Big shoes to fill

What’s up, Sekou readers?

Hope you are all doing well. Thanks for your patience in waiting for this blog to get churning again. My name is Ken Sugiura, and I have the unenviable task of following up the master. Sekou, if you weren’t aware, took a job down the street at nba.com after five years of excellent Hawks coverage for the AJC. I’m not telling you anything you don’t know, but Sekou is a great guy, a great reporter and we will miss him plenty.

I’m going to be filling in on the Hawks until a full-time replacement is hired. I’ve got a good bit to learn, but I’m looking forward to it. As Sekou shared with me, it’s a good group to cover and the team, obviously, is on the way up. Hopefully it’ll be a fun ride, however long it lasts.

Anyway, I’m here for you guys, so fire any questions at me you’ve got, either on the blog or e-mail. I don’t have the wealth of NBA knowledge that Sekou does, but I’ll do my best to get you answers.

Enough blathering – on to the two-game trip to New York tonight and Boston Friday.

From Mike Woodson on down, the talk Monday and Tuesday was about defending better, which obviously will be a factor in both games, against the “Seven seconds or less” Knicks and then the three-headed monster in Boston.

Different guys were saying they need to get back to defending the way they did last year. The sample size for this season is small, obviously, but some numbers for comparison – 2008-09 – 96.5 points per game, 45.4 FG percentage from the field, 35.3 percent from three-point range. This year, 102.1, 46.0, 40.0.

One thing I heard a few different times was that the players aren’t doing a good job of communicating – calling out switches and the like.

Said Joe Johnson, “When we’re guarding our man and we’re supposed to switch, we’re not calling the switch. I think we’re assuming more than anything. It’s just guys not on the same page. Therefore, two guys are going on one man and another guy’s laying it up.”

Al Horford also mentioned the communication lapses, but added that “I think it comes down to effort.”

So, something to be watching for tonight (Wednesday) and Friday.

You may find this interesting …

Jamal Crawford, Jeff Teague and Horford all mentioned looking forward to playing at Madison Square Garden. For Teague, it’ll be his first trip. Horford said it’s probably his favorite place to play, citing the arena’s history.

Said Crawford, who played a little over four years there, “It’s like you’re on stage. … The court’s lit up and the crowd’s kind of dark. It’s like you’re on a stage performing. So it’s really cool.”

Crawford also mentioned that over his time there, he became friends with Knicks fans such as Spike Lee, Samuel L. Jackson, Adam Sandler and Fat Joe.

Said the rookie Teague of going on the road, “Flying from city to city, you’re getting on planes, carrying bags and having so much luggage. It was kind of difficult at first, but now I think I know how to pack a lot better. I took too much stuff last time.”

One big difference between college and NBA road trips: “No homework at all. That’s a good thing.”

Your take

Anyway, let me hear from you, readers – Is 1-1 a successful road trip? Woodson has mentioned multiple times that he wants the team to go .500 on the road, so he said that the West Coast plus Charlotte trip was good, because it was 2-2, despite the trip-ending disaster in Charlotte.

What do you want to see from the Hawks?

Well Ken, I guess you are the man for now huh. I wish you all the success in coverning the team in the interim. As for the hawks on this road trip, beating the knicks and boston would be a overwhelming successful trip, but to split and come home and win two in a row would give the hawks an 8-3 record which to me is excellent when they have played 6 out of the first 11 on the road.

The defense must step up and I think the problem is slow rotation to perimeter shooters, they are not rotating quickly therefore leaving for wide open uncontested 3’s, and that to me is a lack of effort more than anything. We will see over the next two games if that improves. And by the way Big ups to Sekou for all he did for us Hawks fans by keeping us fans close to the team and informed. Good luck Sekou on your new gig.

1-1 is a bad trip when one of the game is in NY.

Welcome Ken,
We are a hearty group of regulars on here. It won’t take long to pick up on that.
1-1 is the floor, “must be accomplished” 2-0 is fantastic, 0-2 is disaster.
Does that answer the question?
I still am less interested in the number of losses (I mean .500 on the road is acceptable) It is the way we lose that matters. If Boston beats us, so be it, but if we do one of our implosions with a 20 point beat down, well that is just….. sorry.

Having observed JJ most of his Hawks career, I must say that last week was just a slightly below average week for him.

He has been overlooked many times from the POW award when he deserved it. I’ll take it as a make up. Not sure why NBA skipped over marketing boy Wade who had a better week than JJ.

Last week, JJ was actually the 3rd best player in his own team. Both Josh Smith and Jamal Crawford had, arguably, the best, and unquestionably the smartest week of their careers.

I hope JJ learns from this and shares the goodies more.

Welcome Mr. Sugiura

The Hawks need to go 2-0 on this trip because of the opponents. The Knicks are a bad team so we need to contiue to beat the teams we should beat. The Boston Celtics have dominated us the last 2 years. We are 3-11 against them in that span including the playoffs. If the team is much improved show it by beating a contender on the road. Besides Boston has dominated you on the road and at home its time to get that mojo back. Show the world this team is serious about contending.

Welcome Ken and good luck with the blog..

As far as the games go I think we can go 2-0 but we have to play better defense. I just hope they don’t look past the Knicks in anticipation for the Celtics game. I also hope we don’t fall in love with the jumper tonight and attack the rim seeing how the Knicks play no defense and have no shot blockers. We should be able to get what we want at any time in the paint.

The Nicks has to be considered a must win with Boston an opportunity to pull an upset and shock the league. Are you going to join us during the games?

What was our record against the Nicks last year. If I remember right we split the series. This is our chance to pick up games over last years record on our way to 50+ wins.

We’ll go 2-0. I’m not worried about the Celtics. We better watch getting outscored by the Knicks. The Celtics had trouble beating us when we had no bigs on the bench and only Joe to defend. I expect a no holding back whine fest from the senior-celts.

agreed, hawks need to beat the celts… they can’t keep on making the excuse of “theyre just a better team”… i remember joe smith mentioning in an interview that they need to go out there believing that they can beat any time they face, so yeah, 2 for 2 please!

Hello Ken S.

What I desire to see from the ATL Hawks is a 2-0 road trip. Going 1-1 is okay. Just don’t want to see anymore blowouts and definitely don’t want the ATL Hawks to go 0-2.

I also wanna see the squad play as a team. Jamal Crawford should realize whether he’s in NY, Toronto, or the A Town he’s on a stage. Yep all eyes are on you ATL Hawks. Having mentioned stage, I don’t wanna see any showboating. You may get 50 points but if your team loses your fiddy points don’t mean a thang. Those fiddy points was all in vain. Surely don’t want to see individual pursuits placed above team goals.

Welcome to the blog, Ken. See if you can encourage Sekou to provide a ’so long’ blog so the bloggers can give him a proper sendoff.

While Woody would like .500 on the road and probably .750 at home, that would result in a 50 win season. It is a start but I believe we should have higher expectations now, especially when you consider the road the team has taken to get to this point.

Mz Hawkdafied, JC didn’t say anything Lebron, Kobe, and MJ didn’t say during their playing days? Everyone always call MSG the World Stage. That has nothing to do with attempting individual goals or anything like that. That’s just admitting the setting there is like no other anywhere else in the league. There is definitely not any other arena in the league that gets more media coverage around the globe more than MSG. So I have no problem with JC saying that. Also if JC decides to drop 50 on his old boys while shooting over 45% from the field doing it, I have no problem with that either.

Ramon, I don’t give a darn about LBJ, KB24, or D Wade and what they would say right now. I’m a Hawks fan and neither of those guys are on the Hawks squad. I’m just concerned with keeping the Hawks team oriented. Unless you think scoring 50 pts is better than winning the game. I don’t have a problem with him saying that either or dropping fifty point as long as the team wins. Ramon I am an NBA fan so I know all about the hoopla of Madison Square Gardens. The only info I wanna hear about MSG 2day is the Hawks defeated the Knicks.

Welcome aboard, Ken.

Hawks need to let JJ go this summer and go after D.Wade or LeBron. THey both know we are on the cusp of being the best team in the East. We just need a leader with more heart. They would both welcome playing here and it’s not out of the question

And watch J-Craw drop 35 tonight

Ramon

Mz Hawkdafied, do you not remember JC putting up 50 over Wade for a WIN? All of JC high scoring games don’t come in losses. The same way he used to hit Atlanta for 35 everytime we played.

With all of the salutations to KEN & KEN S, I thought everyone had found a newfound appreciation for me, and the fact I’m almost always right, ha,ha,ha.

So, a hearty welcome to the forum from me as well, namesake.

The Knicks gm is the most important one on this trip because it comes before a showdown with Boston, and would be easy for us to overlook. It’s always easy to get up for gms with top teams like the Lakers, Celtics, Calvaliers, Magic etc, while it’s easy to take teams like the Knicks for granted and get embarrassed. Beating teams like the Knicks, especially on the road, is a good way of improving both our road and overall record.

While our scoring average increased by 9PPG with Bibby’s arrival, our points allowed increased correspondingly by 9PPG. Our overall DEF play further deteriated when we started making DEF adjustments and changes to compensate for the overall effects of Bibby’s poor overall DEF. The 2 main adjustments were (1)having JJ play the quicker, faster elite PG’s, which took a toll on him physically, and (2 switching on every pick, which placed our frontline players in unreasonable mismatches with smaller, quicker and faster players. It also placed Bibby in mismatches with PG and Centers.

Naturally our overall DEF suffered, as one might expect. In fact, the DEF stats of certain individual players also suffered. Has anyone else noticed the increase in shotblocking and overall DEF of those same players as we have reduced our reliance on switching every play? Reducing Bibby’s MPG has reduced the need to compensate for his DEF shortcomings as much. It has also reduced the wear and tear JJ accumulates while having to guard the quicker, faster, more athletic PG’s Bibby can’t guard.

I’m looking forward to tonigts gm. We’re coming off a break of sorts, and should be fresh and ready to take of both the Knicks and Celtics. With JJ and Bibby as our starting guards, the Celtics DEF strategy has always been to pressure the ball and double JJ whenever he touches the ball. Boston has basically had Bibby’s number because they know he can’t beat anyone off the dribble, penetrate and breakdown their pressure DEF. However, now that we have Teague and Crawford on our team, it will be very interesting to see if they continue that DEF strategy with either of them in the gm.

thanks, all, for the greetings. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all better.
to answer a couple questions –
Hawksta – I’ve been at the AJC for 11 years, most of them spent in sports. I covered the Falcons for five years, Georgia Tech for one and most recently was a generalist. I would have mentioned it, but I didn’t think anyone would be that interested.

As far as what Crawford was saying, I don’t think he meant that he doesn’t play hard in other arenas or doesn’t realize he’s performing for fans. What he meant was that the arena lighting – with the stands darkened – made it feel like he was literally performing on a stage, as though in a play or concert.

hawksfan1 – haven’t seen the new traveling called. i’ll look more closely for it.

it sounds like you’ve all put the Knicks game in the bag, as would I, except for that it’s a road game and you never know. I don’t think, though, that the Hawks will be looking past this one. i think sunday off and two days of practice was refreshing for them.

KevinA – My plan is to be online during games, although I don’t have the system down like Sekou did. (I will have to miss tonight, though, because of an unavoidable circumstance.) Covering a game while blogging is new territory for me. (not complaining, just explaining.)

FYI, I should have a story about Josh Smith’s strong play thus far in Friday’s paper (should come online Thursday afternoon). Here’s a teaser quote from J-Smoove – “Now it’s coming all together for me. I still have a lot to learn, but I’m starting to figure a lot of stuff out.”

Al complains about effort. JJ complains about defense, Marvin Complains about defense. They must be complaining about Josh, Bibby, Teague and Jamal? Josh comments about unselfish play. Does he mean he wants the rock more?

5-2 and everybody is complaining. I like the fact the players feel they are under performing and can be better but what happened to the days of a bunch of great guys that had great camaraderie?

Is this about the changing roles with new teammates or a bad quarter against the Lakers and a bad game against the Bobcats. Hmmmmmm

Ramon

4:03 pm

Kevin, I don’t think Horford was speak on Josh when he said about effort. Accept for the couple of games where Smoove was in foul trouble, he’s been active on the defensive end. And I actually think the unselfishness Smoove was talking about was in regards to JJ. I think most of the lineup probably feel JJ is being selfish at the moment. I could see where very easily it could end up being JJ versus the rest of the lineup, if Joe isn’t careful. When a player says he wants to go to super star status, that usually means he’s going to need the ball more. But this team doesn’t need JJ to need the ball more, but to encourage more ball movement. JJ speaks about the team being selfish, but many times JJ has the ball for 7-12 seconds at a time. Does JJ actually think it is good team play on this roster, to hold the ball for more than 7 seconds when he know he can’t pass out of double teams? Matter of fact Josh is better at passing out of double teams than Joe is, and so is Horford.

Ken,

Welcome and good luck. I look forward to your coverage of the team and although I will miss Sekou, I hope you will bring a new, fresh perspective.

As for success on this trip, I would definitely consider going 1-1 on this trip a success after the hectic travel schedule that we have recently endured. As poor as this team has been on the road in this decade, I don’t take ANY road wins for granted.

I agree with Ken Strickland that the NY game is the more important game of the two (although I would LOVE to see us beat BOS). I think Woody’s goal of going .500 on the road requires that we learn to consistently beat teams like NY on the road.

I would like to see us go out and establish our D tonight and not get caught up in NY’s run and gun style. It is going to be VERY hard to resist playing at their tempo and that can be dangerous as any team can get hot on a given night. Not saying we shouldn’t run (we should definitely take advantage of their poor transition D) but we just need to play D, hit the boards and control the tempo.

Welcome Ken: Don’t worry about your wealth of knowledge…I’m quite certain there are those/we on this board who are willing to
“share the wealth.”

Ms Hawkdafied: No one is about “Team” more than myself. However, I think Jamal’s remark was fairly innocuous.

Rod: If you are truly Diesel, then I would like to see one of your Marv,
trades of the day, for Javale McGee, and work the #’s.

Why should we be content wi. a 1-1 rd.trip. Once again Woody; “I want to go .500 on the road.” Do you think the Lakers,Spurs,Celts, have that mindset ? NO! I imagine they feel as if they are gonna win each game, before tip-off. They do not build in an excuse. Do you really think the elite teams think .500 on the road and are satisfied with mediocrity ?
For Woody to set the bar that low is manure. Who was it who said:
“Shoot for the stars and if you fall short you still hit the moon” ?

Kevin, I forgot to answer your question, what happened to good team camaraderie is one world AGENTS! Look at Detroit, everyone thought they had a great camaraderie as a team, but agents craftiness lead to Big Ben thinking he should be more involved in the offense, which is the real reason he left (and not the money). It also lead to Larry Brown agents talking to Jim Dolan and Isaiah under the table while he was still coaching. Agents changed the games and players mentality.

Grandad- If you think that San Antonio, LA, Boston, etc… Go in to every game and road trip fighting at all costs then you don’t watch the NBA very much. You know this is an 82 game season, not 12 games. It is a grind. Teams work to manage minutes and bodies, esp. the teams you mentioned. You play trips like series in baseball. You know take 2 out of 3 etc… Now, as a fan I want my team to win every night of course. But, managing a teams emotions over an 82 game season requires a more realistic approach than just “give 110% everynight”. Clevland tried to prove something in the regular season last year, How did that work out?
No blow out losses and a split of these two games and we are fine.

Why complain about fans complaining about certain aspects of a 5-2 team when the players themselves are complaining?

Personally, I appreciate the fact we’ve made the playoffs 2 consecutive yrs, had our 1st winning season in a decade, earned the 4th seed and made it to the 2nd rd of the playoffs. However, I’m not willing to settle for recent accomplishments this yr. I want us to become a serious title contender, not maintain the status quo. To get to that level, we’ve got to start maximizing the utilization of our talented assets, rather than wasting time and energy catering too and compensating for their liabilities.

Ken Strickland,

As a carryover from the previous blog, I am DEFINITELY enjoying the debate and I like the way you are presenting your argument as well. We simply disagree about who should be our starting PG RIGHT NOW.

You ask why I ASSUME we would be worse with Teague starting since he is a better distributor/creator and since his A/TO ratio is better than Bibby’s right now despite the fact that he plays a more high risk/high reward style of PG. It’s not that I necessarily assume we would be worse, it’s that I KNOW we are having success with Bibby at PG. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

We don’t KNOW how Teague will play as a starter. Teams have not gameplanned for Teague as of yet because he has been such a minor part of our game plan. What happens when teams get tape on him? Will they sag off him, taking away the drive and make him prove he can hit an outside shot consistently? Will they post him up on D and make him defend the post? Will they run him off screens and make him prove he can defend at the NBA level? I would.

In addition, we don’t know if Teague and JJ will play well together or not. For whatever reason, they have spent VERY limited minutes (12.58 to be exact) on the court together so far. I can SPECULATE that it is because JJ has the ball in his hands a lot when he’s on the floor and it makes sense to have a shooter like Bibby out there with him. Maybe Woody tried them together in practice and it hasn’t worked well. Maybe Woody doesn’t want to disrupt the chemistry JJ and Bibby have. Could be a lot of reasons. I don’t know. But there is NO evidence at this point that Teague and JJ play well together.

Another thing I find interesting is that Crawford and Bibby are +39 in their 68 minutes on the court together. Crawford and Teague are +4 in their 58 minutes on the court together. I’m sure some of that has to do with who they were on the court with during those minutes but it is CLEAR that a Bibby/Crawford backcourt has been effective despite the apparent defensive limitations they would appear to have. I say that to say that Bibby’s ability to play well with both JJ and Crawford means that Teague’s minutes are likely to be limited as any 4th guard’s minutes would be in a similar situation.

As the season goes along, perhaps Teague will do something to warrant replacing Bibby as the starter. That hasn’t happened yet. Knowing Woody, if Bibby has to miss a start, he will start Teague rather than Crawford so as not to disrupt the rotation. I don’t think we will see Teague as a starter as long as Bibby is healthy.

Daniel: You proved my point – baseball> win 2 out of 3, okay… thats preferable over .500. You are correct I don’t watch much NBA other than the Hawks. My preference is the college game (hawks aside). But I have spent a professional lifetime laboring/learning/loving the greatest game on earth. I Most ‘Strongly Disagree’ that those aforementioned teams don’t make an effort @ attaining 100% effort every night: I refer
to the ‘08 Cetics, ‘86 Celtics, and didn’t the Bulls win 70+[the yr. escapes me] ? I cannot imagine Jordan, Bird, et al, not giving 100% on any given night. I realize it’s a marathon, not a sprint, however I’m talking about a mindset. BY the way the fellas are paid top dollar to perform EVERY night. Mickey Mantle once said:(about playing
hurt/injured) “I would hate to think that a fan traveled to see me play and it be the only opportunity in his/her lifetime and I sat out that game or I did not give my best.” Last point; if the Hawks mail
it in, we (on this board) will be the 1st to scream.

all the players say the same thing about MSG but i think the arena is overrated… who cares about New York or their arena. a lot of it is due to it being one of the last of the older arenas The Great Western Forum had the same Mystic and the old Garden in Boston. enough of that though… consistently ranked top 10 amongst world arenas, ‘The Highlight Factory’ is on the up and up. Pollstar Magazine ranked Philips Arena #1 concert and events venue in the United States. plus i think our playoff atmosphere is the most raucous in basketball (when we are on our game) just ask KG…
