  2. “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

  3. 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

  5. Thank you for being the leader and man you are. We live in a world where tough decisions have to be made. Regardless, thank you for being the coach of my Atlanta Hawks. Keep your head up and continue to prepare for your next head coaching gig.

  6. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  18. 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!

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  31. Kg takeaways.... 1. Team needs time and it was unrealistic to think otherwise. 2. No bubble set us back, significantly so when compared to bubble teams. 3. Whether we went 0-4 or 4-0 the same ol', lame ol' fire-CLP stuff was gonna spew outta the same dudes.

  33. Those damn narratives. I was commenting to an old classmate, who is a season ticket holder, on how good we did this offseason and how we will make some noise next year. This guy was like "we still cant play defense, I guess we will just try to outscore everyone." When I told him about the defensive additions he was like "well the coaching sucks so it wont matter anyway." When I said coach finally has a good, deep roster, he says "Yeah that's what we thought last year, but look at us and look at Dallas" (here is where I knew it took a dive) He then goes right to the narrat

  39. Can someone direct me to the 'Ask Supes' thread? Ya know, the one where we discuss possible roster moves, news, etc. Somehow I got directed to another tired, useless 'fire the coach' thread.
