A new study shows our ticket prices are among the most affordable in the NBA: bit.ly/1ovdjYS (via @AtlBizChron)

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

Awesome RT @Michael Lee "Still laughing that CLE has won No. 1 pick 4 times in past 11 years & reportedly voted for lottery reform."

Lang Greene

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?

Buddy Grizzard

Flea you mad bro? I'd be mad too if my team was going to finish last in the West.

Buddy Grizzard

Oh man only 7.4% of the GMs polled think the Hawks will win the Southeast Division this season.

Buddy Grizzard

T-Wolves got Zach LaVine and Suns got TJ Warren despite having better records than the Hawks, so keep an eye on that.

Buddy Grizzard

Hawks made playoffs and got to pick behind a Suns team that missed the playoffs but had a significantly better record.

Buddy Grizzard

Lottery tier would be randomized, middle and playoff tier would all pick in reverse order of record.

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

Originally proposed those teams pick in random order within their range. Now I'm thinking those + playoff teams should pick in reverse order

Buddy Grizzard

There should be a random number (3-6 is suggested) of teams that miss playoffs but don't get to participate in the lottery.

Buddy Grizzard

I'm going to call an audible on my lottery reform system hawkshoop.com/wheel-proposal… I think the middle tier should exist but not be randomized.

Slow sale process another sign of Hawks’ ownership woes on-ajc.com/1ouHGi3

Buddy Grizzard

Gearon was perfectly aware of the culture that existed within the Hawks organization and only outed it when he saw a benefit for himself.

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

So tanking like the 76ers would have certainly been discouraged by proposed system, but tanking to barely miss playoffs would be rewarded.

Buddy Grizzard

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.

Buddy Grizzard

The league's proposed lottery reform would not have discouraged teams from tanking to miss the playoffs.

Buddy Grizzard

Zach Lowe is correct that Boston has not been a preferred destination for free agents. Usually brought in talent via lopsided trades.

Buddy Grizzard

So, in a round-about way, Garnett's willingness to forgo free agency helped make the trade happen and won Boston a title.

Buddy Grizzard

This was indeed factually incorrect. Kevin Garnett never signed with the Celtics as a free agent. He chose to forgo free agency by extending

Buddy Grizzard

In critiquing that piece, @Zach Lowe countered this statement: "The Celtics have proven to be a desirable destination for free agents."

Buddy Grizzard

Now let's talk about a lottery reform system that addresses real issues, rather than direct talent to large markets: hawkshoop.com/wheel-proposal…

Buddy Grizzard

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

Very disappointed in Chris Webber didn't know about Festus. Stock dropping.

Buddy Grizzard

Lmao Willis Reed was fined $50 for beating up the Lakers bench.

Buddy Grizzard

Ekpe Udoh just picked up his 4th foul in 5 mins, all trying to guard Ezeli. But hey Hawks fans who needs rim protection?!

Buddy Grizzard

Iguodala set up Ezeli for the oop and was SUPER PUMPED when the big boy threw it down.

Buddy Grizzard

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

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.

Buddy Grizzard

Forget Bradley's recent form. He should be concerned with his U.S. place based on horrifying performances in consecutive world cups.

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.

Small market teams are going to fall for "lottery reform" hook, line and sinker. Guess who gets more talent? Established, major-market teams

Think of the pressers! I would get an apartment in the ATL just to be close by in case of impromptu briefings.

Thus, it's not surprising to me that only Schröder played tonight as Bud starts to tighten up his regular season rotation.

Buddy Grizzard

...of that 4some, only Schröder showed that he belonged in game at end of a contest against the starters of projected conference contender.

Buddy Grizzard

In Chicago, Budenholzer closed with Muscala, Jenkins, Schröder and Payne, four players whose role this season remains up in the air...

Importance of the 3-pointer: Shoot 28% and almost lose to the Hornets minus three starters.
