Enjoy this as a light hearted....ahhhh, if they only knew....breath-mint of a entry.
NBAOffseason had a throwaway comment about the Hawks not being strong enough interiorly.This is 100 percent arrived at by the Vince Carter buckets against the Magic Monday night.
Are the Hawks a legitimate contender in the East? Not until they prove they can stop Vince Carter from getting to the basket - twice! - in the last 75 seconds of a close game. Normally, all it takes to keep Vince out of the paint is a glare from the opposing big man, or if someone simply whispers "Hard foul" into his ear. Maybe Beardo Vince Carter is a different breed of Vinsanity, but it's more likely that the Hawks are seriously short on interior toughness.
Ummmm....league leading shot blocker and one of the best defensive big men in the game plus the games arguably #1 rough/tumble center AND the new look Jason Collins? Surely they jest....or at least they should be.
