Did the A/C get turned off in here? Because we are HOT. First quarter shooting: 6/20 Second quarter shooting: 7/7
Mike Scott's second quarter: 3/3 shooting, 8 points. All in just 3 minutes.
Spurs get the mojo working in Q1 and lead 25-17.
Our shooting stats: Threes: 3/5 Twos: 2/12 http://t.co/D05tWAJ7eh
We've answered their 7-0 start with a 7-0 run of our own.
After spotting the Spurs a touchdown, Al responds with a safety for us.
These staffs know each other well. Assistant coach Neven Spahija hugs it out with Pop pregame. http://t.co/GZavVkyWVH
Jeff, Kyle, DeMarre, Paul and Al on the floor to start things.
The Spurs have the best restroom signs in the league: http://t.co/2GcmG2M1Uh
Speaking of Cleveland and lottery reform, any real reform should address the issue of a single team winning top pick in 3 out of 4 drafts.
UNC closed up shop hard and heavy on Rashad McCants and vilified the man. But look at all the scrambling that's going on in chapel hill now
Whose brilliant idea was it to give away 1st rounders for a 40-year-old? Kobe sign off on that one?
Flea you mad bro? I'd be mad too if my team was going to finish last in the West.
Oh man only 7.4% of the GMs polled think the Hawks will win the Southeast Division this season.
Notice the Lakers and Celtics weren't among the no votes.
T-Wolves got Zach LaVine and Suns got TJ Warren despite having better records than the Hawks, so keep an eye on that.
Hawks made playoffs and got to pick behind a Suns team that missed the playoffs but had a significantly better record.
Lottery tier would be randomized, middle and playoff tier would all pick in reverse order of record.
So the only purpose of the randomly-sized middle tier is to make it impossible for a team to target a certain record to move up a tier.
Originally proposed those teams pick in random order within their range. Now I'm thinking those + playoff teams should pick in reverse order
There should be a random number (3-6 is suggested) of teams that miss playoffs but don't get to participate in the lottery.
Gearon was perfectly aware of the culture that existed within the Hawks organization and only outed it when he saw a benefit for himself.
C-Viv says the league may be pressuring all of Hawks ownership to make 100% of the team available. This would be best possible outcome.
So tanking like the 76ers would have certainly been discouraged by proposed system, but tanking to barely miss playoffs would be rewarded.
A team that barely missed playoffs would have been given a 400% better chance to climb to the top of the lottery than the current system.
The league's proposed lottery reform would not have discouraged teams from tanking to miss the playoffs.
Zach Lowe is correct that Boston has not been a preferred destination for free agents. Usually brought in talent via lopsided trades.
So, in a round-about way, Garnett's willingness to forgo free agency helped make the trade happen and won Boston a title.
This was indeed factually incorrect. Kevin Garnett never signed with the Celtics as a free agent. He chose to forgo free agency by extending
Good job small market NBA teams not falling for the lottery reform scam. First it was the "Wheel" which was an even more obvious talent grab
Brad and Andrew are getting after it... *grabs popcorn*
Max is showing us some love in San Francisco! http://t.co/i9V6fsTusz
Very disappointed in Chris Webber didn't know about Festus. Stock dropping.
Lmao Willis Reed was fined $50 for beating up the Lakers bench.
Ekpe Udoh just picked up his 4th foul in 5 mins, all trying to guard Ezeli. But hey Hawks fans who needs rim protection?!
Iguodala set up Ezeli for the oop and was SUPER PUMPED when the big boy threw it down.
Festus Ezeli with a big rejection... so good to see him back on the floor, now he hits a baseline turn around, 1st bucket in 17 months
Jared Cunningham out here ballin

And remember, Bradley had only recently moved to Toronto FC prior to the World Cup. I guess we can blame Roma for his poor form.
Forget Bradley's recent form. He should be concerned with his U.S. place based on horrifying performances in consecutive world cups.
Grand jury still hasn't come to a decision in Mike Brown case? Group must be studying thermodynamics. Can't be deciding guilt or innocence
After "lottery reform" all you gotta do if you're the Lakers is drop out of the playoffs, "win" a couple lotteries, get right back in game.
"Teams that'll drop from two to eight, or three to nine – that's just going to take the air out of those fan bases." Trojan horse incoming.
And isn't a less competitive NBA really what we all deserve?
Small market teams are going to fall for "lottery reform" hook, line and sinker. Guess who gets more talent? Established, major-market teams
ROSTER UPDATE: We have waived Jarell Eddie and Dexter Pittman.

I am interested in that show -- People hate Simmons but I like him and enjoy his take on the league and like Jalen a lot, too. Will DVR.
Think of the pressers! I would get an apartment in the ATL just to be close by in case of impromptu briefings.
Dikembe buying the Hawks (which is what I think I translated with my Lucky Charms language ring, would be epic.
Tough injury plagued season for the Falcons' offensive line
