These Bulls maybe young but their far from babies. For the first time in years Chi-town look to take all that promise to the promised land. Contention in the East may look hard in a conference decked with a reigning champion and two Florida favorites but Chicago are your wild card. Pick your poison. Get pricked by a Rose or be washed away by Noah's ark. Get hung-over from too much Booze or be dumbed down by Deng's British intelligence. If that wasn't enough there are even more Bulls in this pack ready to run you down and stampede to the top of the Eastern Conference.

Milwaukee Bucks

April 24, 2010 Milwaukee, WI. Bradley Center..Milwaukee Bucks Kurt Thomas ,Brandon Jennings , John Salmons ,Jerry Stackhouse , and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute wait take the court again..Milwaukee Bucks won over the Atlanta Hawks 107-89, in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals during the 2010 NBA Playoffs. Mike McGinnis/CSM.

It's time to start giving a Buck about Milwaukee because they have may have been left broke after the depreciation of their big three but now the talent loaded team is paid in full. The days of Ray Allen, Sam Cassell and Glenn Robinson can be left to the past now as the Bucks have some new big dogs in the kennel. Brandon Jennings leads the pack. A revolutionary player who won't back down and since being shut out by the league, has lead a new generation around the backdoor. After some European flavor the NBA sophomore didn't even seem like a rookie last season. The rest of the Bucks antlers are strong but prone to breaking. So long as pure shooter Michael Redd and down under, down low expert Andrew Bogut are healthy Milwaukee will spread through the East like a common cold. After all it is flu season.

Detroit Pistons

February 09, 2010 Milwaukee, WI. Bradley Center..Detroit Piston Charlie Villanueva looks to the scoreboard, Villanueva had no points and 4 rebounds coming off the Piston's bench..Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Detroit Pistons 81-93. Mike McGinnis/CSM.

Things may not be working out right now in the Motor City, but believe me soon you'll be witnessing a renaissance not a recession. Things may not be sounding as good in Motown when the '06 Champion Pistons shocked the world and put the Shaq/Kobe/Payton/Malone Lakers on blast but these Pistons will drive, smoke and blare again. The man behind the mask Hamilton is still ripping opponents and the Prince is still in town remembering times when he rained on the purple parade. It's the unsung duet of Charlie V and Ben Gordon however that look to give Motown classic hits again. You listening?

Indiana Pacers

March 14, 2010 Milwaukee, WI. Bradley Center..Indiana Pacers Solomon Jones and Danny Granger box out Bucks Andrew Bogut for the rebound..Milwaukee Buck won over the Indiana Pacers 98-94. Mike McGinnis/CSM.

The Pacers have had trouble keeping up with the league over the last few seasons. Sure Indy are far from the lottery temple of doom but their even further than their finals appearance in 2001. As the villain of the L Reggie Miller retired the Pacers needed to hire a new hero. Fortunately underrated Danny Granger answered the call. Granger is a player connected with the best in the league and he hangs up as many points as anyone on the board. Still even though he does anyway Danny can't do it all. The boy's good but he needs help.

Cleveland Cavaliers

Apr. 19, 2010 - Cleveland, OHIO, UNITED STATES - epa02124668 Derrick Rose (L) of the Chicago Bulls defends against Mo Williams (R) of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the fourth quarter of their Eastern Conference first round playoff game at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, USA on 19 April 2010. Cleveland defeated Chicago 112-102 to take a 2-0 lead in the seven game series.

With the LeBron situation and ‘decision’ Cleveland have been left as disappointed as New Jersey Nets owner Jay-Z. What more can I say? Since the King left his throne it looks like there won't be any wine and gold in Cleveland for some time. Any hopes of championships and champagne in Ohio burnt away with the last shards of that old number 23 jersey. Still there are still some Cavaliers in Cleveland. Mo Williams didn't end up quitting and his never say die attitude will take Cleveland higher. Antwan Jamison is also still around but the do it all forward really will have to take care of everything. LeBron hasn't just left a void, the disappearance of Big Z and Big Diddy have left a hole in the middle. Will we soon see Mr. Raymond Usher his way out the building? Who's following?
