Atlanta Hawks have some really wishful thinking

Apr 8, 2014, 10:27 AM EDT

The Atlanta Hawks’ Twitter has jokes, even without Deadspin running it.

Of course, Atlanta is in line to be the worst NBA playoff team this season. Kentucky, by seed at least, was a middling NCAA tournament team, and Connecticut would rate even better.

I don’t want to rain on the Hawks’ parade, though. They do that well enough themselves.

    They forgot the seeding in the NCAA tournament goes to 16. So they would actually be the equivalent of this year’s Albany. I guess it doesn’t hurt them to dream though.

    Not an Atl fan…. Really wish they would’ve gotten horford a center though he’s been playing out of position at the 5 his entire career

    If the NBA had a real tournament instead of series, then lower seeded teams could have a realistic chance of winning a championship. But as long the higher seeds get essentially multiple chances to advance, it’s all but a certainty that a 7th or 8th seeded team will never win an NBA championship.
