At least the Speedy deal can go through. I would like for Stern to step in. I have no idea what he can do right now. Right now about all he can do is wait and see how things unfold. Then proceed from their. Luckily for Stern no one outside of the true Hawks fans who remain give a damn about the Hawks. If this was another team it would be the top story on Espn and every news outlet in Sports.

It doesn't suck when we see all of the talented players on our team. It does suck if Belkin take over everyone of the players will be gone. Either he will trade them or they will refuse to play/sign long term. Regardless of how much everyone bashes BK. He has drafted well and has made this one of the most talented Hawks rosters in a very long time.

I don't really see what's wrong with Belkin. If I owned part of a company, and the other shareholders decided to just buy me out when they didn't have that right, I'd be pretty fcukin pissed too. I don't know the whole case, but the judge seems to think the other owners did something shady.

And Lascar, I thought you were the last sane Hawks fan, but this…

can push for the playoffs in the east.

My current prediction would be 38 wins or so

…means you are now one of them. Exactly how the hell are the Hawks going to leapfrog the Bobcats, Magic, Raptors, Sixers AND Celtics? They will struggle just to stay ahead of the Knicks.

I agree.

Since there is an appeal, the judge's ruling might get overturned. Accordingly, that means the judge's ruling never was effective in the first place.

Which means this contract/trade restriction would be a penalty for nothing.

Also, what if Belkin doesn't come up with the money or down the line changes his mind? That probably won't happen, but if it does that means the Hawks suffer a penalty for nothing.

This part of the ruling is bad.

That team wins 36 games, unless Marvin Williams and Sheldon Williams somehow end up having superb seasons.

The Hawks need at least one more big (Jamaal Magliore or Chris Wilcox would be nice), plus a reserve perimeter shooter to get into the playoffs.

You don't have to be a homer to realize that we are better 1-5 than the Bobcats, Magic, and Raptors and matchup well with the Sixers and Celtics. Add to that fact that the judge's ruling won't deter our ability to bring over David Andersen, who is starring in Europe, and we don't have a bad squad

Speedy/Lue
Joe Johnson/Salim
Marvin Williams/Childress
Josh Smith/Shelden Williams
Zaza Pachulia/David Andersen

We will finally have scoring and defense. We will be a force to be reckoned with.

The Magic should make the playoffs this year, especially with a full year of Donnie. Plus adding Reddick was a real plus.

Washington had better watch out, or they will fall out of the playoffs.

how can the judge even enforce that? i dont see that lasting. like has been said before, this will screw other players. i dont think the judge thought out the consequences of this.

I think I predicted this a couple months ago and a couple of Hawks fans stated that I did not know what I was talking about.
