15 in 60 Mailbag! (East 2.11.24)

A mailbag edition of our bi-weekly look at the East has a ton of great questions, including but not limited to:

  • ATL: Why is Trae disrespected, how do they make the math work this offseason?
  • BOS: C’s or the field in the East?
  • BRK: What young player would you move Mikal Bridges for? Is this 2025 cap space plan a good idea?
  • CHA: Brandon Miller!
  • CHI: How long until the Bulls have new leadership?
  • CLE: Why are the Cavs absolutely destroying teams right now?
  • DET: Our thoughts on the Grimes/Ivey/Cade trio
  • IND: The development of the Pacers’ young players is now the key to true contention
  • MIA: If the Heat are healthy, are we really gonna pick all these other teams over them in a playoff series?
  • MIL: What has changed under Doc, and is Dame not able to bring it every night anymore?
  • NYK: The Knicks’ playoff chances.
  • ORL: Jonathan Isaac is closing games for the Magic, and what type of player do they need to take another step?
  • PHI: Why do people think that “aloof buffoon” Daryl Morey is a good GM? (We don’t write the questions.)
  • TOR: RJ Barrett’s improved efficiency
  • WAS: Should Wiz just bench Poole? Who will make the playoffs first among the East’s terrible trio?
