WHO’s RIGHT AND WHO’S WRONG…

 

No Matter what happens tonight, I think based on what we have seen so far this season, we can safely conclude on the following decisions over the last year. Note  this is not the future we are talking right now based on results....WHO’s RIGHT AND WHO’S WRONG…

1.       Signing Joe to the Max. ASG/SUND RIGHT and FANS WRONG: I can debate this to the ends of the earth. From what we have seen so far, signing Joe to the max was the right decision. There are 2 parts to this and probably the part that most people fail to realize is that by signing Joe, we kept him away from our competition. If you want to argue that signing Joe was the wrong move, just imagine a backcourt of Joe and Rose in Chicago..Ugghh. Chicago had the money and would have signed him to a max .Even  if he had gone to New York that would have automatically made New York a better team than the Hawks . Not signing Joe  would have ruled the Hawks out of from being a competitive team in the east for at least the next 5 years no matter who we signed as replacement.  

2.       Playing Jeff Teague DREW/WOODY WRONG and FANS RIGHT. This I am saying with a little hesitation. We can also argue that Jeff is playing well now because he is an unknown talent in the league and teams have not yet had enough information to scout him. We are yet to see what he can do in a full season. I remember his fellow draftee ( Collison) lighting it up in New Orleans with some  20-10 numbers  when CP3 was injured only to fall back to earth when he was sent to Indiana.

If Teague turns out to be the real deal, just imagine what the Hawks lost by not trusting him- 18 mil to Bibby( that money should have gone to a legit big), Jordan Crawford and a draft pick.

3.       Kirk Henrich Trade.. ASG/ SUND Right and FANS wrong: Unless Jordan Crawford turns into the next great thing; I think this was a very good trade. There is no doubt that the Hawks don’t get past Orlando without Henrich. His D on Jameer was super considering what Jameer did to Bibby last year. Henrich also makes Jamal expendable this off season. A back court of Teague, Joe and Henrich is good enough we don’t need to resign Jamal.
