Suns making the playoffs?
 
Just wanted to see if, anyone believes that this team is going to make the playoffs? I think this team can make a 7 seed but, not a 4,5 and 6th seed!

Well considering we don't have Amare I really don't see us making a run in the playoffs if we do get in, but nonetheless I think the 7-8 spots are obtainable.

We are making it, but will T-Mac it up in the 1st round.

Suns got a chance to catch Dallas for the 8 seed, but they will lose 4 - 1 when they face LA in the first round

Wouldn't it be great though, to knock off the Lakers in the 1st round!!!

i rather see the Suns face and finally beat the Spurs, forget LA, the damn Spurs always put the Suns out, they gotta beat them cats eventually:banghead:

yea I agree with you there I hate the Spurs.... It's tough for me to figure which team I hate more.

If the Suns can win at Orlando Tuesday, they will be in position to be in 8th place by Thursday. The Mavs just lost to the Thunder and they have Spurs and New Orleans up next.

I'd much rather face L.A. in the 1st round. Pretty sure we would get sweeped by Spurs once again if we don't have Amare. Will he be back in time?

Making the play-offs would be great but, getting a lottery pick and choosing a young big in the first round would help us better in the long run I think.

suns are now 4 games behind dallas for 8th spot, we got about as much hope of making playoffs as lattrel sprewell does ever playing nba again.
And yes we traded that lottery pick away in yet another great trade decision by the ever fantastic steve kerr and co. ( massive sarcasim there if you couldnt get that)
And signing stromile swift what a piss away of money that is, thought ur tryna save money robert saver not waste it?

We do have the pick, it is top 22 protected.

Probably not. Right now the would-be 8'th seed (Dallas) is 41-27. That's a 4 game cushion they have over the Suns (37-31) with only 13 to play.

Even if they play merely .500 basketball (wishful thinking) for the remainder of the season (let's say 7-6), we would have to go 11-2 to make up those 4 games. If they go 8-5 or 9-4 instead (more probable), then we'd have to run the table.

It's highly unlikely, and quite frankly I hope it doesn't happen so that perhaps changes will be made. The first move should be showing Steve Kerr the door and telling him to not let it hit him in the azz on his way out of town.
