"I think we definitely could have beaten them," Bibby said. "We just didnít play well on the road at all, and I mean at all. But things happen for a reason. Maybe that was the start for us to excel this season."

They could have, but they didn't. They were close by taking it to 7 games but the better team won.

They definitely made a lot of noise that's for sure. Suprised a lot of people around the world. Made a statement that their a team not to take likely and can grab some attention in the East.

A lot of teams could say, we could have beaten so and so, his statement means nothing....

The Hawks shocked a lot of people by forcing 7 games.

He's right (honestly though, most teams that lose in the playoffs can make the same claim) but fact is they didn't. The better team won. Take solace in the fact they were well ahead of schedule, people thought it'd be an easy sweep.

It was a much of a blowout as a 7 game series could get

Yeah but i think loosing childress to a different country is a set back. He is a great 6th man and was always used at crunch time. Marvin better step it up this year

Mike Bibby was the weakest link in the Boston Atlanta series. He shouldn't be talking about playing well. I think the Hawks would have done better with Josh Childress.

I agree. Bibby was a non-factor in that series.I hope they can come back and do something next year,it would be nice to see ATL competing again.

And the Celitcs played great on the road, right Mike. You caught a team that had never been in a playoff game before, and they needed some adversity to make them what they were 3-4 weeks later. If that series were replayed, it would be a lot messier for the Hawks. That being said, it did expose the Celtics. They are a great defensive team, but not individually outside KG and Rondo. The Hawks have quick, athletic, versatile players that really hurt most of Boston's one on one defense. That should be on every teams mind this next playoffs.

Well since Bibby can say 'what could have happened', I have the same right to do as such.

That's weird because Bibby is usually one of the biggest factors in a play off series. He faded last year.

Bibby is quite the sore loser, and he's not even that good to be honest. Let it go Bibby. You lost to the far superior team.

Yes they could

But Stern didnt Allow it.

Garnett should have missed the last two games with a suspension just watch the match sitting in the Arena with Pachulia.
