It appears that if you are not the Cleveland Cavaliers then you don't need to be talking about LeBron James.
Hawks Co-Owner Michael Gearon was fined $25,000 for comments that he made about James to the AJC.
Scroll down to the calendar for all the upcoming events that will lead up to the Hawks tip-off. Great stuff, but much more importantly, check out Oct. 25th. It appears the Hawks are unveiling an alternate third jersey. Looks like it time to bring the piggy bank back out. I have a Zaza jersey to save up for. (HT Hawksquawk)
I could do a post on the training camp invitees but it would not be as good or as entertaining as this one from Ridiculous Upside. It is chalk full of links and goodies so check it out for serious information on the non-guaranteed players at camp.
I plan to stake my claim on three of these players and obsessively root for each to the point where I assume I will cry if one does not make the team. Who wants to join me?
But seriously, click the link.
It seems a bit weird that the Hawks cannot make a decision before camp as to whether they want Mario on the team considering he has done the exact same things well (going down right crazy and crashing the boards) and not well (most other things related to basketball) since he has been on the team.
But I guess it does not really matter since I am sure Mario was going to go 100 percent whether he had a contract or not.
