Boston will take 3rd no matter what due to them being the best team in their division. So the best we can be is 4th unless Detroit decides to tank the season for a better position in the draft. However, our schedule is pretty reasonable and our team seems to have remembered themselves of a couple of months ago. I expect (or hope) us to be competitive and fighting for that 4th spot. Other words, we might go against Washington in the first round with homecourt advantage.
Obviously Boston gets the 3rd seed if they win the Atlantic, but if we could have a better record than them we'd have the 3rd best record in the East. If someone had told me the Bulls would have the 3rd best record in the East this season, I'd call the mental hospital and tell them a patient is missing.
I'd just be happy to make the playoffs, but if we ended up being 4th, it would be an unbelieveable achievement.
