Default Who is best player for Hawks?

I haven't had a chance to see them play this year. I know Joe Johnson is amazing, but will he be the best player on the team when Marvin Williams and Al Horford develop?

Does Josh Smith have a realistic chance to be an elite player in fans' minds?

Joe's probably the best scorer, but Smith is the Kobe Bryant of defense. If he gets a jumpshot, he could be purty good. Horford'll be good, but not great, IMO. Marvin could also be very good, maybe even better than Johnson.

Yeah, Williams does shoot a very high percentage. I just can't tell if it's off jumpshots or easy lay-ins (like, say, Dwight Howard...although I know obviously they are different sizes).

It's surprising to hear that Williams has potential to be better than Johnson. I like that though; I've thought very highly of Williams this year but not in the past.

Does Smith look happy in Atlanta? All your team needs is a good PG it seems...

Yep, a point guard would be good. We've seen how good we can be when our PG plays well. Hopefully Law develops into a superstud, or else I'll be screaming, Calderon!!!!!!!!!
