Locked on Hawks Podcast: Opening Night rotation, FiveThirtyEight and more

Episode 59 is here. Enjoy.

NBA: Preseason-Atlanta Hawks at Chicago Bulls Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everybody! Episode 59 of the Locked on Hawks podcast is upon us and there is plenty to get to in the world of the Atlanta Hawks. Topics for today’s show include the following:

  • The 15-man roster is finalized and we explore the decision to roll with only two point guards. Is this crazy? What happens if one of the point guards goes down? What about a move before Opening Night?
  • FiveThirtyEight released preseason NBA projections and, um, they aren’t super kind to the Hawks. Are they reasonable? Why are they so low?
  • Marc Stein of ESPN is higher on Atlanta
  • What will the rotation look like on Opening Night? Chris Vivlamore of the AJC spoke to Mike Budenholzer and we take a guess in our own right
