As for the 3rd pick...

Sigh...

I don't see any way the Hawks can "win" with that pick unless they trade it. They are going to draft Horford, a fine player and a guy who looks like he will be a very solid pro but clearly not a player the Hawks need.

The guys the Hawks need, as everyone knows, is Mike Conley Jr. But, he is more like the 6th-9th pick in the draft, not the 3rd. So, either the Hawks reach and grab a kid earlier than they should or they miss out on the kid they need the most. No win situation.

Whatever the worst possible option is, that is what the Hawks will do. Such is the fate of this franchise.

I have a friend who really wants Steve Belkin to win his court case and get the team. I pointed out that many folks fear Belkin will keep the payroll low and not be interested in fielding a winner. My friends response, "but at least he would fire Woodson and Knight on day one."

My response to that was a smile and a nod.

This will probably be a minority opinion, but I always liked the Hawks' 1980s uniforms. Their unis since then have ranged from boring to ugly.

If he gets the chance, Belkin will turn this franchise around. He has tremendous integrity, knows the game, and will generate synergy throughout the organization. Anyone who says that Belkin is "not interested in fielding a winner" is sorely ill-informed or a liar. There are no other possibilities. NONE!
