Oh, missed that. There are still some guys I liked in Bruno and Claxton out there. I hope we go after one of them.

Gotta be a joke right?! Cam Johnson is a shooter, and a shooter only. He has no handle, very average defender at best, non existent as a creator passing or his own shot. The only thing Johnson is superior in, is the ability to shoot, and that's got a lot to do with Cam being very polished as he was a red shirt senior. If you want to bash Cam Reddish, maybe you should go back and look at Cam Johnson as a freshman as well. It took Johnson 5 years just to get to this level of play statistically, and he' still a one trick pony. I actually like Johnson too, but it's a slap in the face to compare the 2.

What was that?

PHX’s front office is run by a half eaten bag of Doritos. Their picking of Cam Johnson is widely recognized as a reach especially when you add in his scary medical history and how he’s older than Devin Booker.

They were drafted one pick a part so NBA personnel didn’t think there was nearly the gap in talent between the two of them than you did.

Everyone and their mom said Phoenix reached. The Suns board is blown and many are upset we picked Reddish right in front of them. Hell, I live in Phoenix, and at the fans around here are pissed.

I wasn't in front of a laptop throughout the draft but I've never been this thrilled with a Hawks draft the night of. Schlenk has hit a grand slam thus far.

I totally misread when the Draft Party crowd at The Farm reacted WILDLY, and immediately, to the pick at #9.

"The gentrification in this town is getting out of control. All these happy Wizards fans crawling out the woodwork in our building is bad enough. But who knew these folks were such maniacal Gonzaga fans, too?"

Happiest Draft Party crowd I can remember, and for good reason. Very nice second-rounders, too.

Go Hawks!

Man all of our lineups sound amazing, but my favorite combination:
Trae
Huert
Reddish
Hunter
Collins

Lord bless whoever has to defend that for any amount of time.

We have so many valuable pieces. Coach Pierce should have a fun time trying different things once Baze is out of the way.

We did it again.

2018: A+ Trae Huerter Spellman
2019: A+ Hunter Cam Bruno

Add in the great Collins pick at 19 in 2017. Schlenk has been the best Hawks GM ever. Well as long as I’ve followed mid 80’s.

I can now truly say....I love our core

I don't know whether he is better than Johnson or not, but I do agree that Reddish has a lot of hype. He is a shooter who can do other things, but he does not like contact at all. In current NBA, that is a huge problem...

Last year I gave the Hawks an 'F' because the gap in talent between Ayton/Doncic and the rest of the players was too huge.

This year, I give the Hawks an '-A'. The gap in talent between Sekou Doumbouya and Hunter is not that much, but it is scary to think that Sekou will still grow to be 7feet.

I think that Reddish's weak mental game and poor work ethic will turn him into a bust, but if he just grows up and act like a professional he could be a poor man's Durant.

I'm amazed by getting Bruno!!! He is the 2nd best center in the draft. Everybody knows that Bruno has elite size, an above average jump shot, but Hawks fans will be surprised with Bruno's passing. He is no Jokic, but in 2-3years, he could be a 3-4 assist per game NBA center.

Whoever invited Bol Bol to the green room at the draft should be fired.


While Bol drew focus early in the NBA draft for sporting a suit with a giant spiderweb emblazoned on it, the 7-foot-2 center became the most compelling prospect of the post-lottery picks, seemingly waiting forever in the green room to be selected.

Bol finally went with the No. 44 pick to the Nuggets (via the Heat), more than four hours after the draft begun.
