  1. Yep, it was down for me too.
  2. If you can instruct me on how to negate my original "Trade" vote, I'll be glad to enter in Onyeka Okongwu. Thanks.
  3. I've been a non-profit fundraising professional for more than 30 years (Children's Healthcare in Atlanta, Boys & Girls Clubs of Atlanta, and Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Reinhardt University, etc.). When someone makes a donation, they can get a income tax reduction equal to their tax bracket. For example, someone like Trae, who will be in the highest tax bracket, if he donates $10,000, that will only "cost" him about $6,500. He still made a donation of $6,500 any way you cut it. There are other conditions (you can only use charitable deductions up to 50% of your gross income, et
  4. Getting a CPAP in a couple weeks after years of being too lazy and too macho to bother. Should have considered my wife's feelings sooner ...and my life.
  5. Being at the game last night, here are a few observations my son and I have ... Len was unconvincing as a starting caliber center. Hands of stone, no ability to get above the rim (which caused missed rebounds, despite the dozen or so he got which were mainly his own misses it seemed), no feel around the rim causing many missed easy shots, seemingly lost on defense. Jones and Bruno were really no better. How Bruno could be so ineffective on defense was confusing. Lots of quickness and energy, but just scattered around the court without a clue. He may just be raw and needs a LOT more t
  6. Travis Schlenck is at the game. Talked with him a minute and thanked him for his efforts thus far. Told him about Hawksquawk and he said they are aware of it and appreciate it.
  7. Good seats! Let the rowdy fun begin. (Don't worry...I'll be classy for the ATL).
  8. I kinda' figured this would be a game where LP played the second string guys to see who he wanted to give minutes to during the season, so I knew it wouldn't be the starters. And the tickets are more reasonable during preseason ($150 each versus $300 each!) during the season.
  9. I'll be at the game tonight, along with my son. We have seats near the Hawks bench. Wearing our Hawks gear. Should be fun getting heckled by the Bulls fans!!!
  10. Back running like normal again.
  11. So ... several thoughts ... 1. If KD opts in to his GSW contract (reasonable assumption) 2. And surmising that he almost certainly won't play next season (small gamble that he might be able to return in March or April) and thus then becomes an unrestricted free agent after the season 3. Should we trade for him (since we can absorb his salary by giving back someone like Plumlee or Bazemore), in exchange for an asset? 4. He could stay with the GSW team rehab folks if he wants to and then resign with GSW or whomever he wants. 5. GSW gets quite a bit of monetary relief th
  12. It's how I found out the Squawk was back too. Thanks for the mention of it.
  13. I used to be very good friends with the owner of Atlanta Coca-Cola Bottling and also with some the major players at Coke through my work raising funds for non-profit organizations in Atlanta (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Children's Healthcare, Reinhardt University, etc.). We also found it difficult to get money from Coke because their answer was always "We don't want to be perceived as a 'local' company by sponsoring local organizations. We want to be seen as a national and international company, so we try to sponsor things that are bigger than just supporting Atlanta teams or organiza
  14. It's undoubtedly the Russians ...
