The Bad Larry Drew comes out again

Here are my bullet points from Game 5:

1. I loved our energy. This was the first time I saw us play a playoff game the way we should every day

2. We battled early and recovered despite their hot shooting. It was good to see us battle back and even briefly take the lead in the 4th. Read the full story

NBA ref admits he blew call on inadvertent whistle. I ask why?

bennett salvatoreWhy did Bennett Salvatore feel the need to review and comment specifically about only this call. Granted, it was an odd sequence but there were quite a few non calls going against Atlanta which he did not comment on.  I agree it is rare to see an inadvertent whistle call but it was not clear that it was a foul. Look closely and you see both Derrick Rose and Jamal Crawford initially try to avoid contact, backing away from each other. Crawford lands, at which point Rose jumps into him. That is a no call. If Crawford had been in the air when Rose jumped into him I could see the argument but he had already landed and was stationary so at best, you could argue a no call and if anything could have been called (but never would be), it should have been a charge.

Will the True Josh Smith Please Stand Up

The Josh Smith we love showed up for the most part. Problem is he still does not get it. I was disappointed in his post game interview. He said the fans do not understand and that he does not care because his teammates believe in him.  Does he not understand that he was not in a funk, he simply was shooting to many jumpers. He clearly needs a vocal mentor. He understood that since he was playing the 3, he needed to play like Deng but does he not realize he can do the same thing if he plays the 4?  Read the full story

Hawks trade breakdown: Hinrich for Bibby and Larry Drew

Mike Bibby

Mike Bibby

     I am a Mike Bibby fan and I am sad to see him go, however, I do understand that he is older now and not really that effective at this point in his career. Kirk Hinrich is an upgrade over anything we currently have in 2 guard spot but the problem with Hinrich is that in Chicago, they continued to draft point guards when they had him. Is Hinrich really a point guard, or is he more of a shooting guard? Either way it is an upgrade at a reasonable price. Read the full story

Time for Round 4: Hawks vs Magic with my favorite Hawk Zaza Pachulia

Hawks Vs MagicI love Zaza Pachulia. He is my favorite Hawk. He is the only guy I see standing up to other teams. J Rich is an idiot. He said he came in because he thought Pachulia fouled Howard excessively. I guess he did not care that Howard threw an elbow. Plus, Pachulia was walking away from Howard when J Richardson approached him. Neg gain, Hawks. Richardson is a starter. Pachulia is our energy guy. I think we survive.

I hate how our coaches never posture by complaining about calls. Learn from Phil Jackson, it works and he has a ring or two. We need to start complaining about how Howard takes cheap shots all the time and because he is a star, he gets away with it. Howard has a delicate psyche, and if you mess with his head, he is liable to do something stupid on the court, get frustrated, overplay, and get technicals. We need to complain about Van Gundy complaining. Some of the battles are the playoffs are done off the court, but we never play those battles and so we lose them.
