IN my opinion it is a couple of games too low. Joe Johnson will probably be an all star this year. Josh Smith will be a borderline allstar. We are two deep in every position with good young talent. I think that we are a better squad talent wise than the Baby Bulls that went to the playoffs a couple of years ago. (Although I'd admit that we don't play near the defense)

I think 36 is a better prediction.

I agree Atlanta has talent. But talent alone doesn't win games. I don't see JJ making the all-star game even though he should. Smith isn't even close to being an all-star. He has amazing stats but he isn't consistent.

Thumbs up Viva Insidehoops...and Team review

I have pulled for the Hawks since the days of Jon Koncak but think chemistry may be an issue for them to be a cool squad...ask Team USA (Why didn't they let Iverson play? and where was Bruce Bowen, even though I thought to keep Battier as well kind of a a younger, more offensively skilled Bowen)...oh and shut up Kobe considering you didn't make the trip to Japan...

Once again GREAT review and look forward to the Clipper 'prognosis'...O.F. (Original Fan) since Michael Cage and the drafting of Tony Gwynn

I agree every thing about Marvin spells a Small Foward, but everyone lists him as a power foward.

Does anyone have any guesses on how the minutes will be distributed? Can we pencil in Josh Smith + Marvin Williams for 32mpg each? Joe Johnson for 38mpg?

And... does anyone want to take a guess on who'll be the better performer--- Smith or Williams...

You forgot about Lorenzen Wright
