Since the Hawks eliminated his Magic on Thursday, Orlando point guard Jameer Nelson has some free time on his hands.

The Hawks would like him to spend it watching Game 1 of Atlanta's second-round series against the Chicago Bulls.


Nelson
Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche announced on Twitter on Monday that he was leaving two tickets for Nelson after the Magic guard was caught telling Bulls star Derrick Rose "catch you in the second round" after the two teams met on April 10.

"Things that make me happy about this job," Triche said on Twitter. "Taking a page out of [former NFL coach] Jerry Glanville's book, I think I'll follow through on Jameer's request to catch Derrick Rose in the 2nd round."

At the time of Nelson's boast -- heard while Rose was being interviewed on ABC -- Atlanta and Orlando's first-round matchup had already been determined. The Hawks eliminated Orlando in six games with an 84-81 victory in Atlanta on Thursday.

The result was a reverse of last year's second-round series, when the Magic routed the Hawks by an average of more than 25 points in a four-game sweep.

"They never give us a chance," Josh Smith said after Thursday's victory. "They never talk about the Hawks. They talk about Orlando, Chicago, Boston and Miami. We're always sneaking under the radar."

The Hawks' best-of-seven series against the top-seeded Bulls kicks off Monday night at 8:00 p.m. ET.

Just to lighten the mood a little

Apparently, I wasn't the only one to find Nelson's comments to be newsworthy.


I started a thread on whether that comment was a big deal.

LMAOOOOO! What is Jameer supposed to say,we are not going to make it pass the first round? It was one of those "in the moment" type comment,that should be taken with a grain of salt.

Why do y'all say Nelson feels dumb? Would you rather him say "dang man, too bad we won't make it out of the first round"?
