    GOODBYE THJ!

    So glad we have Hawks University so we can continue to develop players for other NBA teams to overpay for. At least we have Baze!
  2. At least we have Kent Bazemore on a reasonable deal
  3. I am in no way affiliated with the Hawks but over at Hawksshop.com they are having a heck of a summer clearance deal. I got an Adidas polo for $20. Though everyone on here would like to know.
  4. I appreciate the play of Howard but you can't tell me this team is better. The Howard move was out of desperation. They didn't get better with that move imo. The record and eye test shows that.
  5. If you are expecting a blockbuster from this front office you will are in for a let down. They have really done nothing to improve this team since Carol left. If they are chasing the Cavs, they end up like every SEC school chasing Nick Saban and firing coaches to try and catch lightning in a bottle.
  6. And yet people point to analytics that say he is a great +/- player. When I watch him play he just isn't moving well. He can't get loose from his defender. To me he is a great option coming off the bench against other backup players.
  7. I brought this up on Twitter and got crushed. Watching him play it's clear that he has lost a step. The argument the other way is that he can't create for himself and playing with the starters gets him shot opportunities. Yes, he is shooting 47% (or whatever after last night) but as the year goes on if his shooting % falls again I just can't see him not coming off the bench.
  8. I think he is an easy target. Even in his inside the NBA 'intervention' he just sort of takes the criticism. This could be a huge storyline this season if he dominates and hits his free throws. I'm excited to see what happens.
  9. Just interesting to read another perspective on the moves. I have enjoyed all of the Hawks talk on the web over the past few days. I hope it's a sign of more to come this season.
  10. Celtics' persistence pays off with signing of Horford (2:00) Now that the free-agency whirlwind has calmed, we can sit back and ask: So, um, what exactly did the Atlanta Hawks do? They tried to straddle two paths at once, and ultimately fell into the netherworld between them. The NBA is ripe for a tank job. Two to three years ago, almost a half-dozen teams raced to the bottom at once -- a backward sprint so crowded, one or two would become a sort of reverse Mary Decker Slaney and stumble into too many wins. Now, everyone is trying to win. The path from the playoffs to the No. 2 p

  12. Does Dwight do the speech to the crowd before the home opener or does Paul?
  13. Hasn't this been the most change this franchise seen in many off seasons? I think they are trying to get better but you can't just do it over one offseason
  14. I think we have a head coach who honestly believes that when he finds a 'guy' he will do whatever to get him or get rid of him. Perfect example is the kid from Baylor, trading your starting PG for a 12 and picking a guy that was probably there at 21. In his opinion he is the smartest guy in the room.
  15. 'His jumper isn't completely beyond repair'
  16. I'm just at a loss for why as a fan I should care about cap space? Other teams make it work yet we never can? Get me talent and wins. Not more of the same
  17. So we get Horf and Baze back...
  18. So last year we trade out of the 15 spot for THJ and this year we trade Teague for the 12? Don't understand this at all
  19. This is the big move of the offseason? Teague for a 12?
  20. What makes anyone think that this coach/front office that preaches about consistency and steadiness makes a move like this?
  21. Best case scenario, they get past Boston and Cleveland implodes which has got to happen at some point. I live in Nashville and was considering driving down on Saturday to catch the game, but have decided I am not going to spend my money on Hawks first round playoff games anymore
  22. We should look at younger players coming off rookie contracts that have potential to be stars. Established stars aren't coming to play for the Hawks.
  23. If the 'peak' of this years team is the same as the team we saw last year, it could be a fun second half. Maybe Humphries can help us on the boards a little as well!
  24. Seems to be an effort issue to me. Guys just not playing motivated and then picking it up in the second half of games.
  25. Has a team ever won 60 games then failed to make the playoffs in the following season?
