    I agree with Walt. This team isn't going to make the playoffs as is. We need to see who else they pick-up.

    Unless the east gets a whole lot better (and I mean top to bottom) I don't see how we don't make the playoffs. This team is better than last year's toxic mess. If the Hamilton/Boozer trade goes down, then we are in the hunt for HCA in round one IMO.

    Right now, we're a bit thin at the 4-5 positions. We have CV and Kwame starting at 4-5 and Maxiell backing them both. If we add a center or two, I'd agree that we can fight for the 4th seed.

    Well, my opinion was about the team "as currently constructed". A Rip-Boozer trade, or a PF/C signing will change the outlook substantially.

    That being said, I don't think Boozer can bring much to the table at this point. Neither he nor CV can really contain the likes of Howard, Shaq, Perkins etc. I can't believe I'm saying this, but at a minimum we need a solid backup for Kwame.

    With the way our team is currently constructed my gut feeling tells me we will rank 7th come playoff time...

    This roster is far from completed...The fact that we have two star shooting guards signifies that were not finished.

    I say we win at least 25 games. It's possible we could even get to 35 . . . :)
