My concerns with the length and lack of detail, as I had with the other Buffalo articles, apply here, and as such I'm failing it. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 19:31, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

I'll review this over the next couple days. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 05:05, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Here are the issues I found:

  • "The series went to seven games, however, the Braves lost game 7 115–96 on the road." since you spell game seven out earlier in the sentence, you should later as well. Also, the sentence can be split at However.
  • I'd move the transactions section to the top; basically fix the format of the first sections to the other buffalo season article i just reviewed.
  • "Incoming commissioner, Larry O'Brien announce an" announced.
  • "Buffalo boasted high-scoring super star Bob McAdoo. The Big Mac, as he was known, posted a 34.5 scoring average to lead the NBA, making more field goals than any other player." sentences can be combined, nickname not needed.
  • "converting a solid 81%." rm a solid, starting to feel informal.
  • "40,000 to 467,267" a 10x increase? Doesn't sound right.
  • "6th in blocks per game. second in total free throws, and fifth in field goal percentage" shouldn't be variation; either 6th and 5th or sixth and fifth.
  • MVP can be linked.
  • Any memorable games in March/April? When did they clinch a playoff spot? That should at least get noted.
    • I can not find anything other than the 43rd win which set the franchise record. It seems that this might be the night but the article does not mention it. this search did not help. It is possible that they clinched on an off night when someone else lost.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 07:56, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
  • What seed were they in the playoffs? Might be good to note.
  • "the Braves capture home court" captured.
  • "Home teams won the remaining games" I'd add the to the start of the sentence.
  • "A Unseld offensive rebound " might be 'An Unseld'.
  • "In game 7, Washington jumped to a 28&dnash;13 lead" needs fixing

GAN is on hold, you know the drill. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 03:36, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Looks good now, so I'll pass the article as a GA. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 16:36, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
