Time for me to dream. If there was one player i think that would put the Hawks over the top and even make them contest against Cleveland for the best record in the league, it would be Billups. I know right now Denver would not deal him but just imagine if we had gotten him when he was being shopped by the Pistons for expiring contracts?
He would be Woody's dream point guard. On offense , he can do all the things that Bibby does and more i.e pass, score,run the offense and also be effective without dominating the ball. Joe needs to dominate the ball to be effective so a point guard like Chris Paul that needs the ball to be effective might not be a good pair with Joe.Heck he can even score by backing down his defender ( which Bibby cannot do due to his size).
Oh and he is a 6ft 4 point guard !! Woody can "Switch ALL "on D with minimal mismatches.!I Hawks would have no clear weakness on offense or defense. With a 6ft4 and 6ft8 guard, our backcourt would be a mismatch for 90% of the teams in the league.
When you have his intangibles like leadership and clutch play, this would be a match made in heaven..
Oh ..time for me to wake up!!! What do y'all think?
