You see I did not enter them in there as a answer! SMH. When in all out reality they should very well be up atop the East along with Boston and Raps.

The inconsistency is killing me man!! I cannot even watch sometimes without getting a headache. I went from saying we would be a top 4 seed to now hoping we even make the 8th spot with Charlotte coming down our backs sick.gif

Pope and Meeks injury hurt us but that is no excuse. We need to step our game up this second half and run off about 5 in a row so we can get back up these rankings. Blowing that lead to NY, Indy whooping our A**, Boston whooping our A**, Toronto whooping our A**.....We could of had a nice string of wins on our hands these past 2 weeks.

Lets keep our hopes up my guy! eyes.gif Maybe we make a deadline move.

So, I saw the dunk contest line-up (for those who haven't LaVine, Will Barton, Dre Drummond and Aaron Gordon). Not bad, I guess. But I'd say its LaVine's contest to lose. Barton is the only one who may be able to challenge him, but I doubt it. If the gimmicks are minimal and we get a couple nice dunks from all the contestants, the contest will at least be enjoyable.

They should get rid of the dunk contest. Nothing wows people any more anyway. Zach could do a triple front flip through a ring of fire into a windmill dunk and people would be like 'meh I saw some flight club dude do this 3 years ago'

To be fair, slightly better than the absolute worst is probably still pretty bad.

But you make a solid point.

Sixers dont look AS BAD since they got Ish, and he's been helping Noel bring up his stats significantly. They still need to execute in the closing minutes, because they have fallen on their faces in too many close games

That will happen when your previous point guard was a center.  I swear they didn't have a guard on their team before they signed him.

But we agreed that he makes the team better the argument was he sucks at shooting which he clearly does lack

Gordon got the bunnies too, Lavine probably will best him in the creativity category

I thought NoblKane was saying that he sucks overall ("Ish Smith really is ish..."), which is what I responded too. That's not true. But I don't dispute he's a poor shooter.

Yeah, I like Gordon, but bigger guys don't usually fare that well in the contest. That's why I see Barton as LaVine's most likely competition.

Hawks may entertain deals for Al Horford, Jeff Teague at deadline


The Atlanta Hawks are engaged in serious internal discussions ahead of the Feb. 18 trade deadline about the future direction of their team and the core players, including three All-Stars from their historic 2014-15 team -- Al Horford, Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver.

After winning a franchise-high 60 games last season, the Hawks are currently 30-24 and fifth in the Eastern Conference after consecutive losses to the Orlando Magic on Sunday and Monday. Atlanta is clustered with a scrum of seven teams separated by only 4 1/2 games behind the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors.

Sources with knowledge of the team's thinking say that Hawks' management and ownership have conceded internally that unless Atlanta can recapture the magic of last season's historic run, this season's team is a fringe contender.

This realization has prompted Atlanta to think long and hard about Horford, who is in the final year of a five-year, $60 million contract extension. The Hawks must decide whether to re-sign their big man to a hefty five-year deal, or try to move him now while they can get value.

If the Hawks decide to test the market for Horford, numerous teams would potentially show interest. Sources inform ESPN that the Boston Celtics, Denver Nuggets, and Magic have been the most aggressive in looking to acquire a veteran difference maker.

The expectation is a robust market for Horford, who will be an unrestricted free agent for the first time this summer after nine seasons with the Hawks. Because of the anticipated demand, Horford is likely to receive offers up to the maximum amount, which would be $144.5 million over five years should he stay with the Hawks.

Should Horford remain with the Hawks through the conclusion of the season, a rival team could offer him a maximum of four years and $107.3 million.

Horford would turn 35 in the final year of his contract, which would pay him $32.7 million. Sources say that while ownership has pledged to both spend and to entrust the Hawks' basketball minds to make basketball decisions, that figure along with the overall tab -- which would amount to one of the richest contracts in the NBA -- has the Hawks' brass a bit skittish.

The Hawks won't deny they're tackling the difficult exercise of determining whether to forge ahead with the current core or to disassemble the roster in an effort to retool for the future. Sources close to the organization emphasize that if the Hawks become active in the next week, it will not be to "blow it up," but rather an attempt to exchange their existing players for commensurate, if younger, talent.

All of these considerations fall on the shoulders of Mike Budenholzer, who is one of the few in the NBA to have both the titles of head coach and president of basketball operations.

Sources close to the Hawks feel that, at present, Budenholzer isn't inclined to dismantle a team less than nine months removed from a conference finals appearance.

Others around the league to carry titles of both coach and executive have never had to face the task of deciding whether to hold or sell. In two decades, Gregg Popovich has never had to reboot in San Antonio. Doc Rivers left Boston for the Los Angeles Clippers in large part to assure himself he wouldn't have to make a decision like the one facing Budenholzer. Since his arrival in Detroit, Stan Van Gundy's mission has been to build around Andre Drummond.

But Budenholzer must now balance the short-term needs of competing nightly for a playoff spot with the long-term needs of having the table set for opening night 2019.

A persistent hip injury to Tiago Splitter will also factor into the Hawks' strategy as sources say the reserve center is seeking opinions and considering surgery. Whatever his course of treatment, Splitter will be out for an extended period. His absence is very problematic for a Hawks team that ranks last in the league in rebounding rate, and is thin on its front line.

The Hawks have been gauging the market for point guard Teague, who has started 345 games for Atlanta over the past four and a half seasons. Sources say the Indiana Pacers have made inquiries and have dangled guard George Hill as a possible swap. The Magic are also potential suitors for Teague, sources confirmed.

Teague's favorable contract, which will pay him $8 million in 2016-17, coupled with the potential shown by backup Dennis Schroder has rendered the seven-year veteran shoppable.

Schoder, chosen with the 17th overall pick in the 2013 draft, emerged last season as a potent, if sometimes erratic, weapon off the bench. In addition, the coaching staff admires the 22-year-old's competitive streak, a quality the mellower Teague exhibits more sparingly.

In a league increasingly focused on shooting, long-range specialist Korver is another player who has attracted interest, though sources say he is less likely to leave Atlanta.

While staying the course might lead to nothing more than a second-round exit for the Hawks, the alternative demolition plan is fraught with complications.

Budenholzer regards Horford and Korver as essential to both what the Hawks do on the floor and the professionalism they've cultivated in the locker room. Though the Hawks regard their culture as bigger than any one or two players, Horford and Korver are tent poles for a franchise that has made steadiness and a familial vibe its calling cards.

The Hawks' recent success has generated revenue on the business side. The franchise has seen generous bumps in season ticket sales, sponsorship and local television ratings, growth which would potentially be put at risk were the Hawks to ship out mainstays of their likable core like Horford, Korver and Teague.

In addition, Antony Ressler, who closed on his Hawks' purchase last June to help save a franchise historically beset by questionable ownership, could see his early reign as a benevolent owner compromised by imploding the Hawks' roster.
