It is 50/50. Hawks were not ready to compete. Even if Paul was on the team. Hawks would have got blown out in the 1st round. In honesty we would have been one of those 6-7-8 seeds and always losing in the 1st round. Hawks went through this before. Good enough to make the playoffs. Never good enough to compete for the championship.
I just feel with having Marvin. The Hawks stand a better chance at competing for a championship. Marvin and JJ will compliment each other well at SF and SG. If gives the Hawks those two scoring options that can do just about everything very well. When you look at their game. Marvin and JJ are about two of the most complete players in the league. Most importantly they are unselfish and smart players. With the athletes this team has. Any knowledgeable PG should fit in well here. That PG doesn't have to be the great playmaker Paul is. Speedy is an ideal fit for this team. Speedy just need to stay healthy and play at least 30-32 mpg.
