  1. “Vatican just called. Il Papa wants the hookup on a case of BOLT24.” Tidbits Time! We won’t have Rudy Gobert around to spank us tonight! Dusting off the first double-digit L of the season, our Atlanta Hawks head to the Pacific Northwest. They’ll be thankful if the good sirs on the Portland Trail Blazers (10 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast and 92.9 FM in ATL, NBC Sports Northwest in PDX) don’t have another paddling in store for them. Coach Lloyd Pierce conserved some players’ energies during the front-end of last night’s back-to-back, keeping every one of his Hawks (5-6)
  2. “I’ve got two turntables. But that’s all. I swear!” Tidbits Time! Last week’s storming of State Farm Arena remains fresh in the minds of many a Hawk fan. Wins at turns by the Cavaliers, Knicks and Hornets, much like Atlanta’s win at Brooklyn, furthered confirmation that major corners were being turned in the NBA East. But only Charlotte, who fell below .500 yesterday, still has reason to feel that way. And at least until tonight, we’re back to looking down at all three of them. After beating Atlanta, New York went home and enjoyed an even bigger margin of victory versus U
  3. “I’m getting traded to the New York area? WHY???” “Baby, I’m a Starbury!” Georgia Tech’s one-and-doner couldn’t believe his fortune as he slapped on his purple-billed, white and green, exclusive NBA-issue baseball cap. Thanks to the 1996 NBA lottery and draft, Stephon Marbury was about to pair up with one of the NBA’s hottest young forwards in Glenn Robinson. What a combo! Whoops! Scratch that, Steph. It’s Ray Allen that Milwaukee really wants. But, guess what? You’re getting an even hotter, younger talent to grow with, in Kevin Garnett! Coming together for iconic magazin
  4. “Whoo! Good Golly, Mister Molly! You sure like to ball!” Kuester’s Revenge! Tracy McGrady, Tayshaun Prince, Chris Wilcox, Austin Daye were among the players fashioning a mutiny against their coach. Even withering legends Rip Hamilton and Ben Wallace were in on the boycott, petitioning for an overthrow of Detroit Pistons coach John Kuester. His days were already numbered as the team piled on the losses, but by February 2011, his increasingly DNP-CD’d players sought to grease the skids by skipping shootaround and showing up to practice late. T-Mac complained of a “headache”
  5. Back before Trae, LP, and John, there was… Tidbits! The Atlanta Hawks hosted three disappointing games over the prior seven days against fellow non-Bubble teams, but all were consecutive fourth-games-in-six-nights. After a couple days off to reset, practice, and engage in some intriguing film sessions, will the Hawks use their rest advantage to pay back the Charlotte Hornets (CORRECTION: 7:00 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast, 92.9 FM in ATL)? The Hornets (4-5) return home triumphantly after slow-boiling the Pelicans in a primetime Big Ball Brother bash last night in N’A
  6. “We’re the Atlanta Hawks. We are not a joke!” Let’s give some flowers to LaVar Ball, shall we? We are now well into our third week of rusty NBA basketball, and LaMelo Ball has yet to be named a starter in a Charlotte Hornets game. Playing ahead of the 6-foot-7, 19-year-old Chino Hills sensation on the Charlotte Hornets? A 6-foot-1 point guard, living off his breakout from last season, who is draining just 18.8 percent of his two-point looks. And a 6-foot-1 shoot-first guard, the established consolation for 2019’s loss of Kemba Walker, who is statistically and eye-test-ically a
  7. “SHAKE WEIGHT, ELFRID! SHAKE WEIGHT!” An interminable, arduous offseason was coming to an end. Now, at long last, it was time for Santa to show up and show out. I had been not-naughty for as long as anyone could reasonably ask of a seven-year-old. And I put in the work, too – folded my hands all day in class, raising them only when prompted before bodying questions about proper fractions and American Revolutionary history. Straight-As on the report card if you ignored Phys. Ed. completely. I even cleaned my room and helped put away groceries on weekends! I was as much of a sai
  8. Full Contact Tag Team Twister gets ROUGH! Let’s not get ahead of ourselves! The Cleveland Cavaliers, already in town and watching Atlanta cut down the Nets in Brooklyn last night, have a nice, wet blanket they’d like to remove from their shoulders and drape around the Hawks tonight (7:30 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast and 92.9 FM in ATL, Fox Sports Ohio). Hear second-year Cavs coach J.B. Bickerstaff tell it: “Things are easy when things are good.” Cleveland was rockin’ and rollin’ after surprising everyone, including themselves, with a 3-0 start to the season. The winni
  9. “and it was at that moment that I thought to myself, ‘hmm… Coaching, eh? Sounds good!’” Tidbits time! Game-time particulars for the Atlanta Hawks – Brooklyn Nets rematch at Barclays, up top (7:30 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast and 92.9 FM in ATL, YES Network in NYC). The hottest offense in all of basketball (122.3 O-Rating; Luka’s Mavs topped last season at 115.9), the Hawks (3-1) are getting it done on that end even while Danilo Gallinari (out, now with a sprained ankle; #1 in O-Rating among NBA players w/ 40+ games and 20+ MPG last season) has missed most of the pas
  10. Good Vibrations! Nashty Nash and the Funky Bunch (1994) During his final seasons as a Net, toiling against middling opponents like the Atlanta Hawks, winding down from the heady days of chasing titles with Jason Kidd and Richard Jefferson, superstar Vince Carter had glimpses of his post-basketball future. After a rip-roaring dunk gets some of the few fans left at the Izod Center up on their feet, he’d peer over the media desk to see a guy who once performed such flights of fancy, Dominique Wilkins, rocking a headset while doing double-duty with the Hawks’ front office. The 8-t
  11. You said it, SPANX Lady! This Just In: The Lions have given up yet another touchdown. While it’s not the best time to issue hugs to unsuspecting strangers, if you come across a Detroit Sports fan, offer ‘em an air-hug, or a fist pump or something. If you’re aged 30 or below, you likely don’t recall the last time the Lions won an NFL playoff game. Matthew Stafford will soon join Barry Sanders, Herman Moore and Calvin Johnson on the At Least You Tried Ring of Honor. Last place in the AL Central, and dead-last-by-a-mile in the NHL, respectively, the Tigers and Red Wings
  12. Vegas says to expect the latter.
  13. “Way to stick your neck out!” I have long said, when it comes to the lackluster reception the Hawks have had around town, is that perhaps their biggest failing as a professional franchise was not arriving in Atlanta first. “crowd feels like im at a hawks game,” pot-shotted the decidedly unathletic Jared Weiss of The Athletic, the Celtics staff writer last week sharing the non-sights and non-sounds at his dear Garden ahead of a fan-free preseason game. Like many Buckhead mallgoers, Hawks fans are used to dodging occasional strays. That Atlanta stacked their remodeled hoops arena
  14. “Nice. But what does THAT have to do with anything?” The Parliament of Great Britain was obsessed with tea, and not only in the late afternoons. Desperate to save the floundering British East India Company and its stockpiles of leafy product, the Brits sought to apply a duty to tea supplies illicitly smuggled overseas into its North American colonies by the Dutch. This was in the year 1773. Taxation without representation, it turns out, was not a compelling sell for dear old John Bull. While fumbling away the Americas, England’s brand of manifest Western imperialism
  15. The question is are we moving to fast towards positionless basketball? Personally, I believe that Basketball goes through fads... like 6'9" PGs and triangle offense and so on. I think the latest fad is position-less basketball. To me, this seems like the direction we're going and I will tell you the problems I have with it. First.. why is it in style? I would say.. Golden State. Really Draymond Green. Because Green can play the 3-5.. I think that GS has taken advantage of that and created a dominant Small ball lineup amongst it's conventional lineup. Unfortunately... the fi
  16. Kent Bazemore is a very unique player. On the surface, he is one of the best players on Atlanta (4th to 5th best), giving you decent rebounding for a SF, very good if he was a SG, scores at a solid clip, runs more than anyone other Hawk at a very good speed, second to only Kyle Korver who's always been world class in that category since he's been a member of the Hawks and he has solid defensive tools. On surface, he seems like a good player for us and he actually replaces Carroll's value surface wise quite well but he's is where the film, stats and impact doesn't equal the surface level as we
  19. After our abrupt dismissal from the playoffs I've been thinking of the forty plus Hawk seasons I've seen. Comparing the game changes and all. John Drew and his close range bank shot versus Kyle Korver shooting from over twenty five feet and more at least eighty percent of the time as an example. Crazy difference. My question to you is did you see Bob Petit play in person? What I have read states the Hawks won their one championship mainly because of him. An era of Hawks I never saw. We have not won it all in Atlanta but I still love watching us try.
  20. “Sorry, guys! I’m used to passing to Giannis!” Oh, deer! Last night, our Atlanta Hawks proved once again that they are who everyone else said they were, flopping before the husk of a basketball team modeling Miami heat jerseys. Now, the Milwaukee Bucks traipse into the Highlight Factory (7:30 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast, Fox Sports Wisconsin), also looking to avoid losses on back-to-back nights. And much like the Hawks on Friday night, I fumbled around and waited too long to get my act together ahead of tonight’s contest. So, here’s a few items ahead of this
  21. ATL offers: Mike Scott - PF LAL offers: Brandon Bass - PF/C The Good: Scott career-best shooting: 56.7 2FG%, 40.9 3FG%, 80.0 FT%. Lakers last in NBA with 31.4 team 3FG%.

  22. ATL offers: Shelvin Mack, PG 2018 Second-Rounder IND trades: Rakeem Christmas, PF Solomon Hill, SF The Good: Mack per-36 career-highs: 18.9 points, 7.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds, while buried behind Dennis Schröder and Jeff Teague; also career-high 52.9 2FG%.

  23. ATL Offers: Mike Muscala (PF/C) 2017 Second-Rounder (lowest of BKN / MIA 31-40 Protected to ATL / ATL 31-55 Unprotected to SAS) PHX Trades: Jon Leuer (PF/C) The Good: Hawks near basement in D-REB% (27th?) but still prefer stretchy bigs to behemoths that can't shoot well. Leuer one of THREE Top 50 NBA Player in D-REB% (26.0%) that's also shooting above 40 3FG% on the season (40.2 3FG%, 6th among NBA bigs). Draymond Green 21.7 D-REB% and 41.9 3FG%. Luis Scola 20.5% and 42.5%. Muscala a younger (by 2 ye
  24. "So, our producers Google Image'd your surname, Evan, and here's what they found..." Way too busy again for a preview of this evening's tilt between the visiting Atlanta Hawks and the Orlando Magic (6:00 PM Eastern, Fox Sports Southeast, SUN Sports)! Chime in at will! See you in the Squawkchat! (PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Evan's nickname is "Never Google," and for good reason. Do NOT, under any circumstances, Google Evan's last name. No, seriously, do NOT! I see you over there thinking about it. Stop that right now! Think about basketball! This is your final warning!)
  25. RealGM Wiretap Hawks, DeAndre Kane Commit To Summer League, Plan To Discuss Possible Deal In July JUN 18, 2015 11:05 PM After private workouts this week, the Atlanta Hawks and guard DeAndre Kane have reached a summer league agreement for Las Vegas and plan to discuss further on a possible deal in July, league sources told RealGM. Kane, a former stand out at Iowa State, spent the past few days working out in Atlanta and settled upon a potential future with the Ha
