I agree. Don't know what the panic is for.

 

To be honest I couldn't watch the season (out of market) just followed the box scores.  And glued into our playoff run.  However our biggest loss I've heard is McRoberts, (however I didn't see anything irreplaceable in the playoffs that I recall.) We played legitimate TEAM ball, no one player besides Al carried our team. CDR has a huge following and I see people begging for him to come back on his Social Media....but I literally CRINGED AND HATED to see him get the ball in our series. (i.e. him handing the ball to Wade to end a game -__- )

Aren't they in the ~$13M under the cap range?

Right now yes. After a backup PG and resigning Kemba and Jefferson next offseason, no.

Indiana- Still going to be a playoff team with George/Hibbert/Miles/West and possibly Stephenson.

Miami- Still going to be a playoff team with Bosh/Wade/Deng/McRoberts/Napier/Granger

Toronto- They've lost no one and were the third seed last year. Will probably still be a playoff team with Lowry/DeRozan/Patterson/Val

Chicago- Added Pau Gasol. Derrick Rose will also be back. Will still be a playoff team with Rose/Butler/Gibson/Gasol/McDermott

Brooklyn: Lost Shaun Livingston and Paul Pierce, still has Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. May miss the playoffs due to age.

Cleveland: Added James and Wiggins. Will make the playoffs with James/Irving/Wiggins

Washington: Replaced Ariza with Paul Pierce. Will make the playoffs with Wall/Beal/Pierce/Gortat

Atlanta: No significant losses, will have Al Horford back. Will make the playoffs with Teague/Millsap/Horford

Charlotte: Replaced McRoberts with Marvin Williams. May make the playoffs with Jefferson/Walker

Who is the odd team out?

Looks like it's Charlotte to me.

Orlando could give us a battle.

At some point, fans need to learn that Vonleh and Hairston are not going to give us much impact. We need 1-2 legitimate vets.

I tend to agree.

I would say are only hope is for Brooklyn to start showing some age.

Looks like Brooklyn or ATL. We "should have" been the 5th seed last season. If not for that loss to Boston at the end we are there (not sure how the tiebreaker with Brooklyn would have worked with us but we were ahead of Washington without that loss). If Al doesn't miss all those games at the beginning of the season then we are definitely #5 last year. We will be right in the mix again.

Doesn't Al have two more years on his deal?

Atlanta was a top four team in the east before Horford got hurt. I doubt they miss the playoffs.
