Pretty inconsequential. A perfect team for t-mac where he won't have too much pressure on hum and don't mind losing the first round. Hawks need to pick up a center in the worst way. Its funny how bad their management is, keep Joe Johnson and then trade away jordan crawford and a first rounder.

Even last season McGrady was drawing a ton of open looks and double teams just because of his immense bball IQ. 14 points 5 boards 4 assists as the 6th man this season. book it.

Steal of the year. It's a perfect situation for him as he is not pressured to score a bunch of points and can still play a bit of 1 off the bench. Not to mention he's a great fit for the 2 or 3. Definitely will be streaming a lot of Hawks games this year.

In Atlanta he'll be a more assertive scorer while still getting others open looks.

I feel the same way. Only problem is not everybody thinks he can be a "good player" since he is no longer a superstar talent.

He definetly still can be a good player. Atlanta gives him a chance to show that since nobody was paying attention to Detroit, they just looked at his statline and thought "lol T-Mac washed up ahahaha he cant drop 20 no more". When really he was their 2nd best player last season.

They cant afford him.

Dallas would probably love to S&T him to Atlanta for J-Smoove tho.

So Bird wasn't a better ball handler than McGrady?

They can't afford Chandler. Atlanta would actually be a good landing spot for Dwight Howard if it wasn't for all their bloated contracts.

hawkfan is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default Re: Hawks to sign Tracy Mcgrady....

How to get Dwight Howard back to Atlanta:

1. Don't resign JC (which is happening).
2. Amnesty Marvin Williams.
3. Don't re-sign Kirk Hinrich.
4. Sign and trade of picks for Dwight Howard.
5. Pray a lot (because it's not going to happen).

But realistically, for Howard, playing alongside Smith and Horford would make his life so much easier. He's never played with two guys like that, Horford who is a banger and rebounder, while Smith is an excellent help defender.

Someone give me some green, so I can get out of the red! Thanks!
