Rick Sund, I said it.

Hello all.

 

Former Sonics fan here. I have followed the Hawks pretty closely this year as I recently moved to ATL. My impression of the Hawks, as someone who is genuinely interested in seeing them succeed, but not a die hard fan, is that their talent level far exceeds their on the court performance. I am not going to get into specifics, but I want to point out that the Hawks have a very deep problem that extends deeper than Woodson or Smith- Rick Sund.

Sund is a complete idiot. His saving grace his entire career was the Gary Payton and scraps for Ray Allen and scraps deal. Ray Allen was about 7 years younger and entering his peak years while Payton was well off of his. I will grant him that this was a great deal.

Nevertheless Sund managed to completely destroy the Sonics. The worst thing about him was his drafting, a feature you Hawks fans have yet to see.

While the writing may or may not be on the wall for Woodson, don't expect to see your team get any better. Go take a look at Sund's last THREE drafts for Seattle and see if there is one name there you even recognize. The best players this guy has ever drafted were Nick Collison, Luke Ridnour, and Vladimir Radmanovich. In other words, the best he has ever done is find a solid bench player. He has a huge thing for his own guys too. Wherever he goes you will find Flip Murray and Early Watson, so expect him to just bring his guys in instead of the guys you really need.

There is nothing worse than a bad GM because it means you get worse year after year. Expect to be back in the lottery shortly.
