  1. While we don’t have a time machine, we do have a sense of how people performed relative to their contemporary peers. Lou and Pete made 8 All-Star teams while in Hawks uniforms and both made All-NBA teams. Smitty and Mookie made 2 All-Star teams as Hawks (and for their careers) and neither was All-NBA either for the Hawks or elsewhere. Mookie did make some Defense teams to his credit. Petit and Hagan are our only Hawks pair that were contenders so the lack of contender status doesn’t do much to differentiate any of these teams — unless Trae and Bogi can take us there!
  2. I'm guessing "no" but I'd like to be pleasantly surprised with you.

    Good man! It's an exciting time with the playoffs.
  4. I think that is totally a fair approach but wanted to see if someone didn't just rule the older guys out and actually evaluated the case for each pairing with them included.
  5. I'm curious to hear from the Mookie/Smitty voters if they are just deciding to ignore Lou Hudson/Pete Maravich or if they looked at them and found them wanting in comparison. I get ignoring them for being from another era but have a hard time seeing the arguments for the Sparty and inspiration for Pearl Jam's best album beating out the HOFers if you are legit weighing them against each other. IMO, Hudson is the best player of the 4 and then Maravich as a Hawk stands up very well against either of the other two. Pete Maravich 24.3 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 5.6 apg Mookie 14.9 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 6.7
  6. The funny thing is that the size of the bubble is supposed to represent the number of games lost due to injury so while Orlando is an extreme outlier for the high number of games lost the size of their bubble would say that the impact hasn't been that great because those guys were kind of hot garbage anyway.
  7. I hope to be out of the running ASAP.
  8. If you are including Lou and Pistol (Lou being the better player), I'd have to go with them even though I didn't see them live. Both are HOFers and 5 or 6x All-Stars. Great balance with two studs (even though I content Maravich is overrated). For the modern players, Mookie/Smitty is my pick with Trae/Bogi having definite potential to surpass them. Heck, I am still excited about Cam long-term and hope we can see a Trae/Cam pair on a future version of this list.

    Guess we need to start getting creative:
  10. I don't take anything for granted but just don't see them as so much tougher than the Suns or Trail Blazers, etc.
  11. Why is Washington being held out as so incredible here? They are 3-3 in their last 6 games. Since Westbrook started going bananas on March 13, they are 16-14. They are very beatable even if they are no longer easily beaten.
  12. Exactly my reaction as well. The idea that we would sit him to play only Gallo and Solo off the bench is kind of crazy.
  13. I'd always rather beat the Celtics but I do think their playoff experience is something I don't like and I can already hear all the excuses about how this didn't really count for them. At this point, I'm not worried about who we face in the first round and more am focused on us finishing in the top 6 and whether we can get homecourt. I'll be pumped to see us face any of the Knicks, Heat, Celtics, etc. if that happens.
  14. Thing of f———— beauty! Can’t remember a game where our top 6 scorers were all within 2-4 points of each other. Just contributions up and down the roster to issue a beat down. What a game!
