The Southeast Division is one of the three divisions in the Eastern Conference of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The division consists of five teams, the Atlanta Hawks, the Charlotte Bobcats, the Miami Heat, the Orlando Magic and the Washington Wizards.
The division was created at the start of the 2004–05 season, when the league expanded from 29 to 30 teams with the addition of the Charlotte Bobcats. The league realigned itself into three divisions in each conference. The Southeast Division began with five inaugural members, the Hawks, the Bobcats, the Heat, the Magic and the Wizards. The Hawks joined from the Central Division, while the Heat, the Magic and the Wizards joined from the Atlantic Division.
Since its inception, only the Florida-based franchises have won any Southeast Division titles. Coincidentally, both Miami and Orlando have won a minimum of three division titles in a row. As of 2012, only the Heat has won a championship from the Southeast Division; their first was in 2006 and their second was in 2012. Both championships came when Miami won their division title, as well.
The division's geography largely coincides with the Atlantic Coast Conference, one of the premiere conferences in college basketball, as all five of the division's teams are within the ACC footprint (however the ACC's lone member in the Washington, D.C. area will be leaving in 2014).
