  1. Thought I'd post this here instead of PMing since I think many would want to know. Wife and I evacuated yesterday morning from Beaumont based on what we thought we were seeing emerge. Hunkering down for the time being in a hotel room in Baton Rouge. We just got word that our county's emergency management office has issued a mandatory evacuation for our neighborhood in the last hour. Based on what I've learned from people who have lived in the area for a few decades, it's going to be a close call as to whether we get water in our house--probably more likely than not, but it's not a given e

  2. Dennis Schröder understandably has his own thread already, but a few others on the Atlanta Hawks roster will be balling in FIBA qualifying tourneys, beginning tonight: * Nicolas Brussino and AmeriCup host Argentina (FIBA World Rank #6) begins round-robin play in Group B tonight, in Bahia Blanca, against Venezuela. Argentina schedule (Group B - Bahia Bianca, Argentina) 8/27 vs. Venezuela 8/28 vs. Canada (Andrew Nicholson) 8/29 vs. US Virgin Islands Semifinals - 9/2 (Cordoba, Argentina) * Joining Dennis in Group B of Eurobasket pla

  3. Posters like @Hotlanta1981were saying that the pick would be essentially a 2nd round pick and that is was a meaningless trade. Now what do y'all think??? The Cav's still may make the playoffs next year so the pick will still be in the teens but a near lottery pick for a 35 year old specialty player on the last year of his contract? Not Bad! Not Bad at all?

  4. Good things come in twos for Nicolas Brussino: 2 points (1-for-4 FGs), 2 boards, and 2 steals, as Argentina heads 2 victory over Venezuela in their AmeriCup opener. ~lw3

  5. Finally Jordan Crawford has completed his journey around the league (and China) and is back to save us.

  7. I do agree with him about the bar being set high for Collins. I am still tremedously excited about Collins but it feels a bit like some people are viewing him as being dominant from day 1 so when the question is who underperforms it is both about the player and about how high the bar has been set. For a lot of enthusiastic fans here, the bar has been set very high, IMO. That won't influence my own expectations but if you use the standard of the most optimistic fans it seems more likely he will underperform - similar to a "sleeper" in a fantasy draft where teams are drafting him where his u

  8. Y'all acting like point guards lead teams to championships lol. Outside of Steph Curry, Isiah Thomas and Magic Johnson. I would love to see y'all name a PG that leads a dominate team as the best player.

  9. People keep saying this, but he's a fine passer! Even disregarding that, the Lebron effect or poor coaching, there's one thing that separates Kyrie from a "volume chucker": the dude is maybe the best finisher at the rim among guards and wings in THE ENTIRE LEAGUE! He'll prove himself this year I'm sure, all I'm saying is the evidence is there!

  10. You know the primary goal is to draft someone worth building around and then adding FAs around him. Doesn't work very well the other way around.

  11. AJC staff report story on the Cook signing contains some details that make that acquisition still more impressive... So, it appears the Colonel got Cook for essentially the same make-good contract we'd previously given to Patterson or a number of other training campers in the past. I like that. Here's how I for one am grading specifically the free agent negotiating results of this first off-season for our rookie GM: Cook: A Dorsey: D (.... while others crow about the timing of the signing being block-headed (fanatic), my concern is more basic--why did he meri

  12. @Vol4ever, I get that, but there's no harm in making an initial assessment based on what we know right now, imo.

  13. I've watched every video you posted of Donic and I have concerns about his ability to create space in the NBA. If you're skilled you don't have to be an uber athlete, but there is a Mendoza line for athleticism that makes it hard for you to be a star. I'm less concerned with max vertical and top speed, but he appears to lack quickness and suddenes in his game. There is very little separation between low end and top end speed which is necessary to create deception. It's the difference between being on a sliding scale Adam Morrison -> Nik Staukas -> Doug McDermott-> Kyle Anderson ->

  14. I say Josh over Augmon. Love him or hate him, Josh had a much bigger impact on the franchise than the Plastic Man. Stats wise and he has more memorable moments. Mookie over Teague. Mookie is the Hawks all time leader in Apg, spg, total steals , 3 pointers made , box +\- and he was on the all defensive team several times.

  15. I think most of their trade discusssions with Love have come in deals where they are trying to land players like Butler or Anthony.

  16. I'm more positive on the upside of the pick right now. The protection on it still makes me leery but there is a very realistic scenario where we end up with a mid-round pick. Probably more likely that they either tank or keep LeBron than they keep trying to win after losing him but it is a real possibility that they do choose to stay in the playoff picture post-LeBron.

  17. Crowder, IT, and Love would keep the pick in the teens even without Labrawna.
