  1. BTW - may not be important again, but there is a very convenient parking place right on 10th street across 75/85 under the tall building on the corner on the south side of the street. I parked there for a lot of Dream games I've attended - very convenient and cheaper than on campus parking. Never full when I went. The sign says parking is free for patrons of the Chinese restaurant but I don't know if it is still in business. If so, one could dinner and free parking.
  2. BTW - there is yet one more possible home for the Dream in the future albeit a few years out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GSU_Sports_Arena "In February 2018, The Signal reported plans of a 200,000 square foot (18,580 m2) convocation center included in the Georgia state government's 2019 fiscal year budget. If approved, the new arena would be located north of Georgia State Stadium on the corner of Fulton Street and Capitol Avenue. The new arena is planned to cost $80 million, with $60 million coming from state funding and the remainder from private funding. The new arena is planned
  3. Well, longer thread than I thought it would be.
  4. True to Atlanta......
  5. And now we have the real answer. Former Conn. Sun GM Chris Sienko (who stole J. Thomas and Bentley from us while with the Sun.)
  6. We now have an answer - and the answer is "No one knows" at least Ms. Collen doesn't know. It was the first question asked in this excellent interview. It does seem as though she will have a lot of say as to who is on the roster, and w/o a FRP this season, scouting draft picks is probably not a super important issue. And the Dream have typically not been a destination that excites FA's so GM job may be a bit more administrative than anything. (BTW - Chris Sienko former Sun GM ran the job search for HC, so he is out there as a resource apparently.) https://www.fanragsports.com/
  7. I am not super excited about this, but then I was a Cooper fan. Cooper did better at building the roster than getting wins I guess. Big question, not addressed in the press release is who is the GM or player personnel boss? Wenzel was a college athletic department administrator so it doesn't seem she has the background to evaluate talent. Team owners generally don't do well in that department either. Since the Dream don't have a No. 1 pick this year, the draft doesn't matter much for now. However, Free Agency comes up soon and the question is who to sign? Maybe that doesn't matter much
  8. Google Col. Klink. "Hogan's Heroes." The answer will appear before your eyes.
  9. Fortunately for Dennis, he can check with Bud, Mike Scott, Thabo, and Pero for the names of some good lawyers. At least the Hawks are undefeated in court. They keep this up and they can match the UGA Bulldogs for arrests.
  10. Yeah - trading Angel now has been likened to the Fever trading Catchings before 2012. Not sure I agree with that, I don't think she is going anywhere either. But stranger things have happened. The touchy situation is whether they would core her when Hayes contract expires (apparently at the end of next season.) Angel shows every sign of wanting to live in Atlanta - would she leave? It is not a slam dunk that she will play next year either. I suspect the first part of the new coaches job will be to convince her to do so (without convincing Angel that she will be in charge.)
  11. Great analysis, and thanks for the shout out. I hope you don't mind I posted it all on rebkel, with a link to here. I am pretty much in the glass half empty stage now. Cooper had his shortcomings, but he did rebuild a roster in just 2 years, after the Angela Taylor era ended. Some of Cooper's success does belong to her for getting us Dantas and eventually Holmes via the Erika trade. Speaking of Dantas, she has only completed 3 seasons in the WNBA so my thought is she would be a reserved player for one more season and then a Restricted FA. The bigger question might be how often she ac
  12. I went to Joe Johnson's first game after he was traded and I don't remember any tribute, though many fans including me did give him a warm welcome. However, the honoring of past players has sort of become a thing in the past few years. I suspect they won't honor Dwight. He was here for a year and his departure was controversial. Team might rather people forgot about all that.
  13. With all those lotto picks it looks like the Hornets are Exhibit A for why tanking doesn't always work.
  14. This upgrade looks awesome. I especially like the tags that are attached to topics so you can get an idea of what they are about. Outstanding work - thanks for all the effort put in.
