Charles Big Mouth Barkley should be ban from doing any further Hawk games in the future.
He hates watching the hawks play and I hate hearing his loud mouth negatives. It totally was not professional.

Why would you wish Wade and LeBron played in order for the team to play with urgency? The fact that you discuss what needs to be done with your team and they go out and do the opposite tells me they have tuned you out! Let’s face it, Barkley and Miller had alot of valid points about this team. Last night’s game proved to me that the team needs to be shaken up, whether through some type of trade or new coach.

At least Charles tells it like it is!

Reggie Miller: “This is a black eye for the Hawks”

Sir Charles: “And I wish i could punch them in the other eye”

CLASSIC!

They let their guard down…..Mental break down from Key Players.

What he really means is they don’t have any heart or desire.

Please do what I do…..don’t go or go for free if you get a ticket, then buy food and a few beers in the CNN mall, and don’t spend a dime at the game.

If all do that soon the Spirit will go bankrupt, and we can get them out of town !

Joe Johnson and Jeff Teague have killed us the last two games. Jeff Teague has been killing us not only with the missed free throws but he was 2 for 8 against the Bulls and 1 for 12 against the Heat. Joe Johnson hasn’t been much better, 3 for 17 against the Bulls and 7 for 20 against the Heat. Also, their defense against Chalmers was embarrassing. If you want to know the reason why we lost those two games there it is.

Some of you will think whatever Charles Barkley tells you to think. Baa. Baa. Baa.

Just blow this team up. I can’t stand anyone on the team. Really, if that can be done, then just get Josh, Al, Joe, Marvin, and Teague out of here. I’m done waiting on these guys to be different. They can’t do it. They simply can’t.

Time to start over. I am beyond sick of watching those guys play.

Disapointed in the outcome, still need a guy that can be trusted to hit big buckets and drain free throws at the end of the game.

Love me some Ivan “THE TERRIBLE” Johnson last night though. Beast Mode!

Hawks did a fantastic job getting to the line last night, they just wasted it when they got there, and it was brick city all night from the field.

These are the players we get. This is the outcome of leaving GM’s who have bad ideas in place too long. When we had the opportunity to draft stars… we blew it.

So, it’s up to Joe Johnson to be the player he’s paid to be in the 4th Quarter and OT….. yeah, maybe be better than Shane Battier in the 2nd OT guy for 120 million.

The NBA has sucked for 15 years. These guys cant even shoot 70% from the free throw line. Not just the Hawks but the Heat too. How you can say this is a good product when some dude whos been playing in China comes out and out hustles and out pruduces ALL of your starters. Give me a break.

I really think people are misunderstanding Barkley’s comments.

He wants to see a team compete, like all of us as fans do. The Hawks are a better team than they showed the last two nights, Barkley knows that and he is frustrated with them just like all of us.

Dont get it twisted, Barkley is not the only guy to bash the Hawks on TV. Everybody does it. These Hawks have been together 5 years almost and they continue to their ways. Its just time to break it up.
What us fans should already know:

Nothings going to happen until ASG is gone.

LD is an ok coach, but NOT the guy.

JJ – Even Reggie Miller and Barkley said you dont give JJ 120 million. He is just your Avg Joe which he showed us again last night.

Josh Smith – How does this guy still take the shots he takes and still be called a captain? Only under Larry Drew, he is scare of Josh.

Jeff Teague – How many FT’s has this guy missed in the last couple days? Isnt he a PG??? Also, does he ever finish when he is at the rim??
And he just looks lost out there some times.

Al – All this guy wants to do is shoot jumpers as well. The commentators pointed that out last night, but we all know he is not a center, but ASG/Sund/Drew thinks he is.

Ivan Johnson, Green and T-Mac all played well and im hoping they can keep it up.

Overall, if they make the free throws both night, they are 6-1 and sitting on top of the conference.

This team will check out as soon as things start to go wrong and Barkley is only saying what we should know folks, they are soft with glass chins. IT IS WHAT IT IS!

You know, I don’t normally like to come on here and post my opinion… Much more of a loyal fan and observer of blogs…

My only question is how many guys stayed afterward and shot free throws?

The answer to that question would say alot about the mental makeup of this team…. If they were passionate about winning, they would have… Wake up fellas… You (the Atlanta Hawks) don’t scare anyone…

Oh, and LD…. I think anyone could have a field day with you…

Have a great day bloggers

Im not going to make excuses ….flat out it was a bad loss. Last year this was a blow out win for the heat. One thing I can say. The hawks do need to develop some mental toughness to close out the better teams in the East but clearly we all can see they can at least play with the big boys of the east. Im not going to pile on like some of these other so-called hawk fans. Keeping it in prospective…cannot get this game back…move on…the season is still young. They will see the heat in the playoffs.

Superior: I’m with honest_abe, really? let me tell you something my friend the numbers don’t lie. When he penetrates he looks to finish himself 70% of the time but he has not finished consistently at the rim and he has not made the free throws when he gets to the line. He is not a good shooter either from outside. I am big fan of Teague but he has not played to his capabilities the last two games. Now, your response is typical of someone that has no basis for his opinion only his distorted view. Again, the numbers never lie (you do understand numbers, don’t you?)

Also, Barkley. I have absolutely no respect for Barkley anymore. The guy just absolutely slammed the hawks the entire game. Talking about the playoff football games this weekend. Disrespectful. While he did have some valid points in his assessment about the hawks he offered no constructive criticism. He speaks as if the hawks are lottery bound.

What Charles said may be the truth, but i don’t want to hear his negative rants for the entire broadcast. How about some unbiased commentating and breakdowns of plays.

He was way over the top with his one-sided criticism. This is the team that beat Lebron Wade an Bosh at Miami. Attack their play but why attack their character and the organization as a whole. It may be the truth but to rant for the entire game is unprofessional. Make the game entertaining to watch, add some value to the game with some insights. Dont just rant the entire time.

Just once I’d like to see Barkley’s big mouth get big a$$ in a jam…say if TNT were to make him do games in Atlanta once a week – on radio – and for Weight Watchers to replace him with, say, Warren Sapp…then maybe the prik might see what ’scam’ really is – him.

I think the telling comment from Charles was the fact that the Hawks put a starting five on the floor that are all alike in their talents. No one is bad, they are just good, but do the same type of things on the floor. No one stands out and it makes for a very mediocre team. They have reached a plateau and are not really capable of rising above that certain level. No great shot maker, no great defender, no great rebounder, just everyone kind of doing the same thing at the same level of talent. More than a little depressing.

In reference to Chuck’s comment in the video- I can’t stand to hear chuck announce a game. He turrible!! I thought it was an episode of “Open Court” on Nba TV where five old “has been” sit around and talk about what they use to do. He and Reggie stating that they could play better than the Hawks right now. It reminded me my Uncle Scooter and and his friend Bay Bay bragging about how they use to run the ladies back in the day. Now all they to is run to bathroom. How can a network employ such a bias person “as Chuck” to do games. He was not on “Inside the Nba” he was announcing a game in which should remain somewhat fair in his comments. A Nba game is not a reality show. He needs to realize that he is not the star of the broadcast the players are.
Eventhough some of the commens he made about our beloved Hawks are true. I admit grudgingly!!!!

FTPB,

Doc,

You will appreciate this.

During the Arthur Blank interview on 790 a couple days ago, he said that when it comes to the Falcons, it’s not about money. It’s about winning a championship, and that players and fans know that he will do anything in his power to help his team attain that goal.

Last night during the broadcast, one of the analysts made a similar point, in that the Miami Heat have championship aspirations, whereas the Hawks don’t.
