I remember one year the Hawks surprisingly started the season 13-0 (or was it 12-0?) and went into the all star break leading the division. They ended up making the playoffs.... and then getting bounced out in the first round. I'm just saying is all.
Then again, THIS Eastern conference isn't exactly the Eastern conference of the mid- to late-90s.
Just a few thing bothered me about last nights game. It should be on prime-time at a major network. I shouldn't have to channel surf at 8:30 to find it on TNT. Let Yao Ming play. Give the millions of Chinese fans what they voted for.
