Just more scoring for the Hawks, their gonna be the new york knicks if their not careful, not too sure if this is a good trade, jamal crawford though great scorer, seems to be like iverson where they dominate the ball too much and become cancer to teams, this could work out, but don't see the warriors making that big of an impact with this trade, as for the warriors, not too sure about the impact, i guess acie law still has "potential", speedy? just don't know

The Hawks still need to bring Bibby back.

JC can't run the point full time.

i agree

He will screw them

I don't understand this trade, but at least they got rid of Claxton and Acie Law was a bust in Atl.

I think it signifys the end of Bibby in ATL.

Getting Crawford and drafting Teague means you got two guys that you can start. They will probably focus on getting Zaza and Marvin back now.

Anybody have any idea what Golden St is trying to do? I thought Monta Ellis wasn't too keen on the Warriors drafting a PG and not only do they go ahead and draft one, but they trade for two others. I know that Speedy Claxton's career is pretty much over and will ride the IL until his contract is up in 2010, but really, I'm confused as to what GS is doing.

On the flip side, I like this deal for Atlanta, only if Mike Bibby is coming back. Jamal Crawford gives them some more depth off the bench and can play the 1 in spurts. However, if he is going to be the full time starting PG, that definitely spells disaster. I'm not sure if Jeff Teague is ready to start right away on a playoff team.

Speedy Claxton already was on the Warriors a couple years ago.

Great Acquisition by the Atlanta Hawks. Now the Miami Heat wouldn't advance in the 2nd Round of the playoffs if they play the Hawks in the post season.
