Jalen Rose: Hawks a Pretender, Not a Contender

More after the jump:

To be fair, Jalen was kind to the Hawks while stating what many of us assume, despite the 5-0 start......that the Hawks are a good team and will win, but not championship caliber.

New Orleans Hornets and Atlanta Hawks - Contender Or Pretender? (via ESPN)

So there it is. It's not a shocker, but it does portend the narrative on the Hawks for the entire regular season, which is that the Hawks, until they've done more than drag an inferior team through a seven game first round and then get swept in the second in the playoffs, won't be taken seriously as a contender.
