NFL: Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings! After two days of NBA over/under talk with Robby Kalland, we are back to a sense of normalcy in discussing the Atlanta Hawks. On Wednesday’s show, Bret LaGree of Hoopinion joins the program for an extensive conversation and topics include the following:

  • Dwight Howard has been a hot-button topic for three months now, and we lead with a conversation about what to expect
  • What could Mike Budenholzer do defensively to make up for the change from Al Horford to Howard? Could this defense be as good as it was a year ago?
  • Rookies are bad, but we like Atlanta’s two first-round picks. Will they play?
  • Wing depth is interesting on this team and the shooting could be better than you think
  • Overall predictions, including where Bret thinks the team lands on offense and defense when compared to the rest of the league
