Greal team atlanta, two victories vs brooklin and other vs pelicans. This team for me final in the east. Is my opinionthey have a very interesting pieces in all roster.
the situation of Atlanta resemble 80's Hawks, when that franchise has a great players but they were falling in playoffs versus inferior teams. "Clearly, we have 4 teams better than us in East (BOS,BKL,CHA,CHI), we look impossible win our division. PHI,WAS,CLE and MIL are well assembled teams and NYK or TOR will go up". "Yes, we can be fifths...or will be out of playoffs" said goikiri.

I won't get tired of telling this Hawks are for real. I did when they were 3-4, and they are on a 7 and counting win streak right now.
They have the Hornets on their division, but it will be a nice battle for the first position, as Hawks proved they can get a win against anyone (BRO twice, CHA itself, among their victims).
Not a fan of Melo as you know, but if I have to have him in my team, Varejao and Nene is just the perfect frontcourt combo next to him. Felton and Jameer, with Delonte's help from the SG, will get the job done for them too.
