The NBA Draft is here. For the Atlanta Hawks it’s a new day. They had a 60 win season, won the Southeast division, and reached the Eastern Conference finals. But that was last year. For 2016 the Hawks will play in a division that will be better than 2015. Kyrie Irving will back along with a determined Lebron James. Boston has 2 first round picks, and a team that snuck into the playoffs under brilliant young coach Brad Stevens. The Heat and Toronto have some good pieces. Wizards have the Wall and Beal show. So Atlanta’s ability to even go as far as this year will be tested.
A real answer could be found in free agent Kevin Love. He would address all 3 Hawk needs. Consistent rebounding. He’s a big man who plays at the 4 spot. He adds another excellent outside shooter to the arsenal. Kevin Love to the Hawks.
Just saying .

This game brings you back to some of the great #NBAPlayoff superstar showdowns. Lebron James scores 16 of his 40 pts, and Stephen Curry scores 17 of his 37 including 2 shots from beyond 30 feet from the basket. Golden State pulls away late in 104-91 win over Cleveland.
#Bird vs #Wilkins, #Russell vs #Chamberlain, #Kobe vs #Iverson, #Jordan vs #Malone. Now etch the names James and Curry. The time and place Sun June 14, 2015 at Oracle Arena on a clear summer night in Oakland, CA.
Only fitting that this shootout take place in the San Francisco Area where other gunslingers and gold miners plied their trade over a century and a half ago. Golden State now stand just 1 win from bringing home the Pro Basketball’s ultimate treasure…the NBA Championship trophy
The team that is able to impose their tempo and get the most out of their benches will be the key to the game.
For the Warriors it is question of how much the want this NBA title and what they are willing to do to win,
For the Cavs it’s more of the same. It has to be #ALLInCLE Lebron James dominance, the rest of the team playing as if their hair’s on fire and 1 other scorer to help the offense
The Golden State Warriors won’t lose Game 4 of the Finals because:
- History-The Warriors have not lost 3 games in a row ALL year. After 2 game loss streak they win next game by avg of 13 points. They came back from 2-1 vs a Memphis team who played a similar physical style that worked temporarily in that series
- Fatigue- Cavs have exerted extraordinary energy and even sustained some injuries. They may not the stamina to pull it out
- David Lee – The former All Star is back in Steve Kerr’s rotation. His scoring and rebounding over more minutes will make a difference
- Steph Curry- The league MVP seemed to find his stroke during the furious comeback in game 3. He and Thompson are poised for big games
Hedging our bets. But one thing is sure. This has been one the best #NBAPlayoffs in some time
