    I think we will be an improved team but come up just short of the playoffs. We won 35 games last year I think we fall in the 39-43 range. Might be enough to get in but the East has been on a steady incline so it's hard to call it.

    The Pistons won something like 43 or 44 games and finished with the 8th seed. Still got my fingers crossed for Wall or Boogie to hit the block. Can't really see any other Stars becoming available. AG/Ibaka/Cousins would be a top 5 front court and puts us back on the map.

    Yea signing Vogel was huge. He's going to be great for the development of our youngins
    AG and Mario specifically. The defense should be on point but my main concern is the scoring. As for AG playing the 3 I'm cautiously optimistic. He can gaurd the position no problem but he needs to become more consistent as an outside shooter.

    They could go back to Thabo for the size and d. Bazemore better suited as a 6th man on that roster imo. No knock he's definitely starting material in this league.

    We'll see. I don't think your squad that special but I could be wrong. That's not a contending roster. You guys over achieved.

    Horford couldn't do anything with better Atlanta rosters and he's a 🤬 rebounder where sullinger as fat as he was was one of the better rebounders in the league per 36 last year. And Isaiah just in a situation where he gets to jack cause no one else can create their own offense consistently if at all. And he's BBQ on d. No chance stopping kyrie, Lowry in a series. Pound for pound celtics don't have better roster than cavs, raptors, pacers or Hawks.
    Jaylen brown isn't about to save the day, you guys should have went with Dunn or Murray then maybe yall would be straight.

    I just don't think you guys are equipped. Just some try hards. You need more ppl.

    No disrespect.

    Lol we'll see man rofl at the Hawks, I'm aware of sully's rebounding ability but his inability to stay in shape was too problematic. I believe horford will be utilized better under Stevens. I'm optimistic rozier and smart will improve their offensive game, I don't think we're there yet but no way in hell will we finish as the 6th seed I'm willing to avi bet on that
