  3. When I watch what both can do Physically, I just see more it with Cam. That's all. Not that Cam is Lebron. But I think he's closer than Hunter. I look forward to Hunter proving me wrong.
  4. Maybe that's why I'm not so hot on Hunter. I watched some of those Slow paced games at UVA and said.. this is worst than Princeton. He just seems like a technician but not a guy who can dominate a game. I agree with Supes, he was a reach but I wonder if he wanted us for the Pace or the Money?
  5. I think he's going to struggle a bit early but by midseason he will pick it up. I don't look for great jumps in his defense. That is rare. However, I think that Pierce will develop schemes to try to hid him and Collins.
  6. IF you have a Lambo, there aught to be an Italian guy of German decent that shows up every Saturday to wipe it down and spray it with Alcantara Cleaner.
  7. As I look at the matchups, the most intriguing of them is Collins vs. Millsap. The thing is like the big brother/little brother analogy.. Millsap's defense would stifle Collins. I think he'd reduced Collins from 20/10 to 12/6. I don't know how effective Trae would be either. But the place where this team could be better is bench. Bench with names like Chandler, Parker, Crabbe, and Reddish may go further than Thabo, Pero, Scott and Lil Goldie. But then again, Bud is coaching.
  8. Hazer, you are being a hypocrite. When I came back to Squawk a few weeks ago, there was nothing. I mean, it was like 3-4 days of no new topics. Since the on-set of my series posting, you have starting complaining. I made a series post about John Collins. It is the least viewed and responded to post on the series. Hazer, you didn't even post in that thread. There are copy cat series as well. People would be more apt to talk about Rumeal Robinson than these Hawks because in essence, we don't know anything about these Hawks. So for your person off the street. Do you think a new poster would rather come to a board and read a post from last Friday or come to a board where people are talking about the Hawks everyday? IMO, Hawksquawk should be the epicenter for ALL things Hawks. Not just a news outlet with no news. You can go to the AJC if that's what you want. Back to your tantrum.

  10. I think Korver was the key to making that team work... so when they swept the Leg, all of our hopes went down. No Thabo killed our Depth and losing DMC was just the final straw that broke our back.
  11. Thabo wouldn't have gotten beaten by those NY Policemen & Dellavedova didn't Cobra Kai Sweep the Leg on Kyle Korver in Game 1 of the 2015 ECF. & DMC wouldn't have hurt his knee in the ECF. Could the Hawks been able to Overcome Lebron and the Refs??
  12. The Blatant Disrespect that Mookie gets. Best defensive PGs in NBA History... Mookie is not mentioned.
  13. Who would you rather have on your college team... UM's Glenn Rice or Davidson's Steph Curry?
  14. The answer is that Seattle made it to the championship. Loss to Jordan's Bulls in what.. 4. However, I disagree with the notion that Payton's size made a great difference on defense.

Mookie is better in Steals, Blocks. And even Turnovers. And there's only a slight advantage in PPG and APG on the offensive side. All this while Payton played more minutes than Mookie Point is.. Either Payton has been terribly overrated or Mookie terribly underrated.
  15. The one problem... was his size. He was just at pro size for the time. He also had great stats. All that freedom translated to over 50% from the field.
