    Good luck with that salary room. Maybe NBA 2K (or if we had the Nets owner).

    but it certainly wouldn't be "spur" like lol. Dwight howard is as far away from tim Duncan as you can be (personality wise)

    Dwight and Smith (with Rondo) is a fan dream. Would love to know where the consistent offense will come from with that team, not including the great free throw shooting.

    with that team it would be time to check ego's and say look guys... we worked magic to get you all together... there's so much potential and talent to do great things for years to come... how about taking a slight pay cut (a la Miami)... i hate bringing up the Heat bullish... and its a lot easier to say being in my position.. but you play to win championships... so in my eyes I'd take a pay cut because the ring is the thing, i can live quite comfortably on the multi millions

    at the end of your career what did you accomplish? a max contract on a mediocre team? or ring(s)? you can't tell me there's ONE single nba player who would rather have a "max deal" over the title of "NBA Champion"

    Dwight and Smith are the only 2 that could take a "pay cut" in what they are asking, and I highly doubt Dwight will when he can get max and play with a star already in Houston, or go to Dallas where the owner will make a Rondo/Dwight/Dirk trio happen if needed.

    People seem to be forgetting where our GM and Coach came from and how they have been taught to build an NBA championship roster. There is nothing recently that has happened with the Hawks franchise to even come close to being a respected winning franchise, so I say let Ferry/Bud get their vision going and hopefully don't bash them as they build the team the way they think it should be built if we don't get the Dwight and Friends squad. Hoping only makes the truth worse if Howard signs elsewhere. Recently we have let go of the old Hawks ways (Zaza, Ivan, etc) in favor of Ferry's Spurs-like vision (drafting international, hard working players). Either it's a youth movement and a foundation to a new Hawks, or some NBA 2K Dream roster is about to happen and these picks are stashed overseas (2 1st round picks?). Just don't get your hopes up if the "dream" doesn't happen as I am personally looking forward to the future of the Hawks.

    I agree. I think the hawks would like to sign howard, but they wont give in to any type of demands that hey may have... such as trading for rondo or resigning smith.

    This franchise had a chance to be special, then it F'd up with missing on drafting both CP3 and DWill. People forget that it took some down years, a couple of nice draft selections, and player development to put this franchise in a position that it was almost special (Hawks went on a nice run though). Now all of sudden you got these fantasy league players posting like Rome was built in a night. Last thing this team needs to do is spend money, just cause it has cap space. Ferry does not need to setback this franchise like Joe Dumars did when he overpaid some guys just to try to make a splash. Take Howard out of the equation, is there any group of guys that the Hawks can sign this Summer that would even be as good as the team of the last couple of years..HELL NAW. Jefferson, Iguodala, etc;..CHILD PLEASE. A.I. is best served as being the 3rd best player on a contender, not no 1st or 2nd option that's gonna put a franchise on his back. No need to "landlock" this team with guys with inflated salaries that are gonna battle for a lower-tier seed, just to be put out the second rd. Folks be patient and let the man work, the process has just begun..

    Well it took an eternity, but I agree with Slugger. AI would be a good signing in conjunction with Howard. But by himself, I'll pass.

    I'm sorry man... I completely understand where you guys are coming from and most of the time I'm all about waiting things out... but I've been a fan for far too long and i need to see some major results... It seems like we've been rebuilding since Nique left... It's always the same with my teams always coming up short or taking too long to get where they need to be...

    Falcons: FINALLY on the verge of accomplishing the ultimate prize
    Braves: ONE championship with all those division titles
    Hawks: well.....
    UGA: .....

    moving on...

    I'm never jumping ship, and they'll be my teams if they never win another game... but it's time to go hard or go home... I'm not banking on the lottery, to hell with Wiggins, no way we have a shot at him... I don't want to continue to rebuild and stay in the basement or NBA purgatory any longer... Just call me J G Wentworth "It's my money, and I want it NOW!" lol

    sorry guys... just had to let that out
