60 Games In HD!

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Fox Sports South and SportSouth announced today that they will be broadcasting 60 Hawks games in HD this season. Know what that means? Time to break out that rainy-day fund and get that new HDTV you’ve been craving. As Ferris Beuller once said, “It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly... »

Hawks Exercise Option On Horford

Monday, October 12th, 2009

In news that probably doesn’t surprise anyone, the Hawks have picked up the 2010-11 option on Al Horford. Big Al (who’s now on Twitter!) has been an anchor down low for the Hawks for the past two seasons, and hopefully will be for years to come. Horford and company fell to the Detroit Pistons... »

Preseason Off To A Good Start

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

A lot to like about last night’s 108-102 preseason-opening win over the New Orleans Hornets. The starters played well together, there were plenty of minutes for the reserves, and no one got hurt – that’s about as good as it gets for an exhibition. In particular, I liked a few things: - I liked... »

Starters Asserting Themselves In Scrimmage Action

I was out of town over the weekend, so I didn’t see any of the scrimmaging yesterday at training camp. I understand the action was fast-paced and competitive, with Jamal Crawford scoring a basket late in OT to give the subs a victory over the starters.

Day 3 – Can We Scrimmage Already?

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

There is a good reason why fans aren’t allowed to come to training camp, and it has nothing to do with being a distraction to the players or perhaps giving away the team’s secrets. It’s because training camp is boring. Yeah that’s right, I said it. I want to see some scrimmages! I want... »
