Atlanta Hawks at Spurs: Game thread

I’m not in San Antonio and neither is Chris Vivlamore. Bob Rathbun is there and he says Kirk Hinrich will play.

Here is a place for you to discuss the game. I will post my two cents when it’s over.

Michael Cunningham, Hawks beat

Have to put Hinrich down as “most-likely- to-be-traded”. I would almost be willing to bet on it.

By the way, I stood right next to Hinrich at the open practice. He is really small and has very little definition. Not surprised he gets hurt so often. Looks like a good gust of wind would knock him over.

The guy is a good player, though. I like him.

FTPB,

Najeh,

Last year, it was M-V-Teague. This year, it should be M-I-P. I’m on the bandwagon too.

Let me be the first to call total bullsh#t on the above Al, Joe, Marvin, Josh, Teague story. Have no doubt that the entire story never happened.

If Kirk plays well, his trade value will increase. But if he plays well, Rick and the ASG will use that as an excuse to keep him.

Why? One reason being trading him would more than likely force them to pick up extra salary for next year (I dont think there are many good deals where Kirk can be traded for another expiring).

Sorry Najeh, As much as I like the deal, I dont think Kirk for Kaman will happen.

I really hope in a week or so we start Kirk at the off guard and Joe at the 3……..Hinrich has been able to guard people like Wade in the past.

“As much as I like the deal, I dont think Kirk for Kaman will happen.”

Doesn’t have to be Kaman. The three way Kirk trade I’ve been posting with the Lakers sending a pick to the 3rd team allows them to get pretty much anyone on any team, including several players who make less than Kirk this season and/or are expiring. Sund just has to get creative.

If you guys watched Kamen play for a few weeks straight, you would not want him on the Hawks. Just do not understand the infatuation with that guy.

Shop Kirk, Marvin, and possibly Al for an upgrade in the middle….

Haven’t beaten this team since 97 on the road??????????????????????????????

P-a-t-h-e-t-i-c! Stupid does repeat itself?

Cant beat this team on the road you dont belong in an ECF!!

I’d rather see Zaza on Duncan and Josh on whoever plays center for the Spurs (Blair or Splitter). That lets Josh play help defense and doesn’t force him to guard someone who is 3 inches and 30 pounds bigger than him.

“If you guys watched Kamen play for a few weeks straight, you would not want him on the Hawks. Just do not understand the infatuation with that guy.”

He’s better than Collins (in my opinion also better than Zaza), rebounds well, blocks shots, and his contract is expiring. I have almost exclusively limited my discussion of possible big man trade targets to people with expiring contracts.
