The lesson here, sports fans, is that the only thing worse than just being outright crappy is having the ability to be awesome and then, one day, voluntarily deciding "Awesome is overrated. I’d rather be crappy."

On the Hawks logo. Jared Wade over at Both Teams Played Hard is going through every team logo, and he is not happy the Pacman is stuck collecting cobwebs. Go read the article and see the whole series so far since i de-colorfied his language in the quote. Good stuff.

Othello Hunter has been one of the regulars on the Hawks’ practice court this summer. Whether he’ll be in training camp with the Hawks remains to be seen. "I’m still waiting to hear something for sure," Hunter said after working out with Marvin Williams late last week. "We’ll see."

Othello Hunter still unsigned. The offseason evaluation might drop a whole letter grade if this does not get done. We are talking a future, above average 8th man people!

Hawks coach Mike Woodson is not going anywhere. Hawks general manager Rick Sund made that clear on at least three different occasions Tuesday, on two different sports talk radio shows in the morning and later to me in his office. Not that it was an issue or anything (laugh track goes here). Woodson has one year remaining on his contract and Sund, while not confirming or denying any details pertaining to said contract, insisted that the Hawks would indeed "honor Woodson’s contract."

Get the ticker tape parade ready.

Eighty-four minutes mattered. The other 252? Meh. Only one other series in NBA playoff history went seven games while being decided entirely by margins of 10 points or more: The Lakers-Suns West semifinals in 1970, in which L.A. overcame a 3-1 series deficit by winning the final three games by 17, 11 and 35 points. But Hawks-Heat had its own weird bragging rights -- zero lead changes after the first quarter of every game. It was the anti-Celtics-Bulls series. That all-timer was one long nail-biter; this one, one long nail-puller. It leaves me wondering whether Mike Woodson and Erik Spoelstra did two of the best jobs ever in terms of game preparation and adjusting to earlier results in the series, or if they did two of the worst bench coaching jobs ever given the lack of resiliency or halftime ad-libs and pep talks apparent in this one?

I think you know where I stand.

Hawks coach Mike Woodson roasted him for passing the ball to Smith in the corner on in the final seconds. As Smith’s 24-footer bounced off the rim with 10.9 seconds left, Woodson jumped Bibby’s case for making the pass. The surprise was Bibby’s response. He jumped Woodson right back, much to the delight of those of us sitting close enough to hear the entire exchange. "If you don’t want me to throw to him put him somewhere else," Bibby shouted. "He’s wide [@*&$%] open. Wide open. What do you want me to do? If you don’t want him shooting that then put him somewhere else. You tell him."

Horford’s sprained right ankle was "better than expected" at Thursday’s practice, according to Hawks coach Mike Woodson. But he said that he would start Solomon Jones if Horford does not play.

Someone pass me a paper bag.

"He didn’t do much today," Woodson said. "He did not shoot. And we don’t know what his status going to be. We’ll just have to wait and see. As of [Sunday morning] most of the swelling had gone down. But again, I don’t know if he’ll be able to go. "Only Marvin knows. And he’ll let me know after shootaround if he can go. I’ll watch him and kind of gauge it that way."

On Marvin playing tonight.

"Based on the fact that we tend to enjoy ourselves in Atlanta, we decided to lay down a no go-out policy. We can go out and have dinner, but guys have to get back in the room. No hanging out. It's not really a curfew but, believe me, we have our eyes open. We have eyes everywhere. (Atlanta) is definitely a fun place to go. You can hang out and have a good time, but we're on a business trip. That's the No. 1 focus right now, to take care of business."- Udonis Haslem

A huge blow to Hawks fans everywhere.

"You get that type of respect for how you perform during the postseason," Joe Johnson said. "During the regular season, you get your name out there, you get known. But the postseason is where legends are made."

Go make more commercials with piano music Joe.

"The only regret is that some of the guys that shed blood, sweat and tears with us along the way aren’t around to enjoy this part of it. Josh Childress is in Greece. And [former Hawks general manager Billy Knight] isn’t around to see what his team has become. And I don’t care how you slice it, this is his team. He put these pieces together and here we are."
