  1. Expect rumors to start flying on the Hawks very soon. Snell has gotten serious interest but there are salary match issues. Do not be surprised if he's moved in a 3 team deal. His value has risen to a low first plus filler. Lots of teams calling on Collins. Hawks are politely listening but are loathe to do anything with him in the middle of a playoff run. Teams are calling on Cam thinking we are now soft on him. Do not expect anything here but rumors will be rumors. Teams are calling on Huerter and offering real value, but he is playing his way into a permanent role

  2. Can we please drop our agendas, it’s not about us and whether or not we are right or wrong but rather our team. I read through like 20 pages of the game thread last night and it was less about our team winning and more about which posters are right and wrong. I’m guilty as well I won’t say I’m not but let’s me more TEAM than ME. We all love the Hawks. Trae scores 2 or 50 I don’t care if we W. Collins plays well or not, if we W. Etc. Reminded me of old Mad tv and the Stuart files.

  3. Wow, what a game... Trae's most impressive stat for me tonight was a 4 assist:turnover ratio. When he is locked in and not making lazy TOs, we're so dangerous. BOGI BOGI BOGI!!! To add to the first point, when Bogi is playing like this, it opens up Trae's game so much. The past 10 games of Bogi is why I was pumped when we signed him despite the aggressive contract Capela is such an anchor for this team... the guy is worth more than what he's getting paid right now and I think even when he gets praise we underestimate his value. Half a season of Capela and my PTSD from wat

  5. A word on Huerter as a teammate. In the Bulls' heyday, players marveled at the assignments Dennis Rodman would volunteer for. Rodman would stay after practice with players who wanted shooting reps...even free throws and volunteer to shag balls. Rodman would ask shooters to stay after just so he could practice rebounding. He obsessed over it, to the point they said he could call if a shot was going in the second it left a shooter's hand. Rodman worked on boxing out alone. He would watch film for tendencies on players and position himself to easier box that player out. He was a craft guy.

  6. I want everyone to give their props to Brandon Goodwin today. 17 points, 8 assists, and 5 rebounds. Just a month a go we were all wanting him to get waived, and now he stepped up big time for us. I love it.

  14. 1 down, 7 to go. Shots were not falling. Won any way. Trae had a bad shooting night. Won any way. Clint had a terrible shooting game. Won any way. Didn't score 100 points. Won any way. Must be a message in there somewhere. This is the west coast where all the giants of the NBA play. Won any way. Two former Hawks started for the Lakers. Won any way.

  15. First of all, his Pacer and Blazer teams never lost a series they were favored to win. Taking low-talent rosters to the playoffs then losing to the more talented team shouldn't be seen as big as a negative as it apparently is. Were folks expecting a lOladipo-led Pacers team to oust the Lebron-led Cavaliers? That they took them to 7 games should be seen as a positive, not a negative. Was a team "led" by injured-lOladipo and injured-Sabonis supposed to advance in the playoffs last year? What is this sliding scale his accomplishments are being judged on? The mental gymnastics Pacer

  17. I have no poster on ignore. I do not plan to put any one on ignore. Do I agree with all posters all the time? No. Surely you jest. If we all agree all the time, what is there left to say? Sometimes, when two Squawk members go at each other, I agree with both of them! How can this be? They both are trying to make a point about something and not all their thoughts center on the exact same thing, thus, both can be right about what they are saying. What I don't like and I believe shouldn't happen: Personal name calling. Not called for any where and especially not here among

  19. Shout out to Brandon Goodwin - he has been bench fodder for many games and he came in and provided some positive minutes. 3-4 with 2-2 from 3 for 8 points, 3 rebs, 2 assists.

  20. Now I feel terrible for waiting until this morning to watch the game. I should have stayed up to support @Spud2nique in the game thread when we were facing the greatest defender in NBA history. Only 56 points and 27 rebounds for JC and Cap. I think he ended their careers with his amazing play and that dominating 0 points, 0 steals, 0 blocks and 2 rebounds. How are the Hawks supposed to win when their key big men go down the black hole of defense that is Draymond Green? Especially when he even refrains from kicking their nads repeatedly. Mea culpa spudster. If you haven’t watch

  22. Boston media: Hawks in talks to send Young and Collins for Kevin Mchale's 1986 socks. Yes, BOTH socks go back to Atlanta so it is a steal for the Hawks.

  23. "He’s always been a great defensive coach and you can just tell. You can just tell what good coaching and defense does, especially out there, it’s a little bit night and day. I feel like in that first game we were able to get in the paint and kind of get whatever we wanted… They made us play, for the most part, a lot of the game, 1-on-1. Nate’s done a good job and they’re winning eight straight." (The Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma on how different the Hawks look under McMillan)

  24. Inject this game into my veins every night!!!!!! Trae doing TRAE things Bogi FIRE Collins elite EFFICIENCY and playing solid defense Snell making 2 pointers??????!!!! Heurter's defense is insane, I still can't believe the rate hes improving, 2 steals! Capela OWNS the paint, watching guys take wonky shots because of his presence Held them under 100 Hunter and Dunn coming back soon! I'm on cloud 9 right now. I don't care who we have in front of us this team is gelling and we have a chance to win every game

  25. Better question, who eats crow at the end of the season for being a Chicken Little and giving up on Bogi too soon?

  26. Bogi was recovering from covid apparently at the start of the season. It is why he looked so bad. Once he recovered from his knee injury it gave him more time to recover from covid. He has been lights out since then. THIS is the guy we signed away from the Kings. Big win today with all those injured Hawks.

  27. What a great come from behind win. Mrs. Sothron and I only are rooting on different sides when the Bulls and Hawks play. It was tough for her to see Lavine look like Jordan 2.0 in the game especially in the first half and still lose by 12 points. I'm sure the media will spin it that the two Bulls All Stars torched the Hawks and not mention a certain player's 42/9/8 game and ya know who actually won the game.

  28. Trae was a superstar tonight. He got his, but also depended on his teammates tonight. His defense was great. Gallo was great. Capella was great. Bogi and Kevin did just enough. Nate is a great coach. This was one of the better wins. We really need to get this next game against Charolette.

  30. It's time to put some distance between ourselves and the other teams for the fourth seed. That run the Hawks went on with the shooting and defense was reminiscent of 2014-2015. Just a fun game to watch. I enjoy blowouts! McMillan for Coach of the Year! This is the shooting we envisioned in the preseason when the team was put together. Also, perfect game from Trae. 30/12 on excellent efficiency. Edit: Capela should be defensive player of the year! Kevin stepping up. Lou is a godsend for the second unti. Bogi is looking way better than his Sacremento days.

  31. Lou is such a shot in the arm off the bench compared to what we had before..

  32. He didn't just bench him because he was playing bad, he benched him because he got hurt we he was slammed to the ground and was grabbing his right arm. That was excellent that Nate recognized that and knew he could rely on Lou while Trae nursed his arm. Excellent coaching.

  34. Nobody was hating on them. It was willing this team to victory through reverse jinxes. Think about it. Crap on Bogi all year? 28 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks 28 points, 17 rebounds, 5 blocks 30 points, 12 assists Hawks? WIN You know where the credit is due.

  40. I guess when Dunn comes back Trae should lose his minutes too, based on this logic. Defense only matters. Let's ignore Snell has the highest offensive rating on the team according to your post. Let's ignore Snell has the 2nd highest NET rating on the team according to your post. Let's also ignore that Kevin, Cam, and Bogi all have a NEGATIVE NET ratings according to your chart. Lets ignore you want him to lose his minutes to guys who also post bad defensive ratings within 3 points of his, with much worse offensive ratings. This is not a good argument for him to lose mi

  44. And just like with Milwaukee, that would be a big mistake playing the city and team cheap. You think it was worth it for them in the end to lose Brogdan just to have to trade assets to acquire Jrue because they missed having a dynamic PG on the roster? Think about this instead of just paying Malcolm 4yrs 85 mil, it cost them 2 1sts, 2 more 1st pick swaps, Bledsoe AND George Hill just to acquire Jrue Holiday. People say there is fear in overpaying a guy. But you end up overpaying in the end anyways trying to add from the outside. Better to retain and go over the cap, than have to jett

  45. Great win! I have to say, for all you who wanted LP gone, all ya'll do is f***ing bring him up. He's not a Hawk anymore stop bringing him up and enjoy the five game winning streak. Getting real REALGMY in here lately. We used to have thoughtful conversations, but lately it's all about who has been right the most and having a measuring contest.
