Except that Chicago might still finish higher, can't argue with the east playoff seeding. And I don't have my Raptor goggles on.
This team with pretty much nobody leading, nobody scoring and without actually having the suited pieces to play the style designed for them still got a sniff of a playoff spot. Not having training camp under a new system for a team that young last year also would have a more pronounced effect than for most teams.
They also have decent backups at every position so that they can withstand a few key injuries better than most.
Having said that, prepare for a first round curb stomping at the hands of Miami if they take 8th seed.
