I believe it's possible; I'm sure people said the same thing about the Toronto Raptors last year. Joe Johnson would have to be amazing, though. Horford would have to become a veteran quickly, and Josh Smith would have to rebound alot as well. I don't see them strong enough down low, but I didn't see Toronto strong enough down low, either. I think it's always possible, even with a young team, but right at this moment I still have them as a bottom-ten team.

Hawks are now 2-2 with their victory over the Suns as Josh Smith and Marvin Williams were our 2 leading scorers. We ready to rise up. This is our year. Now or Neva!

I say yes they will. Horford, the Williams', Childress, and Law will give Joe Johnson and Josh Smith the help they need to clinch a spot in the east.

Their biggest issue is still at the point and the future of this team rests on Law's improvement.

Should be a very interesting game tonight between 2 up and coming teams. Charlotte and Atlanta.

I'm not a diehard Hawks fan but I really like their team this year and am a big fan of Al Horford. I definitely think they have a chance to make the playoffs.

They have got a chance. A much, much better chance that last year (obviously). The Hawks are stacked with some great players--some of which are beginning to develop into the players they were predicted to be, ie: Marvin Williams. When Johnson and Smith are hot, they're hot. Zaza is playing some of the best ball I've ever seen from him. Excellent inside game.

But they're only 3-6...

Will they be able to stay healthy and consistent throughout the entire year? Ahh..I don't know. We'll have to wait and see.

Right now, focus should be put on developing as a team, with long-term interests in finishing near, or possibly in, the 8th playoff seed. I don't see it happening, too much youth, but there's always the chance. If they were going to contend, however, I think we'd have seen that by now.

i think they have a chance, but will be hard to get even the 8th. But they have a good team, so its possible.
