The Hawks weren't a bottom rung team - they were consistently between the 3 and 5 seeds.
I dunno why everyone thinks the Knicks are gonna be good - old injury prone and can't even play their 3 best players at the same time comfortably
I meant more in terms of their performance vs. expectations, overrated players, yaddi yaddi yadda.
I think I placed the Knicks in a reasonable spot - as a Knicks fan I think the potential is higher, but I'm realistic. All they need out of the old guys are 10-15 minutes a game, that's not too much to ask. Upgraded the bench at every position, upgraded at PG, overall I think they'll be solid. They can't take down Miami or Boston, but I don't think anyone else in the East can.
