Re: Atlanta Hawks

I just can't get excited with the Hawks, even as a self-proclaimed bandwagon hawks fan

This team IS still incapable of beating Orlando in the playoffs

and probably Chicago, Boston, and Miami, also...

right?

Re: Atlanta Hawks

and New York (now), and possibly even Philadelphia (who's one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now)

Why is Josh Smith allowed to take 3's? The Hawks damn near blew it last night after being up almost 20.

Such a frustrating team. But impressive win last night.

Re: Atlanta Hawks

Larry Drew was such a terrible hire, as was locking up a B+ player at best to one of the richest contracts in the league when he has 2 prime years left at best. This team is such yawn. Nothing exciting at all.

Better than last year, but who cares? We're going out in the 1st or 2nd round guaranteed, and this is such a boring team that needs to be blown up and rebuilt. This team is never going anywhwere. Ughhh at signing Joe Johnson to that contract. We have no prayer of ever doing anything because of that. And Larry Drew is a joke

what do you do for the team or tv station or whatever that your internship depends on the season yet you have to ask what the chances are

Re: Atlanta Hawks

I was just trying to spark conversation (although there clearly aren't enough Hawks fans to do that). I know the team doesn't have much of a shot if they can even get past Orlando.

I intern with the game entertainment department.

This post is spot on. I still wonder wtf they were thinking signing Joe to that contract. Sure would be sweet to get a 1st round win against ORL though

I retract this statement,

and will clarify by saying that they have my attention now

2-2 going to Chicago!

Re: Atlanta Hawks

I would call this season a success for sure, obv the Hawks aren't NBA elite but they are seemingly getting closer.

There are definitely areas that need improvement, but one of those was PG at the start of the season imo, and I really like our PG situation now.

It would be great to have a big man that plays like a big man though, I wonder what it would take to bring Dwight Howard home?

I don't know who's a free agent out of this group, but I wouldn't mind packaging one of Crawford, Hinrich, or Williams along with a couple draft picks and a big man (probably Horford but maybe Smith if the Magic have some cap room) for Dwight.

Right now I feel like they have a bunch of really good complimentary players. If they can land a legit superstar or 2 I think the Hawks could be a top team in the NBA.
