  1. Mike Fratello to coach Ukrainian national team

    Feb 25, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    The Czar (of the telestrator) is headed to the old Soviet bloc. Mike Fratello, the former NBA coach and current TNT color commentator, will coach the Ukrainian national team at the European Championships this summer, according to the Associated Press. Hopefully they like slow it down, grind it out, defensive basketball that Fratello was known…

  2. Mike Bibby wants a buyout in Washington, likely to be disappointed

    Feb 25, 2011, 10:55 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    Atlanta did the right thing — they needed Mike Bibby gone and any other point guard in. Kirk Hinrich is an upgrade. But it’s easy to see why Bibby is unhappy — he went from the starting point guard on a playoff team to being John Wall’s understudy on a lottery team. Bibby wants a…

  3. Hawks trade for Kirk Hinrich

    Feb 23, 2011, 7:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Multiple sources are reporting that the Atlanta Hawks have agreed to trade Mike Bibby, Mo Evans, rookie Jordan Crawford, and a #1 pick to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. This deal fills an obvious need for the Hawks. Mike Bibby is still a sharpshooter, but he has contributed in…

  4. Lakers remind fans why maybe they shouldn’t worry so much

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:15 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Those looked like the Lakers everyone expects to see. The Lakers who showed up at Staples Center Tuesday night were up double-digits in the first quarter on a pretty good Hawks team. Those Lakers cruised to a 104-80 win. Those Lakers looked nothing like the ones that dropped three straight games at the end of…

  5. Ramon Sessions draws interest from Knicks, Hawks, Blazers

    Feb 17, 2011, 4:26 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    We’re members of the Ramon Sessions fan club. He’s not going to make you forget about Chris Paul, but he’s a quality point guard who plays within himself. He’s quick (clearly a lot quicker than Derek Fisher and Steve Blake after dropping 32 on the Lakers Wednesday), he’s good in transition and impressive on the…

  6. The Atlanta Hawks are a bit of a mess

    Feb 9, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    Even with their best player out of action, the Atlanta Hawks had no business being completely eviscerated by the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. Philly is a solid team, but Atlanta is supposedly superior. They’re supposedly worthy of their decent seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, even if their efficiency differential puts them just…

  7. Video: Get out of Al Thornton’s way

    Feb 6, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Al Thornton

    Al Thornton can get up. As proof, we bring you this. We should add that apparently Zaza Pachulia is not intimidating anyone from going to the rim. But this is one of the better dunks of the season. It might even crack Blake Griffin‘s top 10.

  8. Blake Griffin shows Al Horford he could start for Steelers Sunday, loses game

    Feb 5, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    In a development that’s certain not to spark useless debates between people regarding the words “excessive,” “soft,” and “good hard fouls,” Blake Griffin fouled the ever loving mercy out of Al Horford on a last second game-winning drive attempt. Griffin went straight up, kind of, rose both arms to block the shot, made a play…

  9. Marvin Williams and Shawne Williams receive suspensions for rough housing

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    So like we said, that fracas last night in the Knicks-Hawks game was was severe enough to land a few suspensions. The NBA has suspended Marvin Williams of the Hawks two games and Shawne Williams of the Knicks one game for ‘scuffling and tuffling’ as I like to imagine Clyde Frazier would say. The two…

  10. Hawks and Knicks have a throwdown

    Jan 29, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Atlanta Hawks

    Well, no one hit anyone in their junk, but turns out Celtics-Suns wasn’t the only dust-up Friday night. In the fourth quarter of the Hawks’ comfortable win over the Knicks, two players got tangled up, and punches were thrown. Now, having known that, what two players would you guess were involved? Wilson Chandler? Zaza Pachulia?…

  11. Report: Damien Wilkins signed by Hawks for rest of season

    Jan 28, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Damien Wilkins

    The Hawks didn’t bring in Damien Wilkins as a legacy, they brought him in because they thought he could play. And they liked what they have seen. The Hawks have signed Wilkins through the end of the season, according to a tweet from Marc Spears of Yahoo. Wilkins is the nephew of Hawks legend Dominique…

  12. Curiously, Jeff Teague remains glued to the bench

    Jan 24, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    Image (1) jeffteague.jpg for post 4251

    Jeff Teague is no star. He’s a second-year guard who isn’t great at initiating the offense, and isn’t much of a perimeter shooter. He isn’t the type of talent who demands playing time, but merely suggests it politely with each correctly executed possession. He makes mistakes, doesn’t often induce awe, and clearly has a lot…

  13. The Hornets beat the Hawks… no, we mean the Hornets really beat the Hawks

    Jan 22, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Hawks v Timberwolves

    This game changes nothing. That should be clear. The Atlanta Hawks were never contenders in anyone’s eye, not seriously, and this loss doesn’t preclude them from some insane, fueled by desire, special combination of events championship that happens once in a lifetime against all odds. It makes it less likely, because, well, who lets that…

  14. Latest scorekeeper snafu: Mike Bibby’s missing assist

    Jan 20, 2011, 4:56 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution noted a bit of a scorekeeping oddity in his practice report, which can be chalked up to simple oversight or collusion against the visiting team depending on how quickly you take to conspiracy theories. Those who made it through to the end of Miami and Atlanta’s slugfest on…

  15. Dunk of the night: Let’s not forget Josh Smith can throw it down

    Jan 19, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    The Atlanta Hawks can be so much fun in transition, you wonder why they play at the 23rd fastest pace in the league? In transition you get you get to see Atlanta create chances with their athleticism. Two parts of this dunk are impressive. Of course, there is Josh Smith of the Hawks running the…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where teams can’t hit the three but keep shooting them anyway

    Jan 19, 2011, 2:09 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    What you missed while wondering if banning a Dire Straits song makes any sense… Hawks 93, Heat 89 (OT): These two teams combined to take 61 shots from three on the night even though combined they made just 14 (23 percent). That kind of sums up this game — a lot of bad decisions and…

  17. Bosh out; LeBron and Wade likely in for Heat Tuesday

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is out for the Miami Heat Tuesday night against the Hawks, the result of a sprained ankle suffered against the Bulls. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are officially game time decisions, neither took part in shootaround, but according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman (of the Sun Sentinel) both are expected…

  18. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  19. Hawks, Bucks game snowed out

    Jan 11, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    U.S. South Hit By Crippling Winter Storm

    As we said might happen, due to unusually heavy snows that have essentially shut Atlanta down, the league has decided to postpone the Haws/Bucks game scheduled for Tuesday at Phillips Arena. The game has been rescheduled for March 15 Philips Arena in Atlanta. This is probably the smart move — last night the Bobcats hosted…

  20. Hawks may postpone game due to Atlanta weather conditions

    Jan 11, 2011, 12:18 PM EDT

    U.S. South Hit By Crippling Winter Storm

    Can you snow out a basketball game? Apparently it might happen in Atlanta, a city that usually gets a dusting of snow each winter but has been hit with a legitimate blizzard the last 24 hours. That has led the Hawks to consider postponing their scheduled game Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to…

  21. Is a triple-double worth running it up? The Ibaka-Hawks conundrum

    Jan 2, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    New Year’s Eve, the Thunder managed a solid win against the Hawks, and were up 101-92 with less than 24 seconds remaining. Game over, baby. Except that Russell Westbrook was one assist shy of a triple-double. Serge Ibaka leaked out in transition, caught an outlet, and dunked it home, making it 103-92. Okay, Ibaka was…

  22. Marvin Williams may miss west road trip for Hawks

    Dec 30, 2010, 2:40 PM EDT

    marvin_williams

    The Atlanta Hawks are heading west for four games but Marvin Williams will be visiting the MRI machine back in Atlanta instead. Williams will be out for the start of the trip according to a tweet from Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He has what is officially being called a bruised lower back…

  23. Atlanta’s point guard conundrum

    Dec 28, 2010, 10:27 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    At Summer League, the Atlanta Hawks coaching staff was trying to pump Jeff Teague full of confidence — he could be the starting point guard for the Hawks if he would just take the job away from Mike Bibby. He needed to find his dog. The job is available because the Hawks have a problem…

  24. Larry Drew latest in long line of coaches to talk shot selection with Josh Smith

    Dec 28, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith’s unwavering confidence in his midrange jump shot is to be admired — he sticks with it in the face of all available evidence that he shouldn’t take it. There is something impressive about that stubbornness. In the Atlanta Hawks six games before Monday night Smith has taken 33 shots from beyond 15 feet…

  25. Lakers’ Devin Ebanks among three sent to D-League around NBA today

    Dec 27, 2010, 5:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

    The trend of NBA teams using the D-League like a real minor league — which it is but wasn’t really used like it — continues with three more NBA players under rookie contracts being sent down for seasoning Monday. The biggest name is Devin Ebanks, the Lakers second-round pick who has played in 12 games…
