Oh no way. It’s gotta be finals appearance of bust for Bud. He has the most pressure of any coach to get his team to the finals for sure. This regular season stuff won’t fly anymore, not with a Giannis on board.

:D

Spud. A great big IF. If the Atlanta Hawks are 100% healthy when they hit the playoffs, Bud and the Bud Boys will have to go thru this Hawk team to make it to the eastern finals. Yes, if 100% healthy, they are THAT good !!

I believe it Gramps. It would be a story that wrote itself. Bud struggles in the playoffs and while Trae and the Hawks haven’t been there, Trae just strikes me as a major problem for anyone once he gets in. I agree Gramps health is HUGE. Wow, knocking Bud off in a 3/6, 2/7 matchup. We need that as a fan base.
GO HAWKS!!! :thumbsup:

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the NBA and NBPA have agreed to host the All-Star Game March 7 in Atlanta. 

There are still some details that both sides need to work out, but it looks like there will be a midseason classic after all. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Tuesday that the game would be in the traditional East vs. West format, and there would be a skills competition as well. The most important details left to be agreed upon are likely those involving safety protocols, given the fact that we're still in the midst of a global pandemic.

Ky Carlin: Dwight Howard says the Buccaneers defense last night inspired the #Sixers to want to play better defense. He was impressed with how they held down Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Bradley Beal is off the NBA's trade market: 'He doesn’t want to quit on something'

“He doesn’t want to quit on something,” Beal’s agent, Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports & Entertainment, told Yahoo Sports. “He’s an incredibly loyal guy, and he wants to always feel like he’s done everything he can to help something or someone be successful. It’s the way he was raised and what his values are based upon. It’s ingrained in him. It’s what makes him, in my mind, so unique. He’s all about the right things.” https://sports.yahoo.com/bradley-beal-is-off-the-nbas-trade-market-he-doesnt-want-to-quit-on-something-203233548.html

Man, I respect the hell out of this. But he's putting the franchise at a disadvantage. That team and that player would both benefit greatly by reloading and moving on. He's holding on to a bad relationship for no reason than loyalty.

I always thought he actually wanted to be traded. His wife has been vocal on social media in the past.
I guess I need to take his word.

And hired Raptors assistant Chris Finch.
He needs to make a name for himself with Minnesota and the young weapons he has.

Hmmm, Mavs gonna throw money at JC huh.. :sleep: Ya I’m not worried. And no, I don’t want the Zinger in exchange he’s not his old Knick self and never will be going forward. He’s about done, too bad for Kristaps.
