The Hawks have the worst defense in The NBA...

They give up the most points and they fail in eye test big time. I hope there's some wink and a nod stuff going on to secure a top draft pick, because this is as bad as I've ever seen on defense. They don't even try to stop inside scoring.

    I think the Golden State influence has become negative. Everybody wants a team of hybrid scorers who can also play defense, but there aren't enough to go around. So instead we're getting a lot of perimeter players who either can't play defense or won't put much energy into it.

    The NBA went decades with just minor fluctuations in scoring till very recently, now it's exploding.

    Hopefully we have the worst record in the NBA as well. We need the number one pick.

    Need way more than that - but it’d be a great start. Even #2 will get a great prospect.

    Until they decide to spend the money that it takes to build a decent team this is what we’ll get year after year.

    Hard to believe the Hawks could lose 10 in a row. Also, hard to believe they actually won a game 11 games ago.

    This year's draft was the start. We got 2 good players and a potentially great player. Next year we have our 1st rd pick and Dallas's top 5 protected pick. So ideally we'd have the 1st overall and the 6th overall along with 2 2nd rd picks.
    I'm not sure there's a clear best player in the 2019 draft, Duke's Williams and Barrett are too close to call in my opinion, though Williams is the physical freak.

    The Hawks will get the #1 pick and draft someone from Tibet. I have no faith.

    Not as bad as Sam Perkins over Michael Jordan, but bad enough.

    They actually looked hung over tonight. It's got to be tough to get up for game after game when the point is probably to lose enough to get a high draft pick. I think we'll get a top 3 pick and a top 15 pick from Dallas and this head coach will be replaced as soon as the team looks strong enough to compete for a playoff spot.

    At least Sam Perkins could play. Marvin...not so much.

    I always wonder why Atlanta can’t put together a winning team being in the south. They could probably pull people off the street and field a better team, but I guess management/owners aren’t interested in winning.

    Depending on where teams end up I think we can have 3 top 15 picks this year. We have one conditional from the Mavs of they finish higher than 10th from last and another if the Cavs finish higher than 5th I believe. If the cards fall right we can certainly take a haul, but we need Zion Williamson first.

    I'd be fine with their other forward...can't call his name right now...can handle, shoot and run the floor pretty well from the few games I've seen him.

    Close, the Cavs pick is top 10 protected, the Mavs' is top 5 protected. I'll be close to shocked if we get The Cavs' pick, they are as back as Atlanta this year. I think it's likely we get The Mavs' 1st rd pick along with ours'.

    I misstated, Sam Bowie went ahead of Jordan at #2, Olajuwan went #1, MJ went #3.
    The thing bout the 2005 draft where The Hawks took Williams at #2, it was a horrible draft. Only Chris Paul will make The HOF from that draft, nobody else will come close. Not many teams end up taking the best player on the board, so it wasn't that bad of a pick considering how thin the field was.
