What an epically stupid and pointless thread.
They are not the best team, not even close, nomatter what nanosecond you wish to measure it across.
Talking about who is the "best team" across a week or any other portion is pointless. It's utterly subjective, and ultimately meaningless.
Cats were on top of the ladder, and the Crocs beat them, did that make the Crocs "the best team" that week? Or that night?
At the end of the day, the table is the measure of success for the regular season. The Hawks are currently the FOURTH best team, and they look likely to stay in the 4. By all means come back and revisit at the end of the regular season. The top 4 is close, and the Hawks could easily finish higher, possibly even 1st which would make them the best over the season.
The finals is a whole new ball game. It will come down to who's fit and firing at the right end of the season. Could be the Hawks, and if so you can justifiably claim they were the best team this season.
