The Eastern Conference of the NBA will see two teams who are in the bottom of the table compete as Atlanta Hawks hosts Cleveland Cavaliers in the regular season on Friday. The Hawks are in the 12th spot in the table and they have virtually no chance of making the playoffs. The team is nowhere near good enough to do anything to change their fortune, and even though they have had some favourable round picks, the final result hasn’t come to fruition. This team needs a lot of help from their current squad of players to help them get into a position where the management is able to make good decisions regarding the future of the franchise.
Meanwhile, Cleveland Cavaliers were the runner’s up of the entire NBA last year, and since LeBron James has left the team, they have tumbled down the ranks. They have the worst record of anyone in the Eastern Conference. There are a lot of speculations regarding if the team is tanking the season on purpose to get a first round pick, but that should never be the way out for a franchise such as The Cavs.
