I think we should expect to see a better season out of Chris Bosh, with LeBron James back in Cleveland.  Bosh took nearly 300 3pt shots last season, but that will hopefully change.  The closer he stays to the rim, the greater chance he has at grabbing an offensive rebound, as well as increasing his FG%.

The return of Al Horford is huge for the Atlanta Hawks, Pau Gasol replaces Carlos Boozer alongside Joakim Noah on the Chicago Bulls, Thaddeus Young replace Love in Minnesota and will pair up with Nikola Pekovic for the Timberwolves and Nerlens Noel will make his NBA debut for the Philadelphia 76ers.
