[Guide] The new NBA season, under the expectations of the fans, is approaching day by day, and many teams are slowly starting to invest
From intense training, I believe each team has a general goal and direction for the new season.
Now let’s follow in the footsteps of “ESPN” to see what problems need to be solved by the five teams in the Central Division before the new season?
Indiana Pacers: Can Roy Hibbert be productive all the time?
Last season’s Eastern Conference finals made everyone feel Hibbert’s powerful energy and the horror of the outbreak. I believe the Heat players still have lingering fears.
Some people may say that it is pure luck, right?
Facts have proved that this is Hibbert’s strength, and his performance in the second half of last season was impeccable.
In the new season, if Roy Hibbert can remain efficient, if they can reach the Eastern Conference Finals and meet the Heat, then Hibbert can still cause enough damage to the Heat.
Chicago Bulls: Strengthen the three-point firepower and assist the comeback Derrick Rose to regain his glory?
Successful experience and combat models will be imitated and used for reference wherever they are, and so is the NBA.
In the finals, the Spurs chose to empty all the Heat’s players standing outside the three-second zone, which achieved remarkable results.
The Bulls are the same as the Heat, the outside line, especially the three-pointer, is obviously not enough. If Rose can return healthy, then other teams will inevitably follow this style of play to deal with the Bulls.
However, the Bulls also have self-knowledge, so they strengthened their firepower this summer, signing Mike Dunleavy and Eric Murphy, and Jimmy Butler’s accuracy is getting better and better, and his range has also increased.
The Bulls’ defensive ability is unquestionable. If the outside line can be strengthened, it is not impossible to return to the Eastern Conference.
Detroit Pistons: Can Andre Drummond be the core?
This summer, the Pistons made a lot of adjustments. The forward traded for Josh Smith, and the guard Brandon Jennings was signed. The original Greg Monroe had the potential to be an All-Star.
They are very competitive, but they still lack a core figure. Although the three of them have good strength, they are still a little far from the star.
Looking at the Pistons, Drummond is the most likely.
Last season, Drummond proved that as long as he has enough opportunities to perform, he can take on important responsibilities.
If the Pistons continue to train Drummond firmly, he will become the best young center in the league, and the team’s future is bright.
Milwaukee Bucks: With mediocre qualifications, who can save them?
Last season, the Bucks won the last spot in the Eastern Conference and advanced to the playoffs.
In the new season, they also have a chance, but they have to rely on Brandon Knight and John Henson, two players with great potential, to save the status quo of the team’s mediocre lineup, because it is basically impossible for the Bucks to recruit big-name free agents.
Possibly, so whether Henson and Knight can save the team is critical.
Although Knight’s performance is not very good, we see great potential from him.
Henson, on the other hand, is good offensively. If he can still improve, it will be the best for the Bucks. He can also combine with Sanders to deter opponents at the basket.
Cleveland Cavaliers: Looking for a good helper for Kyrie Irving?
Irving is a well-deserved core in the Cavaliers, and this status will continue in the new season.
Although Owen has unlimited potential, it is obviously unrealistic to rely on him alone to support the Cavaliers, so he needs a good and stable helper who performs well.
So who can play this role in the Cavaliers?
In the new season, the Cavaliers have many rookies selected with high picks. Is it Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters or Anthony Bennett?
In short, as long as one of them can be an excellent role player, it is enough for Irving and the Cavaliers.
