When LeBron James left Miami for Cleveland he weakened one franchise, strengthened another and changed the entire landscape of the Eastern Conference. Other teams made moves as well, some got stronger, some not so much.

Here are my rankings of the top 10 teams in the East with each squad’s projected starting lineup and first three players off the bench.  This off course is subject to change based on trades and other free agent signings in the future.

    I like your list. Looking at the Knicks roster, specifically their bench I view them as a very dangerous team due to their shooters; Melo, JR, Barginani. Am I living in the past or is this a team of underachievers?
