    He has had a career transformation in Phoenix. He was once labeled the worst NBA player during his Bulls days. He was best known for his sideline dancing with Russell Westbrook.

    Cameron Payne has been pretty nice lately in the postseason.

    When I shared the tweet about John Collins walking it wasn’t aimed at anyone!  I have been seeing or hearing Hawks fans talking about letting him walk.  I think all of us involved are on the pay da man train!!

    Hawks have done an excellent job drafting and developing talent under TS.  Im in the keep Collins and pay him something less than the max.  Also this postseason made me believe we dont really need to gut the team to bring in another star.

    It's the guard or SF responsibility to put a body on Connaughton so our bigs can secure the rebound, that's where it starts.

    I would point out that Lopez getting all those points was mostly due to our inability of our guards and wings to contain the perimeter, so our bigs would leave to help, Lopez rotates for an easy dunk.
    This further emphasizes the point we need our wings to be on the perimter and not in the paint at PF as a help defender. Ergo Hunter at SF.

    He did have Embiid putting a 275lb shoulder into him every game for 7 games. But like I said, Embiid ain't going anywhere, and JC is one of the best bigs in the league at playing help D. Just can't agree with Hunter at PF

    The difference in touch between OO and Capela is pretty stark. Capela bricks so many open layups and putbacks as an 8 year man, meanwhile OO is a rookie hitting floaters and push shots.
    He's going to be so good in a few years.

    The difficulty in that is the Trae Young codundrum. You can't play a switching defense. Nate as interim-head coach coached Hunter for maybe 10 games, Reddish for 6 games (Regular season and playoffs) so I'm not sure how much can be gleaned from that.
    As Nate has said, he didn't change much from Pierce's offense and defense, he just made tweeks, I expect with a full offseason and training camp we'll see some modifications to those schemes.

    The reason I disagree with your last point is because we are going to have to go through the Giannis's and AD's of the world if we want to win a chip.
    We have a huge frontline with Capela/Collins, both are good defenders, and yet Embiid and Giannis still dominated us.
     
    Did you see the points in the paint the Bucks were getting on us? ****, even Brook Lopez was looking like Hakeem for a game. I don't think downsizing is the move, especially considering JC can space the floor and shoot on offense.

    For next season, I would love to see more deliberate offensive plays run for Okongwu.  Let him be a rim running PnR big like JC was his first season. He also has a freethrow line pushshot that is worth exploring. I'm thinking have OO play more PF on offense.
    Play Gallo as the stretch big at C in lieu of post ups.

    I really like the Giddey kid from Australia.  6’8, very long for a PG which will help defend, incredible vision, hunts for the assist, nicely ambidextrous on both shooting and passing, greatly improved shooting (went over 40% from 3 last half of season), and is only just about to turn 19.  Would be the perfect fit IMO, and should be there at 20.

    Sorry dude but this lineup:
    Trae-Reddish-Hunter-Collins-Capela
    is better than this lineup:
    Trae-Bogi-Reddish-Hunter-Capela
    in SO MANY more ways.  Like it’s not even close defensively, and offensively our entire scheme has to change unless you think Capela running screens for Trae PnR’s to Hunter is the best use of Hunter (hint: it’s not).
    Alley-oops to Hunter = dumb.
    Hunter running picks = dumb.
    Capela by himself in the paint = dumb.
    Capela running screens leaving only Hunter in the paint = moronic.
    Just so much stupid about this idea.
