Hawks' point guard Mike Bibby hasn't forgotten the team's Game Seven loss to the Celtics in April's NBA playoffs and still believes his team could have won.

"I think we definitely could have beaten them," Bibby said. "We just didn’t play well on the road at all, and I mean at all. But things happen for a reason. Maybe that was the start for us to excel this season."

ATL beat the Lakers in the regular season, albeit on a wacky [expletive] play, but they still beat them

Yeh I remember that. But didn't the Lakers beat them by like 40 points in the next game or something? I remember it was Mike Bibby's debut and the Lakers just dominated that game.

LOL.

2-10 road
2-7 road
4-12
5-8
2-8 road
6-17
1-3 road

7-28 (25% FG) shooting on the road...

Bibby is garbage.

Kinda funny, that was probably the first time I've ever cheered for Mike Bibby. lol.

I went to two of these games in Atlanta, and as fun as it was to see the Hawks win those games, the reality is that the Hawks didn't know how to beat the Celtics on the road, and that's why they lost, and lost badly.

In many regards, this was as lop-sided as a seven game series could be. The Celtics dominated at home, and the Hawks played slightly better than the Celtics in Atlanta.

Props to the Hawks for what they did; but, in reality, they didn't do anything other than protect home court.

If the Hawks bring that passion and intensity to all 41 home games this season, then they will be a 50-win team and may have home court in the first round.

If they screw around like they did last season, then once again they'll be lucky to make the play-offs, and may not be as likely to catch a top seed napping the way they did this past season.

What the Hawks did this past play-off, isn't really as impressive as the Lakers taking a 3-1 lead over Phoenix in 2006; and we all saw how the 2007 Lakers fared in the play-offs.

If the Hawks dont' build upon this, then over time, the scare they put into the Celtics will be a forgotten historical foot note, and nothing else.

What's sad is the Hawks actually took them to 7 games...we only took them to 6
