"People had us winning the championship last year when we got off to that 6-0 start," Hawks captain and All-Star Joe Johnson said and then laughed. "Everybody needs to calm down and just keep working. It’s a long season, man. Every coach I’ve ever had tells you that [the season] is a marathon and not a sprint. And that’s true. Don’t get me wrong, you’ve got to play with urgency. But you also have to keep the season in perspective."

Joe Johnson returns to Dr. Jekyll. Mr. Hyde waiting patiently in the wings.

From the Hawks official twitter account. Best of luck to those guys finding another team to fight for.

Last year, yeah, I burnt guys. I have to try and play Joe differently this year. I look at the Lakers and what they did by getting Ron Artest, and all I can think is that Kobe is going to be a beast this year because he won't have to guard the other team's best player this year. Artest can handle that. Somehow I have to relieve Joe of having to guard point guards. And in that regard hopefully we'll be able to shrink not only his minutes but everybody's minutes and make sure they remain productive and they don't lose anything.

Mike Woodson speaking to the AJC's Sekou Smith. Ummmm, let's hope Jeff Teague becomes very interested in defense. Other than that, I am not sure who Woodson can stick on the point guard.

A fantastic piece of news from the Hawks' brilliant Jon Steinberg: "Ha. Both guys will just have Smith on their backs! No first initials, etc."

The Josh/Joe Smith Jersey intrigue is officially solved. Henry Abbott of TrueHoop is elated over the news. I have never disagreed with him any more on anything than I do right now about this. Legitimately, my hear is aching. We might need to cut the list of reasons to be excited down to sixty reasons. If you need me, I will crying in my bathroom. *****update****** Just found out from the Hawks PR when I complained on twitter that a full name is not allowed on the back of a jersey. I feel a little better.

"I'm really not worried about the 3-point ball right now. I have no business out there."

"I'm really not worried about the 3-point ball right now. I have no business out there."

Josh Smith via Sekou Smith's Twitter Saying and doing are two different things. But saying is related to knowing and knowing can be a real, live step toward doing. I am kind of freaking out right now.

Alas, the national cameras were finally on No. 5. (Sure, he got some attention over a couple of spectacular slam dunk contents, but the postseason brings a different caliber of lens.) With Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley’s full attention, how would J-Smooth react? Was he going to force 15-footers like he was prone to do? Would he drive uncontrollably to the hole and lose the ball? Or would he patiently work his defender, shake one way and send the poor chap the other? In the span of 10 minutes, he wound up doing all three. Chris Webber can’t understand that. We do.

SLAM ONLILNE is counting down the top fifty players in the NBA. Josh Smith comes in at number 40.

The Hawks have a fine arena in Atlanta. A move couldn't be pegged to a lack of local financial support ... although I imagine the argument would be tied to Atlanta's lack of fan support. It'd be a trickier argument from an economic standpoint, though.

Could the Hawks be sold? After reading the article I posted yesterday about the Hawks looking for investors and being willing to sell their assets, Ziller goes a different route than me and asks if it is the Hawks and not the Thrashers who might be on the "only if it is a really good offer" block. I don't see them selling the Hawks, and I certainly don't see the Hawks moving from Atlanta. But more because it would give me nightmares than anything else.
