Fountain of Youth (24 & Under Squad)


Training camp is around the corner and I'm excited.  Not much has changed as far as the guys we all depend on to win games.  There is a new head coach running the sidelines (although we have seen him around these parts before) and possibly a changing of the guard at the point position (I am hopeful).  Otherwise much is still the same in Hawksville. And that includes the Hawks' youth.

What was a symptom of the Hawks' past shortcomings is now a source of strength.  Our frontline is arguably one of the best in the league and factually one of the youngest.  Could you believe that Josh Smith, Al Horford, and Marvin Williams will all start the season as 24-year-olds?  And if Jeff Teague is able to take the starting point guard duties away from Mike Bibby during training camp, the Hawks will have a 22-year-old floor general.  And yet the Hawks are set to be Eastern Conference contenders.  Now that's something to be excited about!

Also in the fold are Jordan Crawford and Pape Sy (both will be 22-years-old at the start of the season).  And with the uncertainty of Jamal Crawford being in the Hawks lineup, JC2 may have a legit chance of having an impact in the Hawks line up this season.  So there is a possibility that we could see a lineup on the floor featuring the "24 & Under Squad".
