    All of you.


    We can't finish lower than fourth if we win our division.
    That issue is currently being addressed by competition committee and all indications are that playoff seeding will be changed based on wins not in division .

      That's what I thought too. No more easy home court advantage in the playoffs.. not that it helped last season.

        Division title didn't guarantee home court anyway. Nothing has changed in that regard.

          1) Cleveland
          2) Atlanta
          3) Chicago
          4) Miami
          5) Washington
          6) Milwaukee
          7) Toronto
          8) Indiana
          9) Charlotte


          Cleveland is a head above the class

          Miami, Atl and Chicago are the next best - tier 2


          5-9 seed will be a real dog fight this year, with Washington, Bucks, Indy, Raps and Charlotte all competing. Tier 3 teams

            Casey finally got his guys. His finally doesn't have to come up with a system to hide his players well maybe just JV now. Dd contract year will be his best yet. Lowry I think will have a lessened role so he doesn't go into the playoffs broken down. This year is make or break for JV. Defense/Offense is being totally changed to accommodate him. Contract year for JV. If doesn't become an all star this year I don't think he ever will.

            50 wins
            Third straight Atlantic Division title
            Get pass the first round
            Casey/DD resigned!

              Atlanta got exposed in the playoffs and than they lost their best player in playoffs. I think they take a dip out of the top 4

                and now horford finally gets a chance to play some at his natural position. They still have Korver, they still have teague and they have Thabo to start at sf. Got Splitter now.

                They can go beast mode

                Teague
                Splitter
                Millsap
                Horford
                Splitter

                And they never got exposed in playoffs, they got hurt.

                  Well if Splitter's going to play the 2 AND the 5, I don't see how they don't take the first seed.

                    That lineup is not intimidating to me at all. Thabo could play the 3 but his not the shooter Carroll is. Tiago wont start. They just paid Milsap his going to be in the starting lineup. Kyle Korver is so overrated to me

                      That's why I got the Hawks at #6; will fight with Tor for #5.
                      1) Cleveland
                      2) Miami
                      3) Washington
                      4) Chicago
                      5) Toronto
                      6) Atlanta
                      7) Milwaukee
                      8) Detroit

                      Bos
                      Tor is #3 with a good coach; #5 or 6 with Casey

                        Apparently nobody told him that's part of a profession call COACHING.
                        It's in bold in the job description.

                          The Hawks will still be a great regular season team, even if they aren't built for a four-round playoff run. Losing DeMarre will hurt, but they ran away with the EC last year aside from a nice post-NYK-trade run from Cleveland. Atlanta could "take a dip" and still finish 2nd. Let's not forget how much the EC sucks overall.

                          I'd have Cleveland and Atlanta in the top 2. Chicago and Miami are injury wildcards who have the ability to finish anywhere. Toronto and Washington are probably the most stable and will be in there from #3-6 somewhere. Boston, Milwuakee, Detroit, Indiana, and Charlotte all have soooo many variables and/or young talent, it's hard to say. Wouldn't be surprised if any of those teams finished #15 and also wouldn't be surprised if they clicked, took a leap, and finished #5. I also don't really care. The Raptors need to have a better year than Washington and Chicago and I'll be happy. Would be great if they pushed Atlanta.

                            Lol wut. I'm confused man

                            You said thabo should start at sf, but then in your linup listed millsap at sf. Then also listed splitter twice.

                            And how is horford playing his natural position if millsap is still on the team. Millsap is a pf, not sf. So either you make horford play out of position or make millsap play out of position. Either way, your analysis makes no semce

                              Korver has been beter than your boy demar in net productin, offensive rating and defensive rating for most of his career.

                              And Atlanta has already talked about Splitter/Horford and Millsap front court.

                                Thabo most likely will start, but they will use that lineup this year.
