That is an obvious YES!!!
I doubt it
I think that six or five seed is a more realistic goal, with four seed a bit of stretch goal.
We cannot expect that everyone else in the 3-7 slots will tank sufficiently.
That does not mean that we cannot be the third best team in the East come April (regardless of playoff seeding), just that we still have a hole to dig out of, and player roles to define and refine.
