Need Dre to hit some 3s
Holy shit I don't think I hate a city for sports reasons any more than Boston.
Like every fn role player of theirs can’t miss
Glad we took the 2nd half off
good lord, are we doing this again throughout the whole season?
As the expert AJ I like this one
AJ gonna fuck around and find himself in the closing line up over Dre or JC
Holy shit at the play to win that game.
Ress is a fucking bum. Straight salary dump
Sell this team you cheap fucking douche
Tony Ressler - “I’m not afraid of the luxury tax!
Hey Nate, figure some shit out
And we might deal him?
It has been pretty apparent that the Hawks are going to deal Capela before his contract expires AND after Okongwu is ready to play 30+ minutes a night. Bogi was never going to be re-signed especially with the emergence of AJ. Team still has to pay Murray the super max in two years as well as a ~$20M annual contract for Okongwu starting that season as well. Just those two with Trae/Hunter/Collins is in the ~$155M range. Add in the rest of the roster on minimums and rookie salaries then payroll is approaching $200M. Unless the cap is over that by then (not likely), not a lot of room to keep two more ~$20M contracts. Atlanta just doesn’t have the market to pay a heavy tax penalty annually without the long term results to back it up even though Ressler is the 7th richest owner. We all hate Billionaires and don’t care about their money but just being realistic.
It was smart this year to not start the tax repeater clock even at the expense of Huerter. For one Schlenk would be locking the team into higher penalties for going over sooner. Second, ATL doesn’t get to share in any of that tax revenue from this season (close to $700M!). I would have dealt Hunter before Huerter but likely the front office saw the higher ceiling of a team with a mature Hunter. This is despite the results over the previous two seasons where teams with Huerter at SF were the best performing five man groups in the League.
I don't think there is ever going to be a scenario where Okongwu is ready to anchor that defense from the 5.
OO averages like 7 fouls per 48 until he gets that under control no way can he anchor the 5
I don't watch that many games because I have YTTV and have to borrow my mom's Direct TV Stream login which for whatever reason doesn't always show games...
but i check every box score and on games we lose OO's +/- is always like -17 or something. I don't think he's ever going to be anything more than depth for any team. Capella is one of the best centers in the NBA.
John and Dejountae playing for the other fucking team tonight
Nate needs to put him in the finishing line up anytime john or Dre shit the bed. Odds are likely one of them is doing it at either time
and Trae might be back folks. He looks like Trae again
Nate should be dropped into a Marta tracks for what he’s done to this offense
A friend gave us his tickets for tonight. A guy hit a half court shot for $10k during a timeout. It was incredible.
nice win. I cried for K’Von.
Need Dre and OO to do something tonight
I mean come the f on
AJ Griffin gonna take jobs soon
should absolutely be in the closing lineup
You know what would be cool? Having Delonn Wright and Kevin Huerter instead of the fucking Holiday bums
Absolute dogshit fourth
Trae make your fucking FT’s
This is the worst rebounding effort I’ve ever seen in an NBA game.
Ressler has me agreeing with Dan. I hate this guy.
Fucking fire Nate into the sun
go get Udoka while no one is looking
Nate has to go, right?
Beat Denver without Trae, Collins or Hunter
I’ve seen enough.
AJ Griffin should start over Hunter
Hunter is detrimental to winning
FYI Trae Young was suspiciously absent from the building and had a late injury pop up.
AJ is a fucking stud.
