Default Crittenton or Law?

If it comes down to choosing one of these two guys as the PG who would you want? Please try to persuade me as to why you would take Law over Crittenton. I would take Crittenton seeing as he is the next "Chauncey Billups" and had a terrific rookie season at Tech. I am sick of all the scouts saying we should pass on Crittenton since he is "not-NBA ready." But don't we have two veteran PG's with playoff and championship experience who could tender Crittenton into becoming one of the best PG's in the next few years. Everyone agrees that in the long term Crittenton is a better PG than Law, so I would rather wait to see us get a better overall player. Law may have better shooting percentages but he was a senior; therefore he had much more experience. I also see Law more as a SG than a PG. We already have a player similar to Law, his name is Salim Stoudamire, the SG.

I would also take Crittenton over Law. His upside, size (post-up) and also the fact that he'll be able to run the team, all work in favor of Critt... Law is more polished at the moment, but thats natural, having spent 4 years developin' his craft at collegiate level...
The catch here is in the fact that Hawks will be probably looking for immediate help, which means that they will be highly reluctant to acquire young players that would take 2-3 years to develop. Hawks realy need some veteran help to step in right away and support JJ and Smith...
However, I think that Hawks are still not sure which draft road to take:
Option 1. If they take Horford at 3 (60:40%), I'm sure they will try to trade 11th pick for veteran PG...
Option 2. If they opt to draft for their true need (PG)and take Conley at 3, they will again try to trade that 11th pick for inside, post presence (true center)...
Anyhow, I don't see Hawks hangin' on to their 11th pick... which probably means NO Crittenton or Law...

I hope they just take Horford and Conely/Crittenton. We would be fine.

No way Conley is there at 11.

The most recent rumors have the Hawks trading 11 for Ridnour. Would you take Ridnour over Law?
