Atlanta Hawks Series Writeup:

*Note to all voters
Please remember these teams are not the same.

boston no longer has KG or Ray Allen
Hawks now have David West and Ray Allen


Felton|Rondo
R.Allen|Garcia
Smith|Pierce
West|Wilcox
Perkins|Yao

My goal was to have a more balanced team while having a better one at the same time.
Since we made the playoffs at the fifth seed that means are wins have went way up. I have a Post player David West. He was a challenge to get. Risky untill i had the chance to nab Allen. Also i upgraded at PG. Raymond is way better. Bibby is older and over the hill. he is declining. Felton is an energetic PG that is a great passer and scorer. he averaged 14.4 and 7.4.? He is a better fit. Also we have gained sharpshooter Ray Allen for that last second shot and finals experience. We managed to finally put Smith back at SF. and nab defensive and rebounding specialist K-Perks (Kendrick Perkins) who is also a recent champion yet again playing with a great PF.

The C's dont have as much as they started with. Yao was acquired, yeah... but for KG. KG was the best Celtic last year. Paul was overrated a bit. he wouldnt have went to the finals without KG(not on team anymore) or Ray Allen(also not on team anymore). they have failed to resign 6th man James Posey. they have a bench but how much is a bench used in the playoffs any way? Garcia has no experience in the playoffs, im pretty sure Wilcox hasnt either.

KG was important. He was a steal. They will really miss his energy, post domination and passion for the game. they were imo raped for yao. no need imo. Yao will probably be injured all post season just like past years. they have slipped from 1 to 4 in the playoffs.

In the playoffs teams usually have a small rotation.
Mine is

Felton|Law
Allen|Childress
Smith|Childress
West|Moore
Perkins|Moore

That will be a great 8 man rotation but...

Kendrick Perkins|Zaza Pachulia|Robert Swift
David West|Mikki Moore
Josh Smith|Josh Childress|Devean George
Ray Allen|Eddie Jones|Salim Stoudamire
Raymond Felton|Acie Law|Kevin Ollie

*Chill averaged 13ppg 5rpg
*Mikki averaged 9 ppg (GOAT:D)


Boston Celtics didnt do a series writeup.

Atlanta.

Yao Ming has not played a full season in 3 season and breaking up the big three was a mistake (mainly trading KG).

The benchs are push, but Boston doesn't have the depth are the quality in the starting five to beat the Hawks.

The Celtics not doing a writeup really hurts them, they're not bad at all but everyone is looking at one point of view (The Hawks)

Went with Bos. Im not taking health into account. This is a fake team poll so i'll just assume there all healthy. Yao/Pierce. DAMN!

Rondo is only going to improve. Bostons bench imo is much better.

I've just been too busy this week. It's homecoming week and I've had very little free time.

Atlanta.

1. Yao Ming has not played a full season in 3 season
2. and breaking up the big three was a mistake (mainly trading KG).

The benchs are push, but Boston doesn't have the depth are the quality in the starting five to beat the Hawks.

1. INJURIES DO NOT MATTER.

2. Sorry I wanted to change things up. :rolleyes:
