What Did We Say....

Keeping it really simple - Hawks. 3 seed. 52-29. Yep, already predicted (well, except for the fact that we said 51-31 at the time of this blog), but let's just hope the fact that this is done means - ALL BACKCOURT players get the rest they need...

Seriously, Mike - don't play us (literally or figuratively)

Gee, why didn't you link to this?

"Ok, you had to read through all of that just to get to my predictions, so here they go:

Best Case Prediction - 52-30 (4th in Eastern Conference)
Worst Case Prediction - 44-38 (6th in Eastern Conference)
My Prediction - 47-35 (4th in Eastern Conference) and a likely 2nd round playoff exit (though we reserve the right to say that we may lose in the 1st round)"

The thing is you make SO MANY predictions, Atl, that how can we give you credit? While my grandfather watches football games he predict an interception coming up for the team he is rooting for throughout the whole game. When they actually get one he says, "See? Told you so."

Just seems a little much to toot this horn. Otherwise, you run a nice blog and have good insight. Why cheapen it this way? Or...where is the column about how you didn't see how this team would fit together until the season started, and then you were right on it early on? You wouldn't be alone in admitting that. I certainly didn't see it, myself. And I thought they would have a legit shot at winning 60 games after that hot start. I should have known Woodson would wear them down like he did.

@rbubp, uh, I think I DID address that very point in that I was off base on PLENTY of things - mentioned it throughout the season about Jamal, about our prospects, about being worse than the Celtics. About how good the Wizards, Bulls, Raptors could be...said all that..

So, for the one thing I said a month ago which was - we'll be the 3 seed. You can't let that slide in...it's really all tongue in cheek. I haven't even crowed much about the fact that the signings I said would suck (Marvin and Bibby) is true or that the signings I wanted like Jack or Andre Miller are better than Bibby (though Sessions could have been a bust)...so, the point is you are right, but maybe I should have been more clear about the fact that I don't know much...messed it up a bunch, so I just wanted to be right about something ;). I'll make sure to address that in my end of season report. Fair?

oh, and I'll definitely be saying - Woodson is who he is. I was 10000% right about the fact that no one should believe that he's going to play Teague when he said so emphatically that Teague was going to play at the season start...I knew that was a lie and of course, at season's end - it's all about how good the starters are and how this was going to be a learning year...

Which is simply another way of saying - i wasn't going to play him unless something happened that forced me to. So, I'll man up and say I'm wrong about a TON, but how I feel about Mike Woodson isn't one of them. The only way he could be worse is if he were to put his hands in it to the point that the team quits on him. That's really all I can give him credit for this season...that and knowing when to put Jamal into the game
