I really don't get it. We need a PG, we have for the past 2-3 years. Yet we pass on Chris Paul and Derron Williams. Hmm.. deja vu this year?
We run an uptempo suns style offense which allows Josh Smith to be an effective allstar level PF, Horford could easily step in and play Center just as Stoudemire does in Phoenix, and Diaw did 2 years ago. He just makes sense out of all the big men we can get with the 3rd pick. At 11 we can take Critenton or Acie.

I agree 100%....Ofcourse we need a PG and just because Billy Knight screwed up when he didnt draft Chris Paul or D.Williams back in 05 we shouldnt draft Conley at 3 when he is not the BPA....I say take Horford who can come in and help us out right now or trade the pick for a veteran player....and Josh Smith can play SF....Marvin Willams will have to come off the bench which I really dont mind

Crittenton runs a high-tempo offense a lot better than Law. Crittenton almost runs it as good as Conley.

Reports are that it's almost a lock that if Conley or Yi do not drop to 11 we have a trade in place to trade #11 for Luke Ridnour.

the result came out to be like almost every mock out there. there were so many rumors! i'm really glad the ridnour rumor didnt go through. this years draft was huge. i really hope horford doesnt turn into another "landlord".

07-08
with the new unis and new lineup, hopefully these hawks can have a successful season in the terrible east.

Haha, the Hawks are dumb as hell. They are my number 2 team, thank God the Cavs aren't so dumb.

That is, unless he can play center with success. Which I doubt due to the height and short arm reach.

Then you look at the second pick, Law. I love Law. Not a true point but should help none the less.

But, what could have been is a lot better. Conley Jr., Sean Williams. Williams would be considered a reach but he has as much potential if not more than Horford. And gives that great defensive presence. Just as big, longer wingspan, better defense.

Sean Williams is not much different than Soloman Jones, don't be a fool. Horford is next in line to be a 20+10 guy. Acie is a baller.

i just can't see horford as a big enough guy to produce as an effective center in the nba. and he's not much of an uptempo guy either.

No one has to go, Shelden is not a starter, and we drafted him knowing he wouldn't start.

Is that why Williams went top 20 in a much deeper draft even though he is considered a huge risk? While Soloman went in round 2 in a 'weak' draft. Williams was the best defender in the draft. Best shot blocker too. Well, unless you are going off Oden's potential.

Horford isn't going to do much for the franchise. His wingspan is short for his height. He is a PF but not a C. A 6'9 3/4 C with a 6'11 wingspan has a slim chance of succeeding.

I really like both picks....Horford was considered the 3rd best player in the draft and someone who can come in and help out from day one aswell as Law....And that explains the reason why we passed on Conley.....If you think Horford has a slim chance at succeeding because of his wingspan...I wonder why Ben Wallace has done so well at the Center posistion being that he is only 6'8

Ben Wallace is the exception, not the rule.

So we were gonna get Amare what about his wingspan? Who cares wth his wingspan is, he is strong, can rebound, score, and run the floor. People get to obsessed with labeling a position on someone, in today's NBA you don't need a "Center".
