Atlanta Hawks: Draft mockery (UPDATE: Hawks trade with Nets, get Crawford)

UPDATE: The Hawks selected Texas forward Damion James with the No. 24 pick and traded him to the Nets for the second of their first-round picks (No. 27 overall) and their second-round pick (No. 31). The Nets selected Jordan Crawford for the Hawks at No. 31.

More updates later. . . .

I scoured the Interwebs to find some mock drafts for your consumption. This is also the place for my blog people to talk amongst yourselves as the night unfolds. I’ll be holed up at Centennial Tower waiting for the Hawks’ decision-makers to pick their guys before emerging to explain themselves, but I will checking in on your comments.

So think positive thoughts and hope your Hawks buck recent trends and find a gem late in the first round. . . .

Oklahoma City is going to win a championship in the next 3 yrs. And just like the Lakers bet we’ll be that team that gave them the missing piece (Pau Gasol). And how ironic that we drafted Gasol too. Just a line of geniuses running this organization (into the ground).

Solomon Alabi just went off the board.

If the Hawks are going to pick a big man now, it’s between Zoubek and Art Parakhouski.

Man all these players leaving early is killing the NBA.
Draft would be a lot better if some of these players were proven, 90% of the picks are based on potential.

NBA should do like NFL at make them wait at less 3 years after HS. I liked the day when player were good before they were drafted.

Crap, half these players are not that good (yet). not good for NBA

If ASG does not sell this franchise, we will have to experience this same crap over and over. SOMEONE PUHLEEZE BUY THIS TEAM!!!!!

Having to sell a draft pick is so embarrassing! ASG must be a joke around the league. If you cannot fund a team, get OUT OF THE BUSINESS, you jerks!!

Well this was a rollercoaster of a draft for the Hawks. Tense in the beginning…everyone got excited by the trade…then these nicompoops sell the first pick in the second round and go for ? with the last pick.

Its so hard to support this team with moves like this. We take a guy who wasnt even good in some league I never heard of. Is BK still making the picks?

We got Pape Sy. Is Stanley Robinson that freakin’ bad?

I sure hope Pendergraft and his scout minions prove me wrong….

At least we got Jordan Crawford and the original tape of him dunking on Lebron. We can sell that on E-bay and it will give the ASG even more money.

So what are the Hawks going to do about size issues and replacing JJ (assuming he leaves) now?

Insert Jamal Crawford as starter and Jordan Crawford as his back up?
