I have just gone through Atlanta's record so far.
They are currently 17-9 and the 3rd seed in the East. Of their 9 losses, though, 7 of them are to Miami, Oklahoma City, Houston, the Clippers, and Golden State... in other words, the playoff teams.
TRANSLATION: The Hawks have done a great job of beating the teams they are supposed to beat.
I don't think they have the fire power to win a playoff series. Even if they finish with the 3rd seed, I think they will be ripe for the picking by Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Brooklyn, or whoever else they wind up matched-up with in the first round.
But that's just me.

Re: Playoff Pretenders
As a Hawks fan, I'm pretty disinterested in this season. Little bummed the team is playing this well, honestly. This year is sort of lost in translation, the real fun will come this offseason. Who knows what's going to happen with Josh and why he all of a sudden changed his tune and mentioned something about an "understanding" with the GM. Not really sure what that means, but I'm interested in finding out.
It's not that they aren't fun to watch, it's that it's hard to take them seriously as a top team.

Re: Playoff Pretenders
Being a fan of the Hawks is like dating that awesome girl in which neither of the families approve of. It's fun during, but there's no long-term future.

This is easily the most fun hawks team to watch since the 2007-2008 season.
