NBA Season Recap: Eastern Conference SouthEast Division

Miami Heat  46-20 (1st Southeast Division, 2nd Seed Eastern Conference)

Well Miami is one game away from elimination in the Eastern Conference Finals, so no season recap available for them yet.  But they definitely had some great moments as they finished second in the Eastern Conference and their big time player, Lebron James, won yet another MVP.

Atlanta Hawks 40-26 (2nd Southeast Division, 5th Seed Eastern Conference) 

Atlanta Hawks Season Recap

Looks like it might be time to break up the core group of this team as they just never seem to get past the first round, and never make much noise in the playoffs.  They lost in six games in the first round this season, but never looked that much into that series with Boston, so I’m interested to see what this team looks like next year.

Orlando Magic  37-29 (3rd Southeast Division, 6th Seed Eastern Conference)

Orlando Magic Season Recap 

Already changes happening with the Magic in this offseason for them as they’ve fired the general manager and coach.  It doesn’t surprise me at all that Stan Van Gundy is out a job, even though if I was him, I would left town before this anyways.  All that drama with Dwight Howard would be enough to run anyone from there.  Now there’s the rumors flying that the Magic might look to Phil Jackson.  Keyword there is rumor.  Who knows how much legs that story has or if Jackson would be that interested in the job? I don’t think the pieces are there for a championship, which seems like the type of place that Jackson if he comes back would go to.

Washington Wizards 20-46 (4th Southeast Division, 14th in Eastern Conference)

Started the season with an eight game losing streak, not exactly the best start to a season.  But hey they did end their season with six wins in a row that included wins against the Bulls and two wins for the Heat.  But still that many games under .500 and just not much winning happening leads this Wizards team to try to add pieces for a better season next year.

Charlotte Bobcats 7-59 (5th Southeast Division, 15th in Eastern Conference) 

What can we even say about this team?  They didn’t even win the top pick, but as I said they probably need the top two or three picks to try to even win more next year.  Do we think in a regular full season this Bobcats team wins that much more?  They did make history with their season as lowest number of wins, so that’s going for them.  And just to add more misery to the season, this Bobcats team didn’t win one game in April.  Not one win in the month of April as they ended the season on a 21 game losing streak.   Go get them next year Bobcats.
