Default Will the hawks make the playoffs this year?

i believe that the hawks can do it. if all of there guys stay healthy and dont get injured and they play as a team i believe they could make it. they got 2 good draft picks this year who will make a big change.

I don't think this is a possibility at all, unless Al Horford comes in and is able to bang with the veterans right away, Josh Smith goes crazy with an All-Star season, Marvin starts to shine on or off of the bench, the point guard situation is magically cured and Acie Law=The Messiah, and they don't get annhilated down low.


99.9% chance they get in the lottery and Phoenix gets a future superstar.

Heck, give them another .1% if Acie dishes out ice cream in heaven.

They have no chance. Hope for a top five pick to get a good center and then two years later if Law, the center and Horford develope to what people think they will be, THEN they will have a CHANCE to make the playoffs

Oh, and if Joe Johnson stays.

Sure thing! Hawks will win 43 games and make it to the playoffs!
I understand that Hawks are not yet a complete team, but they have obvious strenghts they lacked the past few years... More maturity (players coming to their own), deep rotation, better post and playmaking, chemistry and hopefuly injury-free season...

I think the Hawks can.

The Pacers, Sixers, Knicks, and Bobcats aren't going to do anything.

These are the teams that will make the playoffs in the east.

Heat, Wizards, Bulls, Raptors, Nets, Magic, Cavs, Bucks, and the Hawk I think will fight to get in at 7-8 with Orlando.

Pacers are better because of JO and Danny G. Sixers had a nice finish to the season, but won't repeat that. Knicks have enough offense that they are a better team. Bobcats have Mek, Richardson, Felton, and Wallace. Enough said, and stop bashing the Bobcats everyone they're not the reincarnation of the Baby Bulls. Each team (besides the Sixers) have a legitimate shot, most better than the Hawks. It'll be another year in the cellar, except for that now-0.2% chance.

We'll see when April comes. All that matters is that the Hawks make the playoffs. They just finished the preseason 7-1. I hope this will lead on to success in the regular season.

Yeah, you're right. Hope they do have a good season; don't want to see Phoenix get a top prospect and continue dominating for years to come.
