Tank's Hawks Prediction: 13-69

2004-05 Atlanta Hawks: 13-69

DEAD ON, TANK!!!!!!!! :lol:

Yeah, but look at all the predictions he missed terribly :D

But he did nail the records for Cleveland, Houston and was really close on Miami, Denver, and Memphis. Oh, the Clippers finished ahead of the Lakers :woot:

Here's my picks.

Coach of the Year -- Rick Carlisle of the Indiana Pacers. No team in the NBA went through nearly as much as the Pacers. They've had the most different starting rosters in the NBA and most thought the brawl in Detroit would spell the end of Indianas playoff hopes -- and at times, it looked like it would.

Most Improved Player -- Bobby Simmons of the Los Angeles Clippers. He's turned from a journeyman into a solid all around player.

Sixth Man of the Year -- Tough choice between Ben Gordon and Ricky Davis. But I'm going with Ben Gordon. The guy has been one of the best fourth courter scorers in the NBA -- he's been absolutely amazing off the bench. In fact, I'm still questioning why he's coming off of the bench! Though I do think that Earl Boykins should get consideration.

Rookie of the Year -- toss up between Okafor and Gordon. Since I'm a UConn fan -- I wouldn't mind splitting the award. :D

Defensive Player of the Year -- Marcus Camby. #2 in Blocks per game to Andre Kirilenko (who missed too much time to get the award), #1 in Total Blocks (199) despite playing only 66 games. #1 in blocks per 48 minutes. #2 in defensive rebounds per 48 minutes. And only #8 in Defensive Rebounds per game in just 66 games. Too bad he won't get the recognition he deserves because he plays in Denver.

MVP -- Shaq. I don't like the man as a player. But he deserves it. Nash has had the addition of Q to help him and the Suns. The Heat are nothing without Shaq. Dwayne Wade is a good player, but he's helped dramatically by the presence of Shaq, and isn't capable of carrying that Heat team to the playoffs without Shaq.
