They are playing decent ball, but they're really only one injury away from being mediocre. They struggled without Arenas the other night, against Boston (currently 9th in the division.) Their record for the last 10 is 4-6. They're only 5 games above Chicago, who sit in 11th in the division. Chicago and New Jersey have better records for their last 10 games. To call the Wiz playoff bound after 3/8ths of a season is very loyal of you. :)
If the balance of power is shifting towards the East, wouldn't it then make sense for LeBron to sign with the Clippers where he'd have to beat the Lakers and then only 1 of the East teams? Bosh and Wade still don't even win their division.
