I think our chances of getting a higher seed and getting into the 2nd round all hinge on Ersan living up to his contract. 15/8 a night from him on good efficiency is exactly what this team has missed.

But realistically I do think this current team without making a move will struggle making it out of the 1st round.

This is a good thread but I'd ask the OP to always keep editing the title to include what seed we are currently in. Thx.
I don't tweet much, but when I do, it is the same garbage you get from me on here:

6 games better than last year I think. Pretty sure we hit rock bottom at 15-24 prior to the deadline. Need one trade to give us a chance at the first round.

Yes, definitely a floor spacer is needed at the 4.

I wonder if Portland would consider a package including Ersan for LaMarcus Aldridge after Ersan's big game last night in Portland. I highly doubt it but it sure would be nice :D


Nah I'd need them to add in Batum as well.

Batun, LMA for Gooden, Ersan i may consider

In shape 18-22 year olds running out of gas? Hilarious.

Anyone but Chicago. Meeting them in the playoffs would be a nightmare.

It would be fun to see Jennings torch Steve Novak's little buddy Nate in the playoffs, but not at the expense of what a healthy D Rose would do to Young Money.

we have a good team. every night is like a box of chocolates... but for the most part when were rolling were pretty damn solid. this year we have a legit shot as long as we stay healthy. give me a 6 seed or better and lets go party.

The thing that scares me most is the referees. As sad as it sounds, that should never be the case in the NBA regardless of team.

I still think we will end up 7th or 8th seed, with Boston being ahead of us and us possibly catching Atlanta. I think we could make a series against NY somewhat competitive (maybe 6), but wouldn't beat them. Miami would stomp us.

Miami would have issues with our length inside but they do have LeBron.

Replace Ellis with a trade deadline efficient wing scorer we could push Miami to 6 games.

I don't believe that for a second. Playoff focus Miami would crush us. Maybe if you're talking James Harden and not JJ Redick.

ny doesnt scare me for a second with mam on carmelo. i believe were a really good matchup with them in fact.
the teams that are universally more athletic and/or more physical defensively than us are the ones i dont want. new york is neither.

There's Lebron then the leftovers
