The Atlanta Hawks have had its best season ever so far, poised to win 60 games and make a deep playoff run. But people insist on using the past playoff history to totally write the team off. Is that fair or is in just the facts? One era was Nique`s, couldn't get past Jordan, Bird, Pistons. The other era is more recent, a younger Al, different coaches, and despite having talented, still exited in either the first or second round for 7 years straight. What makes this year different? Call in and talk about
Over the past 3 years the Atlanta Hawks have undergone a major transformation. Money and production didn't translate with Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams, so they were removed from team. Josh Smith was not traded, his contract ran out and he signed with another team, which also couldn't trade him and they waived him, in which he signed with another team that right now are borderline wanting to cut him. Drafting of players has improved tremendously. In 2013 the Hawks hired a new coach, a pupil of Popovich in San Antonio. Despite losing their top player and many others for a total of 180 games to injuries, Hawks made the playoffs for the 7th straight year and almost beat the then number one seed Indiana Pacers. So far this year, the Hawks are leaders in the Eastern Conference and Southeast Division. They have the best winning percentage against teams over .500 in the NBA. They have one of the best offenses and defenses in the NBA. They have one of the best home and road records in the NBA. Yet, people still do not want to count them as a "legitimate" team, despite beating (handling) other so called legit teams. Why is this?
That will be main topic tonight, feel free to chime in.
On the eve of the NBA Playoffs, the Hawks have been resting starters, getting injured players back, and doing a great job of reinstituting all the habits that put them on top of the Eastern Conference. But you still have doubters. You have people saying the Bulls will come back and win. Most everybody says the Cavs are the top seed. People say Golden State are a shoe in to win even tho the Spurs are still playing basketball. How do you feel? What reasons do you have that the Hawks are indeed the favorites to win it all? Call in, listen in, talk.
The regular season doesn't matter. People keep saying that. Yet, you have several teams in the west and east that are battling for a playoff spot, every regular season game mattering. So what will it mean to the Hawks when they clinch the division and conference before April? What will the new injuries to the Hawks mean over the next 6 weeks?
The Crew will discuss the owner of the Atlanta Hawks owner sending Danny Ferry emails that spoke of the minorities attending Hawk games, only wanting white cheerleaders, removing hip-hop music from home games and much much more. Plus Ray Rice getting fired from the Ravens and then the NFL banning him indefinately; does Rice have the right to sue the NFL and Ravens for double jepordy? Did he lie to the team and NFL officials? Does this serve him right for what he did to his now wife? All that and more this Thursday at 8pm on the FSP Crew Show.

Whether or not Falcons win or not, should there be a coaching change made now, later or never? UGA proved they have some depth, but is the program doomed long term? Is there a particular reason the Kansas City Royals are better than the Atlanta Braves? Atlanta Hawks have to wait 4 hours for their box scores to appear on NBATV, what's all that about?? This and more will be discussed on tonights show. Call in, participate, especially Atlanta Hawks Nation.
I will be discussing NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's role in the Ray Rice domestic violence fiasco as well as the hot mess that is the Atlanta Hawks with Chris Loupe and The Yard/HBCU Sports' Duane Nash. Among the questions to be answered:
1) Should Roger Goodell's ass be fired for bungling the Ray Rice case?
2) Should the Baltimore Ravens be held accountable?
3) Was Atlanta Hawks' owner Bruce Levenson's email racist or more about business?
4) What in the hell was Danny Ferry thinking?
Would you work with Danny Ferry after hearing the comments that were made?
Does Danny Ferry's accomplishments overrule what he has done?
Do you think Adam Silver should get involved? (even though Bruce Levenson is selling his controlling share?)
Will the players and fans be able to overcome this situation?
Do you think that this is the first time the Atlanta Hawks organization is experiencing this situation or was this the first time one of the owners spoke up about the racist comments?
Should Danny Ferry lose his job?
How should the Atlanta Hawks' players handle the situation?
There is still money on the table, still possible moves to be made, what's next? Where do Hawks stand in East with Love going to the Cavs and Rose looking healthy and Paul out for season with Indy? Falcons play this week, but Hageman is lost for 6-8 weeks. Can anything be done to limit injuries in pre-season?? Braves are, well, done. What can they do next year? Call in, speak your thoughts if you don't agree with what everybody else says.
