Locked on Hawks Podcast: Pre-media day ramblings

Hello, Media Day!

NBA: Atlanta Hawks-Press Conference Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday! It is also, of course, Media Day for the 2016-2017 Atlanta Hawks and before we get to the actual interactions, we provide a preparatory podcast for your listening pleasure. Topics include the following:

  • The Hawks come in at No. 12 in ESPN’s preseason power rankings. Too high? Too low? (Gasp) Appropriate?
  • Mike Budenholzer said glowing things about Atlanta’s defense and that makes perfect sense
  • Injury updates for Tiago Splitter and Jarrett Jack. One is very encouraging. The other... not so much.
  • ESPN RPM projections treat the Hawks like a playoff team now. ARE YOU HAPPY?
  • The players we are most interested to watch in the early going this season
