      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.

Hawk's Draft Review: Alternate Reality Version

22 posts in this topic

Definitely a candidate for the post of the year. Maybe this will shut up some of the post-draft complaining.

Agreed... I'll need to look back through the archives, but it might in fact be the frontrunner for Post Of The Millenium.

The Rudy Gay one had me rofl. Rudy Gay would have gotten praise if he was picked anywhere in the top 10, but if he was selected by Atlanta, they would have dogged the hell out of him -- and us.

Thank you so much for this post. Unfortunately, this seems too real. Everyone like to pile criticism on the Hawks. One day guys like Josh Smith and Marvin Williams will turn into all-star caliber players and will shut up all the naysaysers.

Poor, Poor, little baby that Billy Knight. Nobody likes him...it doesn't matter what he does the poor little baby gets picked on. So all the whining lovers of poor little Billy came up with a really funny way to show that nobody loves little Billy.See, it doesn't matter what he does nobody will ever love Billy...he just can't win with fans that poor thing. He is so nice to fans and so what if he keeps drafting the same position and has 6 of the same position. He is our hero. I wish poor little Billy could get some love because he is so misunderstood. We will love him no matter how he bad he does. I just hope that one day our guy will finally catch a break. Maybe if he drafts Greg Oden next year people will love him...if he doesn't draft a forward over him.

Fans? The DEFT satire that AHF wrote is regarding the media. Try again. Enjoy the joke. Get off the thread.

Outstanding. Best post of the offseason.For the record, I like the pick. Time to stop drafting upside and fill some clear needs. Not sexy, but necessary.

Excellent post. Posted Image

It's so true to. When you are the Atlanta Hawks, it's like you can't win no matter what you do. Somehow, some way, the media will find a way to spin it onto the most negative slant possible.

No matter who we drafted, they would have found a way to rip us. We're just too easy a target right now, and many sportswriters are lazy- so they'll just run with whatever is the current trend. And the current trend is to talk crap and take shots (many of them cheap) about and at the Hawks. The only way to remedy that is to start winning.

Bill Simmons actually had some nice things to say about us taking Shelden- he called it a solid pick at #5. I take his basketball opinion more credibly than most other sportswriters, because Simmons is not just a guy writing sports to earn a paycheck- but rather because he just might be the biggest NBA fan on the planet, and he has been for years and years now. He truly loves the game, and he's a student of it. He really, really knows his stuff when it comes to NBA basketball.
