Hi, I'm stopping in from Fear The Sword (Cleveland Cavs blog) to see if the parents of one of your posters, atlantalove want to pick him up as he apparently got lost (maybe ran away?) and wondered over to our blog and posted
this (the post has been removed, thankfully).... (oh, wait here, apparently atlantalove has returned and posted this over at Fear The Sword). And removed once again). Please see for his well being as he was quite angry in his posting.
Now since I'm here and now done with the unfortunate trolling. I wanted to ask what kind of response Atlanta fans would have if a spot opens up on the All Star roster (maybe Paul Pierce will be out) and Josh Smith wasn't added? He's been a 8.9 WARP player thus far...that's pretty damn good. Where as if another Cleveland player was added neither Mo Williams or Shaquille O'Neal (the most likely two players) have a WARP above 4. I think Smith should be in instead of Paul Pierce anyways, he's simply played better thus far.
One last question, the way things are shaping up the second seed is completely up for grabs (Orlando is down 15 pts at home vs. New Orleans as I write this), what I'm wondering is of the potential first round match ups, which team (if any) would Atlanta want to avoid, not necessarily that they would lose/be upset by this team, but that would be a bad match up and push the series longer than you'd like. Charlotte, Chicago, Miami, Milwaukee, Toronto, Boston (hey, its possible that they slip right!). I know for the Cavs it would be Charlotte due to the frustration they cause for our offense and their solid home record. Miami or Milwaukee would be preferable as they are both weak teams that look like they'd fold after going down two games in a series.
