Well, this is going to be a productive and constructive thread...

It's not so bad. To save time and effort, we can all just paste in our replies from last year.

Its a long season and all teams have their ups & downs.  The better teams just have more 'ups' than 'downs'.  But even the best teams have 'down' moments.
 


All true, but my point is that it's unreasonable to hope for this team to win 60+ and go on 10-15 game winning streaks like they've done in the past.

It's not unreasonable to expect that at all.

Age was in the back of my mind, too - especially during last season.

Then BOS went on THAT run.

Then KG went and did THIS:



I look forward to more heroics from him AND Paul Pierce this season and playoffs, too.

After that Hawks Co-Owner went running his trap about BOS's age, KG went on his tear, and tore ATL up, lol.

Stay tuned. More to come from this group.

Not sure if my link displayed in my last post, but just search "KG vs Atlanta Hawks playoffs" on youtube. It's a 3:11 video.

This team is not over the hill.

If we're talking over the hill in terms of to old it's not the team, it's just Pierce and Garnett. That's not a slight to them, it's pretty amazing that they're still playing at such a high level considering they're age(Mid 30s = NBA retirement age). I have no doubt this team will post a solid record and make the play-offs, but to contend we need another all-star. We need a guy who can put up similar numbers as Pierce and Garnett to help off-set their decline.

No.

We need another all-star in addition to what we already have.

It's unreasonable because they haven't been that kind of team since the fall of 2010 when they had a healthy Shaq.

Ah, we need four all-star caliber players to be a contender?
