Man if we finish with the 8th worst record
yall winning too many meaningless games.
Can’t be helped, at least the young guys are playing well
Hawks could hopefully lose ROS with all the playoff teams they are facing
We got a tough ass schedule ahead. We should be back in the losing column for the most part. In the mean time
We need to be in the bottom 3
Tank for Zion
Hate to sound like.... me from 08-16 but we don't NEED a top 3 pick. I think we have a legit foundation, just need a wing and a big man. Of course I'd love it if we got Zion but love it more if we got the right pieces to take Trae and John to their next levels.
I agree in theory...you don't need a top 3 pick but would you want one, absolutely. The NBA is built off of superstars who were all high lottery picks. You increase your odds of getting a superstar by picking higher in the draft, it's as simple as that
Absolutely. You also increase your odds of getting a superstar by putting the best fit of players together to succeed. What's a reasonable projection for Zion? 20 and 12? John is doing that right now. 25+ ppg? How many shots does he take from Trae to get there? JC/ZW frontcourt, who is protecting the rim?
We get the @#1 pick then I'll hand Zion's name on a card to Silver myself, but I think we have the top 2 players of a potential contending roster already and would be our best if we compliment them. Point is we're no longer a "Zion or bust" ass team
Ideally I want cameron reddish, but jarrett culver and deandre hunter would be good fits at the 3 too.
I'll be watching all closely moving forward and through the NCAA tournament.
Also, TS has shown he can draft at any spot so I'm not worried about what pick we get anymore. Like @Kaedus said, we already have two young tier-1 players in Collins/Trae and a potential 3rd in Heurter. Also don't forget we have hella cap space so I wouldn't be surprised to see them go hard at a top free agent. This will be an interesting off-season as I think these dudes are beyond their years and ready to make some noise. I think we're only one more piece away.
We don’t need Zion we have John Collins..need a SF or a C with the top picks
Also, what ya'll think about Prince now? He is looking more and more comfortable and has been playing great recently.
If I'm the Hawks, I go BPA and figure out the fit later. You can find a rim protector or a 3&D guy in free agency.
