  1. “Nice. But what does THAT have to do with anything?” The Parliament of Great Britain was obsessed with tea, and not only in the late afternoons. Desperate to save the floundering British East India Company and its stockpiles of leafy product, the Brits sought to apply a duty to tea supplies illicitly smuggled overseas into its North American colonies by the Dutch. This was in the year 1773. Taxation without representation, it turns out, was not a compelling sell for dear old John Bull. While fumbling away the Americas, England’s brand of manifest Western imperialism

  2. Going by all these positive comments after an L, I gotta say, our young guys aren't the only ones growing! Squawkers maturing before our very eyes. Give yourselves a pat on the back, you deserve it!

  4. Good morning Hawks fans!! I had a dream the Hawks absolutely torched the Bulls in a blowout win (over by half time) and Trae looked like a hybrid of peak Curry/Nash, the sophomores played like NBA starters with a lot of room to get better, and the free agents we picked up were actual NBA players that contributed to our win. Did anyone catch the game last night?

  5. An aside, can we talk about Pierce and the coaching staff's adjustments to get from 145 to 96 points !

  6. I was openly against Trae Young when he was drafted and into his first season. I wanted Doncic and while I think he may be an MVP before too long, Trae was brilliant last night. I don’t watch the Hawks often, but I did last night and I was impressed! I know it’s a single game against bad team, but Trae was dominant. He’s a special player and I was totally wrong about him. My dinner for Christmas is some southern fried crow!

  8. John Collins "We are not a joke!" Y'all the young guys are getting confident! Btw, this is no longer Trae Young and the Hawks. It's just the Hawks.

  9. I disagree. The guy just flat out makes a difference on the court. With so many options now he's not getting the touches he did last year but he still puts his stamp on the game. His plus/minus were +21, +15 (game high), 0 (only other starter with 0 was Trae. Rest were minus). Plus/minus obviously doesn't mean everything but I still think he's a high impact player.

  13. I'm honestly not excited about 2-0. I'm excited about team depth. About 12 legit NBA players. I'm excited about Trae's continued evolution. I'm excited about Cam and Hunter becoming lock down defenders. I'm excited about having multiple 3pt shooters. I'm excited about roster flexibility I'm excited about enormous spacing I'm excited about Trae hustling on defense

  18. Did Steve Nash have anything to say about that phantom foul call Kyrie got on Hunter? He was literally trying to initiate contact while Hunter was leaning back like Neo in the Matrix. Kyrie still got the foul call. Was that basketball???

  23. “I’ve got two turntables. But that’s all. I swear!” Tidbits Time! Last week’s storming of State Farm Arena remains fresh in the minds of many a Hawk fan. Wins at turns by the Cavaliers, Knicks and Hornets, much like Atlanta’s win at Brooklyn, furthered confirmation that major corners were being turned in the NBA East. But only Charlotte, who fell below .500 yesterday, still has reason to feel that way. And at least until tonight, we’re back to looking down at all three of them. After beating Atlanta, New York went home and enjoyed an even bigger margin of victory versus U

  26. Copy this from a Brooklyn post Crazy win Gotta work out some flaws, figure things out as the season goes. That Hawks team though is, IMO, the 2nd or 3rd best team in the entire conference. Or definitely top 4. They’re THAT good. Better than Philly/Boston/Toronto. Right on par with Milwaukee and Miami and Brooklyn IMO. So understandable that it was that close

  27. You said it, SPANX Lady! This Just In: The Lions have given up yet another touchdown. While it’s not the best time to issue hugs to unsuspecting strangers, if you come across a Detroit Sports fan, offer ‘em an air-hug, or a fist pump or something. If you’re aged 30 or below, you likely don’t recall the last time the Lions won an NFL playoff game. Matthew Stafford will soon join Barry Sanders, Herman Moore and Calvin Johnson on the At Least You Tried Ring of Honor. Last place in the AL Central, and dead-last-by-a-mile in the NHL, respectively, the Tigers and Red Wings

  30. “HEY, PAL! RESPECT THE FLAG!” In the Capitol building in our District of Columbia, a United States Senator laid on the floor of the Senate chamber, unsure if this day would be his final one alive. He was swiftly losing consciousness, and his eyesight. He was being blinded by his own blood. The perpetrator of his assault: one Democratic congressman from the great state of South Carolina, armed with a thick, gold-tipped cane. Amidst an iconic, nearly 60-year-old Federal building constructed with incomparably cheap and skilled slave labor, in a new cameral wing built mu

  32. “SHAKE WEIGHT, ELFRID! SHAKE WEIGHT!” An interminable, arduous offseason was coming to an end. Now, at long last, it was time for Santa to show up and show out. I had been not-naughty for as long as anyone could reasonably ask of a seven-year-old. And I put in the work, too – folded my hands all day in class, raising them only when prompted before bodying questions about proper fractions and American Revolutionary history. Straight-As on the report card if you ignored Phys. Ed. completely. I even cleaned my room and helped put away groceries on weekends! I was as much of a sai

  34. Cam had timely buckets. All of his makes came in the 4th quarter. And his defense on KD and Irving was outstanding. He really frustrated KD coming down the stretch.

  35. You silly goose. They now will take this game and see how inefficient Trae Young was and say he can't score efficiently without the free throws.

  41. I bet $20 on the Heat to win last night yet was unsure if we’d beat the Bulls. I’d appreciate it if the entire Hawksquawk Collective gave me a virtual open handed pimp slap with the powder. Or hell I’d accept a real life slap if you’re near West Atlanta. I too thought I was convinced Trae couldn’t make winning impact team plays. If he out this bih saving loose balls (and making corner threes off em) and getting deflections whilst dropping a casual 37 I don’t even know what the f&@k to do. Seeing the vets willfully accept their bench roles when everyone’s healthy is just outsta
