4.      Cleveland Cavaliers: The second place Cavs are the favorites for the East. Yeah you heard that Hawks fans.

5.      Atlanta Hawks: New theory, teams are tanking so that the Hawks can't get a lottery pick. Yeah this totally makes sense.

6.      Portland Trail Blazers: Portland you need to do your job of beating the Nets. That is all.

7.      Houston Rockets: So does Harden win MVP? Hard to think what they would look like without him.

8.     Memphis Grizzlies: What Jeff Green did to the Wizards should be considered illegal.

9.      Dallas Mavericks: Did we ever figure out from the league if the hit on Dirk from Livingston was illegal?

10.  Oklahoma City Thunder: I can't wait to see how much Westbrook's mask will get auctioned off for.

14.  Phoenix Suns: It should be fun to see a desperate team in Philips play us this week.  Hopefully the Hawks can pull it off.

15.   Washington Wizards: So if Wittman makes it out of the first round, will he keep his job? I hope they do so they can play the Hawks.

16.  Toronto Raptors: Raptors......yet another team that let me down by losing to the Nets.

17.   Brooklyn Nets: Nets are doing everything in their power to give me a headache and prevent the Hawks from getting a lottery pick. Good for the Nets to start getting things together on a light schedule.
