    Immense is right.

    To put this in perspective...

    Atlanta Hawks 2013/14 - 38 wins
    Atlanta Hawks 2014/15 - 37 wins in 45 games. And there are still 9 games left until the All Star Break.

    Really the results of this paper aren't surprising.

    Socioeconomic advantages such as wealth and societal status are synergistic benefits in that they are force multipliers. Just as the ingenious...

    GSW's record is more impressive. However, given the respective talent of the teams, what the Hawks are doing is significantly more impressive to me.

    How many coaches in the NBA could pull 36-8,...

    Still, if Thea's training is as extensive as is implied then she should spot hints that Oliver is trained in combat.

    That isn't the same as a solid team defensive scheme with solid defensive players and depth.

    Sure, Lebron is a premium defender. Shumpert can defend if he's healthy and motivated. Mozgov isn't...

    This is BS. If he put in his 2nd and 3rd stringers he can't be expected to do much more than that.

    The 2nd and 3rd stringers are competing for playing time and sharpening their skills for the...

    More than a few times back in the day.

    The only games I play are Poker based (Hold em, Lowball, Omaha, 7-stud, etc). I win more than I lose and have years of logs to prove it (sitting in a box...

    Did Kevin Love suddenly learn how to play defense? Did Anderson Varajao magically recover? If not, then I wouldn't be so high on the Cavs... GSW and Atlanta are top 5 defenses AND top 5 offenses.

    Definitely sounds weird, but it would be a complete travesty if he ends up with one of the greatest shooting seasons in NBA history and didn't make the All Star team.

    Personally I'm not thrilled with Melo being an all-star this year.

    This isn't to say that he's not an all-star talent, I'm just personally opposed to giving an all-star nod to any player on a team...

    Without knowing who signs where in the off season, I'd have to say that the 76ers and Boston are in the best position to build a long-term team.

    However, that can all change at the drop of a hat...

    Personally, having followed both teams fairly closely this season I think it's highly unlikely that OKC would sweep the Hawks in a 7 game series. It's not because the Hawks are an awesome team...

    Bucks - I put them as a 25-30 win team. Under Kidd they're playing well above their expected level.

    Knicks - I figured they'd be bad (30-35 wins) due to roster turnover and a new system, I didn't...

    I liked how tonight worked out.

    The tank roles on and we got to see the youngsters get more time on the court.

    There's nothing wrong with both tanking AND developing the young talent. Some of...

    There's no way the Hawks are being moved this season.

    #1 in the East.
    Selling out games.
    Elite coach on the bench.
    Record sales prices for teams (increasing the cost of a move)

    1. It took a few seasons but DWill finally realized (and admitted) that he's a "system" player. There's nothing wrong with that, the problem is that like so many players before him he assumed that...

    PG's are the most heavily stacked position in the NBA. For $7M we can get a similar quality point guard that's both younger and more athletic.

    I doubt many teams would give up a first for JC...

    Wow, very rough piece of coal for Cavs fans.
