Default How underrated are the Hawks?

Hawks are 3-3(should be 4-2, but were robbed).

There losses are from the Raptors, Spurs, and the Hornets.

All close games. Very intense games. Hawks play just like the spurs. Hawks have so much depth, with great man defenders in Dennis Schroder, DeMarre Carroll, Sefolosha, and amazing help defenders such as Millsap, Horford, and Korver.

Hawks are arguably the best three point shooting team in the league, with amazing inside scorers in Millsap and Horford.


Hawks ALSO have three potential all star players in Teague, Horford, and Millsap.

Why are the Hawks so underrated? How far do you think they can go?

They're one of the most underrated teams in the league imo. They're the type of team that can hurt anyone on any given night especially with JT running the one. I have them pegged in for a bottom half seed.

On the Knicks message board, Ultimateknicks, they were calling the Hawks a scrub team and the fact we beat them back to back means they should tank.

I call that underrated. Or the stereotype that all knick fans are retarded is true.

Hawks are properly rated. Just your average, run of the mill treadmill team. They will never do any damage.

That was with Mike Woodson and Larry Drew.

Hawks have a top 5 coach now, and a roster that is improving drastically.

What makes them a treadmill team?

They are properly rated. Maybe not talked about or bought up as much as they could be but to be honest they aren't the most exciting team. They are good but not good enough to be competitors.

Pop
Carlise

Clearly top two. No other coaches come close.

Stan
Hornacek
Bud
Thibs
Doc

Tossup. I can't properly rank Bud or Jeff until they've had two full seasons.
