(My apologies if I posted this already.)

Specifically - who wins from the shift? Who loses from the shift? Which division is the most powerful? Which one is the weakest? I'm looking for some viewpoints on this here.

Here it is for those of you who've yet to see it:

- The East -

ATLANTIC
New Jersey Nets,New York Knicks,Philadelphia 76ers,Boston Celtics,Toronto Raptors

CENTRAL
Indiana Pacers,Detroit Pistons,Milwaukee Bucks,Cleveland Cavaliers,Chicago Bulls

SOUTHEAST
Miami Heat,Orlando Magic,Charlotte Bobcats,Washington Wizards,Atlanta Hawks

- The West -
NORTHWEST
Minnesota Timberwolves,Denver Nuggets,Utah Jazz,Portland Trail Blazers,Seattle Supersonics

SOUTHWEST
San Antonio Spurs,Houston Rockets,Dallas Mavericks,Memphis Grizzlies,
New Orleans Hornets

PACIFIC
Los Angeles Lakers,Los Angeles Clippers,Sacramento Kings,Golden State Warriors,Phoenix Suns

I'll take this by division.

ATLANTIC
Winner: Toronto. Gets out of division with Pacers and Pistons. Possible to rebuild quickly and leap over Knicks, Celtics, and Sixers.
Loser: None.

CENTRAL
Winner: None.
Loser: Chicago. Stuck with Pacers and Pistons, who aren't going anywhere, and improving Cavs and Bucks.


SOUTHEAST
Winners: Miami and Orlando. Miami should rule this division of weaklings for the near future, and Orlando only needs to get T-Mac a little help to be a solid second. (Also, would it surprise anyone if the Bobcats finished 3rd in this division with around 22 wins?)
Loser: None.

NORTHWEST
Winners: Everyone, for getting out of either the Pacific (Lakers and Kings) or Midwest (Spurs, Mavs, and Rockets) and getting a guaranteed 3 seed instead of struggling to get to 4 and having home court in the first round.
Loser: None.

SOUTHWEST
Winner: None. What a tough divison!
Losers: Memphis and New Orleans. Both will have a tough time cracking the division's top three, meaning a 6-seed at best come playoff time.

PACIFIC
Winners: Lakers and Kings. Like the Red Sox and Yankees, they should be the clear faves to finish 1-2 in this division for years.
Loser: None.

I was going to reply to this myself, but I find myself in complete agreement with JayJayDean and didn't want to just parrot him.

Of course, my being in agreement with JayJay is a somewhat rare occurrence, and obviously I'd like for that not to happen very often. LOL...
