based on last year alone i highly doubt that. The 8th seed had a .530 winning percentage. I think you underestimate teams like washington, philadelphia and even milwaukee. i think it'll take 39-40 wins just to sneek into 8th. because beyond miami nobody will dominate, therefore teams like the raps and those teams i just mentioned should be in and around .500 and be competitive vs each other and beat up on the orlando's and charlotte's of the world. look at chicago, any of these teams afraid of them?

Teams that should be above .500- (possibly well above)
Miami
Brooklyn
NYK
Indiana
Boston


Teams that should be around the .500 mark or a little better/competing for 6-7-8 seed
Philadelphia
Milwaukee
Toronto
Chicago
Washington

IMO 42 wins might not even get you 7th. I think you now need 40-41 wins to be an 8th seed.
