    • Updating to 4.1   10/27/2015

      Woohoo the update for 4.1 is out, which means lots of bug fixes and making things work better than they have on the new 4.0.x system. The upgrade to the look and feel may take a couple of hours but this default theme will be available during that time. Once the Hawksquawk theme(s) have been manually converted over I will get everyone switched back. Thanks for your patience everyone.

  1. What is the word that Dominique mispronounces

    Strength is a English's "shibboleth." Seriously, I wish pronunciations like "strenth" and "axed" (instead of asked) were standard. Soooo much easier to pronounce.
  2. J Won't Get Rich Off This Deal

    I remember reading an article years back when Netflix was just beginning to put together an algorithm to recommend movies to its customers. They stated that moveis like Napolean Dynamite caused the most troubles for their efforts because people either love it or hate it without any clear pattern why. Don't think this was the exact article, but it's close: http://kottke.org/08/11/the-netflix-prize-and-the-case-of-the-napoleon-dynamite-problem
  3. Papa is now a rolling stone ya know

    JBH beat me to the DEN news. (I'm getting slow in my old Internet age). Anywho, interesting tidbit about the waiting period after waivers. Never heard that before.
  4. Papa is now a rolling stone ya know

    His contract is reportedly non-guaranteed until early October, so grabbing him off waivers would be risk-free for a team under the cap...
  5. Papa is now a rolling stone ya know

    A few teams below the cap might snag him up on waivers. If not, the Hawks will be competing against European teams to sign him, so I don't think he'll sign a minimum contract. But he's certainly a good fit.
  6. Wait, people take a bus from Atlanta to Cherokee just to gamble? All those years of living an hour from the casino and I never knew that anyone other than a few local drunks went...
  7. Ready for an new arena? It's coming

    Ahh, that makes sense. I was trying to figure out what was "wrong" with Phillips.
  8. Phil Jackson speaks about Tim Hardaway Jr

    Haha. Sadly true.
  9. Phil Jackson speaks about Tim Hardaway Jr

    Well, I don't know if THJ will rise to expectations and I don't think the trade was a steal (fair value, which is fine with me). There's a lot of work to be done by the player and the team, and it's not a given that it'll work. But I agree with others who have lost respect for Jackson. I get the impression he's just cashing checks at this point.
  10.   Thriving regional unions would be a good start.
  11. Not looking forward to the deal Horford will be getting next offseason, but he has been a huge bargain on his current deal. (If my napkin math is right, I think other teams will offer him four-year deals in the region of ~$120m).
  12. Public atta-boy for Hawksfanatic

    @hawksfanatic, I was glad to see you covered the Hawks' 2017-18 situation, because I was gonna ask for your take on it.  I suppose my first thought was, "They want to give this current core two years together before they reshuffle."
  13. Tiago Splitter traded to hawks

    The reason, other than age, that THJ cost more in trade assets is that he will be restricted when he hits free agency in two years.
  14. Justin Holiday signed by hawks

      No, the Splitter trade used up the remaining cap space.  Check over at peachtreehoops.com for some of the salary info.   Tiago is the Hawks' primary offseason acquisition.
  15. Austin Team Limits

    10/10 thread title.  Lethal humor.
