Don't be shy. What else you got?
I answered a couple questions before posting them to the public. You should be able to see those now. Fire away with anything else.
Zach: I think last night was all about the hot hand. Certainly Teague struggled and CMB couldn't argue with the job Schroder was doing. It's evident by the last four games, that CMB is getting more and more confident in Schroder. He did have a few turnovers last night but he scored a couple big baskets and made key free throws down the stretch.
Dave: Danny Ferry remains on a leave of absence. The team has not fired him because the independent investigation into the matter that they prompted found the comment did not warrant a dismissal. They would be open to a lawsuit if they try now. Ultimately, I believe his fate rests with the new ownership - whenever the sale is completed.
Dan: I have predicted that the Hawks are a 48-50 win team. Would have felt a little better about that had they would have gotten the win in San Antonio or Charlotte. I still think it's a reasonable total. I think they could be a top-5 team in the East, easily. Right now, the Cavs, Bulls and really the Raptors are up there. After that, it's wide open. Certainly they are a playoff team.
O'Brien: I'll disagree a little bit with you there. I break most of the Hawks news. Other reporters have other sources and I do get beat from time to time. Generally speaking I'm on top of it here. I wish folks would just give me scoops!
We are approaching the end of the session. I really enjoyed it. Great questions. I hope good answers. Judging by the interest, I say we do it again. Stay tuned.
Adrian: He is done. He said this is a more difficult rehab because it's a torn right pectoral - his shooting arm. That will make it tough to come back less than 100 percent.
Lon: I will tell Wally to referred to him as The Most Interesting Man in the NBA (you are not is mother, right?) I know the Hawks have consultants that are trying to build their brand - and there remains the image problem with ownership (see the Thrashers) that is still an issue.
SJ: Can't speak for other news organization or the columnists at the AJC. I'm here every day. I think the columnists write about the Hawks when appropriate. There is so much going on in Atlanta with college football, the Braves, the Falcons, other college sports, NASCAR. That's why we love it, right?
O'Brien: No assistant primarily working with defense. Each assistant works with individual players (see my Daily Vitamins blog) both on their offense and defense. Bud quite often works with players showing them video of good/bad, etc.
Adrian: Lou is not in the doghouse for disciplinary reasons. I have done a lot of reporting on that and it will be a part of the upcoming story I referenced. If the injury to Schroder costs him games then I think Lou will get back in the rotation.
IceCold: Again, there are many moving parts to your question. How will Horford return? Will Mike Scott continue to make the strides he has to become a power forward option? What free agents can they sign? A lot of moving parts.
Lon: Interesting story idea. Let me think about what I can do. I did something on Steve Holman last year and did something on Ryan Cameron and the team video's this year. I'm looking to do another big offseason project (like Jason Collier last year) so I will put some thought into it. Let me know if you have an idea.
O'Brien: Ferry has some workings with attendance but he is a basketball operations guy. If he puts a winning team with championship caliber on the floor that will help attendance. The rest falls on the owners, management and the myriad of consultants they are working with.
Devoun: Your question is very interesting and one that is worth watching. In my opinion, I think the Hawks would like to see Millsap more at the SF. But they do like Horford at the center because of his game away from the basket. First they need to get the right center. That is the challenge.
