If you liked this show, you should follow Hardwood Knocks.

The Hardwood Knocks crew analyzes and previews all five Atlantic Division teams: the Brooklyn Nets, Philadelphia 76ers, New York Knicks, Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics.

We're going worst to first. There's some debate between Brooklyn and Philly for fifth, but Adam and I beat out Dan's vote for the Sixers. So, we started with the Nets and their amazingly bizarre collection of players.

Then, we talked 76ers and all the young talent they have there. How good will Ben Simmons be as a rookie? Can they sort out the frontcourt logjam? And is the all 6'10"-and-up lineup a pipe dream?

After Philly, we moved on to Dan's glorious super Knicks. Melo/Porzingis is the best 4/5 combo they can run, but will they? And how much does Derrick Rose hurt in the W/L column.

Next, it's the Raptors, who basically just moved laterally this summer. With no real movement either direction, expect Toronto to stagnate.

Finally, we talk President Brad Stevens' Celtics and the versatility Al Horford adds to them.

As always, you can follow the Hardwood Knocks crew on Twitter. I'm @AndrewDBailey, Dan's @danfavale and Adam's @fromal09. The show's account is @HardwoodKnocks.
