NBA Podcast: Atlantic Division Complete 2012-13 Season Preview

Joel C. Cordes@@bballJoelNBA Associate EditorSeptember 27, 2012

No longer the "Titanic," the Atlantic Division made the biggest changes and looks to be the most competitive grouping during the 2012-13 NBA season.

In this episode of "Basketball by Association," NBA assistant editors Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes are joined by lead writer Rob Mahoney to sort the biggest storylines, questions and predictions in the division.

(If the embedded player fails to load, you can find the episode here.)

How will the reloaded Boston Celtics rally around Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce? Will their new-found depth replenish their defense, intensity and energy?

Will the New York Knicks find the right batch of consistency and chemistry now that they have new point guards and a new bench?

Can the Philadelphia 76ers maintain their youthful advantage, even as their lineup becomes more conventional around Andrew Bynum and a fresh host of shooters?

How quickly can the completely-rebuilt Brooklyn Nets coalesce into a legitimate playoff contender?

The Toronto Raptors are certainly headed in the right direction, but can they catch up to the frenetic building pace of their division-mates?

Our Pacific Division preview and the individual previews for all 30 NBA teams are here.

 Bleacher Report's "Basketball by Association" is your final destination for all things NBA!
