Also, I'm wondering if there was some talk about going back to uniforms that closely resemble the ones in the 80s, red gold yellow or even if we kept it with the blue. Think a change of jerseys would help with the new image we want going forward!
I'm glad to see these frauds finally sell to an owner that's actually a billionaire. Any idea if Ressler is interested in bringing hockey back to Atlanta at some point (say, the Florida Panthers), even if he just allows another owner to have an NHL team play in Philips?
There are always conspiracy theories for NBA playoff matchups, i.e. who they (NBA and TV partners) want in the late playoff stages? Given ATL's historically strong NBA viewing numbers (per the K. Arnovitz Jan. 2015 ESPN.com article) do we rate at least to get some favorable/questionable calls from the refs to get to the Eastern Finals, presumably vs. CLE? LOL
What do you think about Barkley getting a toe on the Hawks bandwagon (LOL). He at least gave us credit to get out of the 1st round, whereas pre-Ferry, he was straight Hawks hater ....or at least iso-Joe hatin'
Often times Schroder seems out of control with his forced layups over 3 or 4 defenders. When he has the ball at the top of the key, everyone in the arena should know he's about to take off 1-on-4 (or 5). He gets them to fall sometimes. But more often than not it's a lost possession. Thoughts?
Chris I appreciate your work all season. Between the weakness of the East and the Hawks draw, anything besides a conference final appearance will be a disappointment. What could de-rail that? Where are the Hawks most vulnerable to exploitation in the playoffs?
When will Korver be back? I felt like had we had him in the game versus GSW we could have definitely kept it closer, or even could have won. I feel like we'll be very strong once we get Selfolosha, Scott, and Korver back to full strength. What do you think of giving Mack more playing time? I feel like he's better than people think he is. Thoughts?
Can you explain why they traded Payne. Pretty early to give up on a mid first round pick. And the draft pick they got is lottery protected so it won't be much lower than where Payne was drafted and could turn into a second rounder. I don't buy this "roster flexibility " excuse. Also who would you like to see them draft with the Nets pick. Seems like will be around 10th
