  1. The world`s newest Hawks fan was just born this evening at 8:18pm. Little Elizabeth has already been featured in the stomach of my wife in one of the two playoff rally videos themed "True to Atlanta," where my wife said "True is the next generation of Hawks fans" while holding a sign pointing to her pregnant belly. My wife and I showed up at the hospital at 8am this morning with my wife wearing one of the Hawks playoff t-shirts. (I have photos but don`t know how to upload them here on mobile. No @Spud2Nique , not anything dirty or revealing.) Just wanted to share with y`all that the world o

  2. On August 5, 1960 My beautiful, sweet wife and I exchanger our vows. Strangely enough, after 55 years, she's still putting up with me. We have 4 children, 6 grand children and one great grand son which I hope will become a Hawks fan. I know. This is not Hawk related but, when you've been married for 50 or more years, perhaps the moderators will allow you to post something like this!

  3. You are Howard's b~!tch. Glad you aren't on this team anymore. Howard shoving you was a passing of the torch, so to speak. In one shove, he did more than you did your entire career with Atlanta. You never fought back. You never pushed back. You are all talk. I don't even care that Howard was ejected. He has set the tone for this team and I hope that they are nastier hitting the final stride of the regular season and into the playoffs. Go Hawks! Ain't scared of Boston.

  5. It's Biblically bad here! I've been very lucky that somehow my area of Houston doesn't flood but my parents and siblings are all stuck in their houses in their neighborhoods and can't get out because of flooding on entrances to neighborhoods. I've been out doing boat rescues the past 2 days trying to save people who couldn't get out. Unfortunately my family are all much farther north than me and all of our major highways and roads to get there are closed from flooding. My in-laws lost their brand new house and pretty much all of their memories from boxes that had pictures and stuff. They

  6. The Atlanta Hawks led the Washington Wizards 87-77 after the third quarter yesterday, which isn't nothing as leads go, but, in its broad outline the game still had the feel of one whose outcome could go either way. The Hawks looked sharper, sure, but the Wizards had won the second quarter and gotten as close as three points in the third, and a tight, exciting, competitive finish between two of the East's best teams seemed plausible. Then each member of the Hawks grew four extra limbs and torrents of lava erupted from their roaring mouths and a pit opened up at midcourt and the Wizards f

  7. I've been on the Squawk 10 years. Which is coincidental considering what's going on with me and my family right now... The Squawk is my home and I feel like you guys are my family. Without going into detail, I'd just ask you to say a sincere prayer for me and my family - and if that isn't your thing, just keep me in your thoughts. Thanks guys.

  10. think about it..... if BOSS didn't man up and bust in for that rebound and putback, we lose the game by one point and Pierce is again the hero with the game winning 3. We go back to Washington and most likely don't come out of there with a win. Especially with the crowd going nuts over Wall's resurrection and Pierce's heroics. But all that's not going to happen, because of one man's determination to NOT let it happen. THANK YOU BOSS!!!!!!!!!

  13. To those of you who helped out with donations to support Hawksquawk. It was certainly a VERY much appreciated thing and I didn't want you all to think it was unnoticed. Also all of the very kind words of support helped out quite a bit. As some of you may know, I've been involved in an admin capacity with Hawksquawk for over 12 years now and for the most part there hasn't been many days where I haven't gotten on Hawksquawk either as a fan or as a moderator all that time. Dealing with the frustrations of being a fan, a mod, and an admin (functionality of the site) day in and day out for such a l

  16. Forgot to mention that he said the Hawks brass felt they needed to take a risk on Dwight. They feel if they can resurrect his career other big name free agents will take notice and start taking the Hawks seriously. Right now the Hawks can't even get to the table. I understand why they did this, and I've been saying all off season the Hawks need to take risk.

  17. Not sure why everyone is so upset. We've had the same exact team for 5 years now. You all are upset that we didn't maintain the status quo? We obviously weren't going to win anything as constructed. Kudos to Bud for shaking it up a bit. We addressed our biggest weakness, rebounding. Horford has gotten worse over the years and now has turned into a spot up jumpshooter. No thanks to 30M/year for that. Hello JJ contract all over again. He ain't getting any better and he sucked in the playoffs. Howard is the better player, better defender and will tremendously improve our

  21. “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

  22. 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

  23. I swear it seems like I never see any of the current or even past players talk about winning a championship in Atlanta. Al, Millsap, Korver, etc. always sound so passive. Dennis seems more concerned about having a starting position. It's about time a Hawks player say they want to win a championship. You see superstars like Klay talk about if they don't win a championship it's a failure, stars like LeBron, Wade, and many more got that alpha attitude. I hope this new attitude spreads all over the team.

  24. Hi everybody, it's been long time since I was here last time. I am from Europe and I watched Malcolm a lot last couple of years. And let mi tell you: You got THE STEAL! This may be the best sign Bud ever did. By far. I don't have words to express how good this guy is. Someone said beast. Well, he is no beast, but I never saw US player in Europe so talented and smooth like him. First, he is great team player, true point guard, great passer (don't let 6 assists per game fool you, in Europe they count them differently), his court vision is incredible, and his shooting

  25. DEMARRE CARROLL CONTRIBUTOR It wasn’t that long ago that I was really struggling to make it in the NBA. Early in my career, I would only get spot minutes on different teams. Being in that situation, scared of making a mistake that would cost me my job, I would always play tight and nervous. I didn’t feel like I had the ability to be myself on the floor. But when I came to Atlanta, things started changing for me. It didn’t take me long to find a role with the Hawks. Once I made it into the starting lineup, it didn’t take long — only a couple of games — to begin playing the aggressive style

  26. Dwight Howard this year has been playing great but remains seen as a "Glorified Role Player" by some people because he has been averaging a "measly" 16 PPG. And about how he is just a glue guy who does the dirty work( he does, but I think he is more than that) So I did a quick google search and saw that he has been playing 28 minutes a game so far this season. A good decision since we have a strong bench and look to make a post season run. But if you do the math and calculate his current numbers by the amount of minutes he played in his first year in Houston (33.7 I chose this because eve

  27. Hello to every Hawks Fan and every member of this forum !! :) I am a Hawks fan from Germany. My love for the Hawks grew 2013, when Dennis was drafted. I always was a big fan of Schröder, since i first saw him play i my hometown gym against some of my old teammates. At this time he played in the third german league. I always liked his style of play and his confidence and believed he can be a big time player. Since he was drafted by the hawks i watched nearly every game of atlanta and really became a Die Hard Atlanta Hawks Fan!! This team really got me excited! I still watch every ga

  30. 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

  32. This is a warning! We will not tolerate transphobia on this site. Al Horford made the decision to become Alice and much like we asked everyone to do when@kg01 made the same decision, we expect everyone to use the proper pronoun while refering to each as "her" and not "he".

  34. I've previously said that I don't think Tim's FG% is sustainable but that it has been fantastic so far this season. Let me break it down a little with some praise both for his accomplishments that will be a challenge to sustain and for some that I hope signal improvements that will continue to pay dividends for THJr: #1 - Tim Is Taking the Ball to the Hole A Lot More (Sustainable improvement) According to basketball reference, Tim has increased his shots at the rim by roughly 50% this season. Tim's career average of shots taken from 0-3 feet from the basket was roughly 20.5% coming

  35. Just so you are all aware, our very own Hawksfanatic, aka Robert Paulson , has decided to hang up his Chuck Taylor's and shortie shorts. He's had a great run here at Hawksquawk, helpinig to educate many of us on the cap... even those of us who still struggle to get it after all these years. Without getting into why he's deciding to leave I just wanted to say thank you to him and best of luck and we'll continue to follow your articles on Peachtree Hoops. Here's to Hawksfanatic, one of only a few who've actually gotten an emoticon to represent them on Hawksquawk. PS - yes he

  37. On a more serious note, Dolfan donates a ton of time to this site and people need to show him the courtesy of not just running roughshod over the parameters that he gives. You just add work to his already loaded plate and basically give him the finger by repeatedly posting threads in the wrong place, etc. Not that everyone does this all the time, but it has been running rampant lately. Give him some help by putting a few second thought in before jumping into a hypothetical trade or the 5th thread on the same topic on the homecourt board.

  41. I'm trying to wrap my head around people's reactions. Fact 1: There are 46 games left in the regular season now. Fact 2: Korver lost his starting role to Thabo Sefalosha. Fact 3: Korver is a free agent at season's end. So if I am understanding this correctly, we just traded 46 games of a backup 3 point specialist, for a 1st round pick in 2019 that could be anywhere from 16-30 (probably), while clearing up around 2 million in salary and creating more playing time for Bembry, Hardaway and Prince? Am I missing something? Isn't this kind of a steal? Cleveland is giving us $

Bud knows basketball. That's why he's the coach. Bud knows talent.... that's why Leonard is in San Antonio.. that's why Parker is in San Antonio.. that's why Korver, Paul, and Dennis is here. Now, he has brought in a Hall of Fame quality Center. 3 time defensive player of the year... a guy who used to dominate us.. but represents Bud biggest rebuilding project to date.
