Hawks Need to Get Serious About Winning: HERES HOW
These are my five easy steps for the Hawks to be competitors next year.
1. Fire Mike Woodsoon; he has had his time to work with this team and he is doing an awful job. He is 53-151 since coming to Atlanta, does not know how to utilize the players the Hawks have or how to dispense minutes properly.
2. Trade for Pau Gasol. The Hawks have tons of young players that are expendable such as Josh Childress, Salim Stoudamire and Shelden Williams. As of now the weakest position when the Hawks are healthy is center. They lack a true starting center who puts up consistent points and racks up rebounds. Gasol can play both forward and center and would bring good experience to the team and add some veteran leadership to one of youngest teams in th NBA.
3. Name Herb Brown head Coach; Herb was coach of the United States team that competed in the Maccabiah Games in Israel. They earned a bronze medal but played very well. Herb knows a lot about the game and has been with this team for a few years so he knows the players well.
4. Draft Greg Oden; if Gred Oden declares for the draft they need to get him. I do not care if people say they need a PG because a player like Oden only comes around once every few years and the Hawks have a great possibility to draft him.
5. Sign Chauncy Billups; Billups will be a free-agent after this year and will look for money. The Hawks have tons of money to spend. They barely met the minimum requirement for cap spent this year. Singing Billups will bring leadership, playoff experience, championship experience and an all-around superb player to this team.
