Training Camp Practice Report – Day 2

Wednesday, October 2, 2013
By Jaryd Wilson

Day 2 of Hawks Training Camp in Athens was full-speed ahead as Mike Budenholzer continues to implement his system, and a team with many new faces continues to gel.

Coach Bud says defense was again the focus today.

“Today we looked to build on the first good day (yesterday),” he said after practice.  I think we did that.”

Coach Bud continued to stress defense, as that will be the main building block for a team identity.

“It was hard,” Jeff Teague said of today’s practice.  He said they did a lot of full-court activity and turned up the intensity.

Al Horford also spoke to today and kindly reminded the Georgia-based media that he has never lost a game in Athens (his Florida Gators were undefeated at Stegman Coliseum).

The Hawks have one more day of practice tomorrow before heading back to Atlanta.

    I think I’m going to like this basketball team and I think Danny Ferry is heading in the right direction. It’s up to coach Bud to create a winning atmosphere and to utilize his players to build team chemistry.

    The hawks never had 2 “go-to guys”(Bird/McHale, Magic/Kareem, Dr J/M.Malone, MJ/Pippin, Olajuwon/Drexler, Duncan/Robertson, Shaq/Kobe, LeBron/Wade) who could strike fear into the hearts of their opponents.

    Well, with Paul Millsap teaming with Al, the hawks now have 2 “go to guys” capable of competing at a high level and capable of helping their team maintain leads down the stretch….accourse Al Horford will need to increase his shot attempts around 16 and Paul Millsap around 18 a game.

    I can’t wait to see what Dennis Schroder can do….the kid has a heart of a champion.
