  1. I would rather have neither which I think is the point.
  2. So there is no reason. I don't want JR Smith signing with me. I want Tim Duncan or Steve Nash players that will appreciate a well run organization that prioritizes winning.
  3. I've never understood why you would buy a player out. His contract is only partially guaranteed next year so it's essentially a trade asset for Atlanta to package to a team looking to get off a players long term deal. I wouldn't do it if I'm the Hawks management. Let him sit at home if he doesn't want to play and collect checks but hold onto his contract for a trade asset.
  4. Dude, seriously? The Hawks got a late first rounder for a 35 year old specialist with rapidly declining skills on an expiring contract. They were lucky to get more than a bag of chips for Kyle at this point.
  5. Howard brings it. Period. He's an elite rebounder. I have yet to hear of him having any attitude problems that have been alluded to in the past. By all accounts he's solid in the locker room. I don't think this team is in rebuild I think it's in remodel mode.
  6. I love Korver for what he gave us but he's done it's time to move him
  7. This entire situation is a mess. It's roster mismanagement plain and simple. Dennis Dwight and Milsap are very good players there is no reason the team should be this bad. And now you have to trade your best player because you're not good enough to keep him and he's too old and expensive to play on a bad team.
  8. The Hawks set themselves back 5 years when they fired Danny ferry.
  9. I thought this team would be a better version of last year's team with a legit rebounding Center. That obviously hasn't been the case. I also thought that Howard would be a better pick and roll dunk machine than he has been. Korver isn't playing well but there have always been stretches in the season where he all but dissapears. Millsap missed last nights game but that's going to happen periodically over an 82 game season. The two missing parts year over year are Horford and Teague. I've got an open mind for someone to show me how the stats will support their assertion that Horford is the reason this team sucks now but I'm finding that real hard to believe at this point. Teague was a very solid player for us. Maybe the Hawks FO made a mistake by diluting a position of strength and should have held onto Teague atleast until this year's trade deadline. The end result either way is this team isn't playing very well at all right now. Your thoughts?
  10. Because he doesn't play winning basketball.
  11. Some names of note: 22. Al Horford 25. Paul Milsap 47. Dwight Howard Dwight Howard is averaging 13.0 rebounds per game this season. The prior year ESPN had him ranked #14. I'm trying to figure out why the experts had projected such a precipitous drop in Howard's value. Milsap is probably about where he needs to be at 25. Hordord. Oh Horford. Considering his poor rebounding for the position and his lack of being able to shut down the paint defensively I would say Horford would need to average 22+ ppg to justify the 22 spot in these rankings. I thin at the end of the year it will be closer to Howard's 15.6 I would like to hear if anyone can attempt to justify ESPN's rankings. http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/page/nbarank4150/nbarank-players-41-50
  12. Didn't the Hawks win tonight?
  13. Howard is pushing Embiid all over the floor. I love his rebounding and shot blocking. He's the reason I'm watching a Hawks game at 2 o'clock on a Saturday.
  14. No mention of Danny Ferry???? You do know he is by far the worst thing that has ever happened to the Hawks according to the local race baiters right?
