Had lottery reform passed, a theoretical Hawks lottery pick would have had a five times greater chance of being a top 5 pick, 15% vs 3%.

Buddy Grizzard

If Nets pick falls where Hornets are currently, Hawks will have a 3% chance to move into top 5.

Buddy Grizzard

To clarify, if the Nets finish 9th or worse in the East, the Hawks will pick in the lottery.

Buddy Grizzard

Had lottery reform passed and if Hornets overtake Nets in standings, Hawks' odds for a top 5 draft pick would increase from 3% to 15%

If I'm Mike Budenholzer, the next Hawks-Pistons game I try to isolate Scott on Tolliver at least 20 times. Has as much chance as me on D.

Buddy Grizzard

Was Anthony Tolliver always this bad defensively or is Mike Scott just making him look bad?

Buddy Grizzard

But Mike Scott is a threat to score from anywhere on the court and he can get his own shot. Definitely a skillset the Hawks need on bench.

Buddy Grizzard

That left handed baseline jumper by Mike Scott is everything. This dude is making serious strides this season. Still needs work on D.

Buddy Grizzard

Horford on a strech of games shooting 80%. If he took more shots, his counting stats would go up and then Charles Barkley could comprehend.

Buddy Grizzard

Horford was plus-19 in this game because he dominated without scoring. He's efficient so Barry is right that he could/should shoot more.

Buddy Grizzard

Jon Barry points out on the ESPN broadcast that Horford has only nine field goal attempts. This is what Charles Barkley doesn't understand.

Buddy Grizzard

On both Scott baskets that ignited the decisive run, Tolliver overplayed the ball handler on the pick and roll and couldn't recover in time.

Buddy Grizzard

Al J to open 4th stretches lead to 9 then Meeks and Tolliver, Caldwell-Pope hit a 3s to close it to 74-72. Scott exploited Tolliver's D.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks made a run after Pero Antic's bad pass at the end of the 3rd. Horford and Scott came in with 2 mins to play in qtr, both hit baskets.

Hawks' magic number 1 for Budenholzer to coach East All-Stars on-ajc.com/1xQWRQb

Buddy Grizzard

I've said this before, but the moment MLS has the money to compete for talent, the higher standard of living is going to bring players over.

Buddy Grizzard

Those European glamor clubs are accustomed to only having limited competition for talent. MLS with NHL's salary cap would drain talent.

Buddy Grizzard

Once MLS truly becomes 5th major North American sports league, it will have financial power to compete with Europe's glamor clubs for talent

Buddy Grizzard

If MLS ever becomes the equal of any of the four major North American sports leagues, it becomes a threat to European soccer.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks' magic number is 1 ... for Mike Budenholzer and staff to coach East All-Stars. ajc.com/news/sports/ba… #ATLHawks

Buddy Grizzard

Americans wouldn't support a system where the same teams got the top players and won the titles year after year. Thus draft is necessary.

Buddy Grizzard

Americans grow up on the American Dream which says you can rise as high as your ingenuity and work ethic take you.

Buddy Grizzard

Europeans can love a side that will never have resources or talent to contend because they are accustomed to accepting their static place.

Jaryd Wilson

W W W W W W W W W W W W W http://t.co/9poqYI90iM

Buddy Grizzard

Europeans, since before the dark ages, are accustomed to class stratification. Thus, they're willing to accept their place as football fans.

Buddy Grizzard

The reason this resource and talent stratification is acceptable to Europeans but not acceptable to Americans is cultural.

Buddy Grizzard

Lower tier teams can occasionally rise up and contend but you'll never see parity like the NFL where a it's a different team each year.

Buddy Grizzard

Italy, England, France, Spain all have their haves and have nots. Only select organizations have the financial power to court top talent.

Buddy Grizzard

If organizations draft well and hire good management, they have same access to talent as other organizations. European soccer is different.

Buddy Grizzard

The draft is the instrument that extends the American Dream into sport. The idea is that every team has the opportunity to be champions.

Buddy Grizzard

The reason Europeans want to see soccer fail in America is because they do not subscribe to the American Dream.

Prior to today's game vs Hawks, Brandon Jennings had a PER of 28.3 since Josh Smith was released. Jeff Teague held him to 1-for-10 shooting.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks reportedly tried to get Wessy Wess.

Buddy Grizzard

I only have a problem with Charles using as the basis of that opinion that Monroe and Drummond dominated Horford, who was plus-19.

Buddy Grizzard

Seriously, I don't have a problem with Barkley having an opinion that the Hawks won't make it past the 2nd round and aren't best in East.

Buddy Grizzard

How do so many Hall of Fame-caliber former basketball players know so little about basketball?

Buddy Grizzard

Kenny and Shaq predicted Hawks to ECF. Chuck says Wizards and Bulls are best teams in East and Cavs are "knocking on the door."

Jason Walker

That’s cool though - I am totally good with the Hawks being the #1 seed, possibly, and still being doubted. CAW CAW

Buddy Grizzard

Al Horford was plus-19. Greg Monroe was minus-16. But according to Charles Barkley, Hawks got "mauled" by Pistons' front line @bochurney

Jason Walker

Charles, the #ATLHawks just dispatched all the teams you listed as the best…in their houses!
