  1. I can't speak on the NFL or what they will do or planning to do but I have some info today: Big time info. 1. Indy is making noise. They have reached out to Atlanta for JC with no success but they have made a massive offer to Golden State if LaMelo Ball falls to #2 overall. Victor Oladipo, T.J. Warren, 2022 top 10 protected pick, and a 2021 pick swap for #2 overall and Andrew Wiggins. Considering Oladipo's stock, the value is obviously Warren and a top 10 protected pick in 2021 and pick swap. I was told that Myles Turner was never offered to GS, GS wanted him in a trade though.

  2. I really like Skal. He is someone that if he had regular rotation minutes I think he could easily be a starter level player in a season or two. We need to keep this kid and let him grow with us. He is the modern big that we really could use to soak up backup minutes at PF/C.

  4. Hawks answer to Luka = Skal Labissiere. That's setting the goal sky high, but why not. Seriously, glad to see where he's with the team right now and the report is that he's doing well. Hawks had so much room for improvement past their starting five. Hoping to see him around when the season begins in 2021 !!

  5. JC doesn't need to go anywhere. We have a superstar, a star and a solid starter at center. The other two starting positions can be upgraded if need be. But not at the cost of those three.

  6. Exactly. He pointed out the fact that they are using his name and image to get readers interested in a list that doesn't include him.

  8. I don't think a team that only won 20 games last year, can be drafting for fit. We fans tend to fall in love with the players that we already have, or think have potential. But if those guys aren't truly game changers, bringing in talent should always be the way to go. Having said that, I'm not a Vassell fan either. But he is probably a better fit than Bembry. And that may make Vassell a rotation guy instantly.

  9. I think he got used to KD and Russ getting all the shots. They probably told him, set screens, rebound, defend. I wanted Adams too. Besides what he does on the floor, his contract length was a selling point. OKC wanted too much though - salary relief, young player and a pick. It'll be interesting to see if they pull the trigger and trade him what they will get now. This is the one thing I love hearing about: Talking on defense will help alot.

  10. And can we be honest about something? The level of pressure in these playoffs is virtually non-existent compared to "normal" years. So color me unconvinced that some of these dudes are showing they have playoff mettle. This is basically empty gym basketball, so they're not having to deal with role-player shrinkage, home-crowd pressure, travel, or any other phenomenon that impacts playoff performance. I'm not going full-asterisk but we gotta understand this isn't the same.

  11. I don't think there is any at all. It's just something the media keeps writing as it makes sense to them although not to us. Kevin and Buddy are both 6th men types. Buddy is shooting/scoring and Kevin is shooting/playmaking. There is not much difference other than the stage of their careers at this point.

  12. Maybe they disliked playing for him but I would guess not nearly as much as Atlanta fans disliked watching their worthless, overpaid selves lay eggs and collect their checks from the sidelines.

  13. Precisely. His impact was minimized by arguing he wasn't a real winner and was selfishly just about his own numbers. Until his team started winning in the playoffs and he got his due. Until we win Trae is going to get underrated even though he is clearly a pretty big deal given the attention he has gotten for his historic numbers and the rare starting All-Star appearance as a sophomore in this truncated season.

  14. Pretty sure these types of voters would have crapped on Jordan after the Bulls failed to get out of the first round of the playoffs his first 3 seasons. Playoff success is a necessary part of an NBA legacy.

  16. I was told about 3 more teams with massive moves but they are on the do not tell list. Hopefully, when the draft comes, I will get more information.

  17. I hate to say it but Blank isn’t as good of an owner as I believed he was . That’s not to say he doesn’t want to win but he has built a buddy buddy relationship in the front office rather than a let’s get shit done around here mentality. Ressler on the other hand may not be known as a top nba owner but he’s for sure putting pressure on Schlenk on down to get the ship right. Quinn is actually worse than Mike Smith and I didn’t think that was possible

  19. Hunter is not a 4, will not be a 4. He will be a 3 for us. The question you should be asking is do you prefer Ant/Cam at the 2 / 3 or do you prefer Cam/Hunter at the 2/3. Huerter will be off the bench by the end of the year. Based solely on length and ability to defend next to Trae, you want Cam/Hunter on the floor. Offense is not our problem. That is only going to get better. I'm sorry but this is not as strong a draft as the last few years. Hunter > Edwards. He is a better 3 point shooter and a better defender. You need a few things right now. You need a long term answer as the bac

  20. They are more open than they are in the regular season as they play with LeBron a lot more in the playoffs. We seen this story when we played Cleveland. LeBron playing a lot of minutes changes how you defend the others.

  22. LP has been great developing our players. If we don't make the playoffs this year he's probably on the hot seat. I'm cool with giving him a full term (4 years) before making any decisions to retain or move from Pierce. Were still on track in Schlenk's timeline. Shaking things up too early & making major changes will lessen the Hawks routine/structure. As younger players benefit from consistency, this won't bode well for their development.

  24. Dedmon was more massive for us than Teague was. Dedmon was critical for us. Having him and Capela should solve 99.99% of our center issues last year.

  26. That is like a sign of the apocalypse for a basketball player where you are hanging out with reality TV (insert nicer word than initially comes to mind)s rather than spending key time with your teammates for the first time in months.

  28. I could kiss you for posting this. Agree on all counts. This may both please and dismay you. I hear your concerns but you'd be in the minority on taking Capela over Embiid. I think a right-coached Embiid dwarfs Capela in terms of impact. When I say "right-coached" I'm thinking him being in shape and not floating on the perimeter like a tall-a**, fat-a** guard.

  31. It may have been the most ridiculous play ever. The thing is i can only assume that Dallas expected the Falcons to play it that stupidly. Otherwise it's the easiest kick possible to field if you don't sit there and stare at it.

  34. Lost my voice yelling at the TV!.... ....it’s truly embarrassing to be a falcons fan right now. i can actually handle the hawks losing games better than the falcons. Hawks atleast has the young excuse. This falcons team should not be losing games like this.

  35. I know this is a basketball forum but I have to ask Supes this question...When are the Falcons going to fire dumb azz Dan Quinn??? He truly is the dumbest coach in all of sports! Why does Atlanta love bum coaches?

  36. LP still has everything to prove. I’m just not bashing him for coaching a bad roster or for things he doesn’t control. If the team flops next year, it is hard to see a scenario where he shouldn’t be blamed. But I’m not bashing him for lineups starting Damian Jones, Jabari Parker, etc. Had some garbage vets last year.

  39. There is a good chance that isn't going to be a 1st rounder. I'm not sure OKC makes the playoffs as they look to be heading toward a rebuild. Thunder Hawks (protected top 14) PICK MAY OR MAY NOT TRANSFER DEPENDING ON THUNDER DRAFT POSITION Traded • Dennis Schröder • Mike Muscala in a 3-team trade with 76ers, Thunder for • Carmelo Anthony • Justin Anderson • draft pick(s) (2022 first round pick, protected top 14 in 2022, else 2024 second
