Tanking over a bunch of guys who haven;t played real competition is stupid.

 

Harrison Barnes was supposed the be the best high school player since Lebron James also.  He was so highly thought of that he was a preseason 1st team  college all-american before he had ever played one game.

 

How many of you would tank a season to try and get Harrison Barnes (who is a good player BTW)?

 

Hopefully no one.

 

 

I thought barnes was better than mgk then and i think he is better than now.

Jefferson and Zeller are not as bad of defenders as everyone is making them out to be....

 

Jefferson is a decent on ball defender that struggles in help defense, I'm ok with that. 

 

Zeller is an excellent athlete, just because you don't block shots doesn't mean you are a bad defender

The better scorer only avg. .2 more then the guy who couldn't shoot. While MKG was better in every other category.

 

Plus MKG had more 20 point games while playing in 8 less games.

 

So maybe you need to rethink your statement.

Nah, I've been hating on it since it was announced the Bobcats were interested. Just think it's the wrong year to add Salary to a below average team. I understand why the Bobcats made the move, but I think it was possible to wait till next year to make the major FA moves.

You have to build a team gradually. You just cant built it all at once except if you're the you know Big Markets (Miami/Brooklyn/etc). Rome wasn't built in one day. Lol

Probably the best thing ever came out of you. Kudo

But it's more like this:

(1) Hibbert
(2) Noah
(3) Horford
(4) Jefferson
(5) Lopez

No need to Kudo me sir, I know my basketball and I called the Al Jefferson signing before FA. I know I wasn't here long but I called it.

 

 

Also Al Horford is a pf, he just plays center because the Hawks have no other bigman.

It's an overpay, but I think it's a good move in terms of length and the player. It's the biggest free agency move we've ever done and he's a great player at a position that we've fielded trash. Not to mention that, unless his skill set drastically erodes, there are teams every year looking to move assets for a big.

What centers are going to be FA next year?   Cousins won't come here and Monroe won't be let go, so who?  We've needed a 5 like this for a decade, can't wait and hope someone actually wants to play here.  We got him pretty cheap honestly.
