  1. Don't forget we have Lamar Patterson working with our coaches as the next Demarre, Baze, THJr. I love having a player development program that produces results!!

    DeMarre Carroll

    I agree. I think he has a better skill set than Bowen did. However, Bowen became an integral part of the Spurs championship runs by doing all the non glamorous stuff, mainly guarding the other teams best perimeter players and hitting timely corner 3s. DeMarre does the same for us. However, the national media and audience are sleeping on him. They don't realize how much of a glue guy he is for us. When they see him play on the playoffs, they will start respecting him like they did Bruce Bowen.

    DeMarre Carroll

    He's our Bruce Bowen. People just haven't recognized it yet. That will happen in the playoffs.
  4. I think Ferry and Bud will let Teague go to Milwaukee and attempt to bring in Jennings at a great price. Ferry and Bud have talked about wanting competitors in the past. That's what Jennings is. He has that fire in him. Teague seems too casual for our GM and coach's liking. Jennings is much more of a pure point guard with the competitive spirit in him. He was playing with garbage in Milwaukee and was able to take the Hawks to 7 games in 2010. There were a couple of games where he literally took over. I think you put him in the right system with better talent and his game flourishes.
  5. How are we not sure that Horfords "request to play PF" was really him requesting Josh Smith be traded? That he couldn't directly express his frustration about Josh so this was the politically correct way to say it. Perhaps Ferry and management know that he doesn't mind playing center on a team that plays the right way. and that is why they went out and got Millsap. A true center like Bynum (if healthy) would just be icing on the cake.
  6. I was going to say I prefer Iggy to Smith because he's probably a better FT shooter (we would lose many close games if we have both Josh and Dwight out there together at the end of games), but his career numbers at the charity stripe are taking the same route as Josh's. yikes!!
  7. If we strike out with Howard, any way we can keep Horford, resign Smoove, Zaza and then sign Harden and CP3?
  8. Yeah, but we can offer young talent (Teauge), expirings (any of the guys from the Nets trade-I believe they can be traded again, its just signed free agents that you can't trade immediately...correct me if i'm wrong), and draft picks (I don't believe Lakers have any left after the Nash trade) in addition to Smoove. And if we go thru Houston, perhaps they have a better chance of convincing Smoove to resign there than they do of Bynum.
  9. I think/hope Ferry is offering a package centered around Josh Smith. Yeah yeah, I know that we feel we need to have Smith here in order for Dwight to resign with us, but hear me out. Since Dwight hasn't agreed to resign with us (with his buddy Smoove here already) and since Smith isn't impressed with Ferry's moves so far (http://blogs.ajc.com/hawks/2012/07/09/atlanta-hawks-danny-ferry-tries-to-ease-josh-smiths-concerns/) , there's no way I'm trading Al Horford for a one year rental of Dwight. But I would trade Josh Smith for that 1 year rental. If Dwight doesn't resign with us, then its the same as Smith leaving at the end of next year, but we actually get a buzz at Phillips/Atlanta for a year. And we still have Horford to build around (who is a leader, a 2 time AllStar and someone that I would much rather build around than JSmoove).Also, while its great to play with your buddies, winning is more important. The combo of Howard-Horford is a better fit than Howard-Smith and will lead to more wins. At the end of the season, with Dwight's preferred destination-Brooklyn-out of the equation, we have Dwight's bird rights and a possibility of adding CP3 to the mix. A big 3 of Dwight-Al-CP3 would be lethal. Also, I'm sure Ferry would be working all season long at changing our front office perception around the league and making us more respectable as a franchise. These things lead me to believe that we'd have a great shot at resigning Dwight. Also, I believe I read (somewhere on here) that when Dwight was asked about 5 guys he'd like to play with, Smoove was not on the list but Anthony Morrow was. Well, Morrow is here in Atlanta and we have that in our pockets to appease Dwight's desire to play with a buddy. I'm not sure on the specifics of how we could do this, but I sure hope Ferry is exploring it. If Orlando isn't directly interested in Smoove for a year (where they can see if he can be the man to build around or let him go for capspace at the end of the year) then maybe we can go thru Houston. I think Houston was interested in Smoove before.
  10. I'll be in 209, section B. It's angry bird season....let's do this damn thang!

    Still Want Melo?

    <br /><br /><br /> give them the picks. just make sure they're top 20 or so protected every year!
  12. <br /><br /><br /> I remember penny dribbling the ball off his foot and it going out of bounds in that crazy stretch. speaking of overcoming large deficits, the t mac 13(?) points in the last min (?) comes to mind.
  13. <br /><br /><br /> Jamal's trade value will never be higher. I am not confident that he can duplicate his numbers from last year. I think he was a perfect fit for Woody's Iso heavy system but don't see him being as successful in LD's motion offense. Granted I don't know much about the new offense, I just think Jamal's a more effective player when he can dominate the ball, even more so than Joe. That's why I would be looking to trade him now. His $10 mil expiring contract plus his 6th man of the year season make him a valuable commodity right now. If he struggles at the beg. of the season, his value only decreases. I really like the dude as a person and as a 1 on 1 player but I think he's gotta be traded this off season.
  14. Bruce--I hope you have Sund working on getting CP3 to the ATL!!!
  15. JJ's a** better be on the phone w/ CP3 recruiting him right now!!!! CP3 to JSmoove would be a lot of fun to watch, but I agree, I think Smoove will have to be included in the deal to make it work (since Al is still on his rookie deal). Either way, CP3 will make us a serious contender in the east. Get it done Sund!
