Tonight: Hawks draft Okungwu March/April: "we are still waiting on that toe to get all the way healed, we really can't put a timetable on it."

I am back from my PP/PCP, my stress levels were too high and causing some issues but I am back. Just gotta relax. My professional job is stressful as well as family and my personal life but I am good

Actual footage of Edward's agent seeing the interview:

Short Version:  Anything that goes right is unrelated to Pierce.  Anything that goes wrong is solely LP’s fault.

Not everything..Those failed Draft picks past 19, the terrible free agent signings and stupid trades are on Schlenk

Fair enough.  Nothing good from him but some bad spills over onto TS.  I Shouldn’t have forgotten about all those 2nd round picks we’ve discussed in prior threads.

I do still view the Capela trade as a triple for us.  Really close to saying home run.

Even the most ardent supporters of LP have admit that Trae is self motivated and will succeed regardless of who the coach is.  He puts in his time.  Cam played strictly on talent alone and improved because is was so terrible initially.  You could tell in Cam's post camp interview that he still doesn't understand what he should be doing to play winning basketball

I’ve seen a pattern of consistent improvement from our young guys and I give LP credit on that front.  The only one who doesn’t fit that mold is Huerter because his improvement was more modest in year 2 to the point of nearly flat.  Everyone else (including year 1 Huerter) fits that mold for me and the coach is partly responsible for it.

Did Bembry improve?  What about Prince? Huerter? Charlie Brown? Bruno? Fatso Spellman? Jones? Graham? Tyler Dorsey?

Can someone direct me to the 'Ask Supes' thread?  Ya know, the one where we discuss possible roster moves, news, etc.

Somehow I got directed to another tired, useless 'fire the coach' thread.

Lmaooooo

I mean, I'm not saying the discussion can't be had.  I'm saying, for sanity's sake, it can't be had across 4-5 threads that aren't related to coaching.

It's KB-ish levels with the 'tank' stuff.

I reserve the right to hijack any thread of my choosing to vent my own personal grievances. You have been warned.

 

Also, what's up with airline food....Am I right?

He has shown up every once in a while over the last year.  Showed up long enough to make a bet with me where he predicted that the team would be among the 5 worst teams in the league next year.  So either I or he will be eating some crow on the team's rebuild depending on how the team does.  I'd say it would even lead to some fun for the winner but I can no longer take it as a given that someone will actually fulfil their bet.

Marks sees Atlanta as a dark horse team that could sign Hayward to $100/4 yrs if he opts out. Lowe is saying Hawks are yearning to become a playoff team next season.

Could we not talk about He Who Trolls Every Thread? I don't want him to come back and ruin yet another offseason and spill into next season.

A smidge late but this is that trickle of information we were expecting last week. Looks like there is still confusion over when and how to announce things. Make no mistake, there has been stuff already done in the background. Some of it was in place 2 weeks ago.
