Omega Atrocity

Give your end of season seedings

There are only three divisions, not four. 

 

You acknowledged CHI and CLE were in the same division but put them in back to back seeds again...

I thought NBA gave all three divisions winners a top four seed but not a top three seed, so if Chicago and Cleveland had the two best records they would be 1-2 with the other two division winners taking 3-4. Was I have wrong?

Goondal is right there. Division winners are guaranteed 4 seed at worst.

Don't doubt the Hawks. W/ Horford back the Spurs lite system we're implementing it wouldn't surprise me if we're a top four seed

 

Now that Lou is gone we have no more selfish players. J/s.

It's not like they were world beaters with him in the lineup to begin with. They were 12 games under .500 to end last season and couldn't close out a Pacers team that was falling apart.

Considering where they are headed potentially as a team and organization they had to have one of the more disappointing free agencies in the league. If anything, the addition of horford has fans overrating them. If free agents couldn't buy in to "Spurs South," what does that say?

We were the third seed until Al went down.

The third seed didn't make it out of the first round, either.

What's this thread about again? Seeding, right?

I think everyone except the Magic have a legit shot of winning the Southeast Division.  You have Horford coming back and didn't lose any major pieces this off season.  I see the Wizards, Hornets, Hawks, and Heat  as being pretty much equal, and it should make for a good season.  

 

Wall and Beal are a good back court duo, but i don't view them as elite as some make them out to be.  While they are a great offensive duo, they are lacking on defense.  A Kemba and Lance backcourt should negate Wall and Beal with defense and make for good games between the two.

Where do you have the Hawks? What makes them any better than a lower seed in this year's East?

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
