Though he is currently under scrutiny by many, one cannot deny that Danny Ferry has done a great job finding second round talent in the NBA Draft. Mike Scott has developed into a great young role player for the Hawks, and in recent weeks Center Mike Muscala has shown a ton of promise. Muscala was taken with the 44th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, as part of the Hawks’ draft day deal with the Dallas Mavericks. Hailing from Minnesota, Muscala was a four-year starter at Bucknell, and was voted the 2013 Patriot League Player of the Year, as well as the Defensive...Continue reading »

The Hawks defense took a huge blow Thursday afternoon with reports coming forth saying Thabo Sefolosha is to miss the rest of the season with a broken ankle. The injury stems from the incident early Wednesday morning in which Sefolosha was arrested along with Hawks Center Pero Antic. They reportedly refused to let the police set up a crime scene when Pacers Forward Chris Copeland was stabbed outside of a bar. Amongst Sefolosha’s misdemeanor charges was resisting arrest, as apparently it took four officers to put him in cuffs. He was seen limping on video as he left...Continue reading »

MOCK DRAFT 2.0 With the 2015 NFL Draft approaching rapidly, I present the second mock draft of the offseason. I would love to see everyone comment and tell me who you think Atlanta should draft and what strategy they use. With that being said, here is the second mock. Round 1: TRADE with the Cleveland Browns (12th Pick) Selection: Randy Gregory  Outisde Linebacker, Nebraska How about a trade to start the draft? In this mock, I have Atlanta trading down with the Cleveland Browns to get Cleveland’s first round pick and third round pick of the 2015 draft. Randy...Continue reading »

With their 96-69 rout of the Phoenix Suns at home Tuesday, the Hawks broke the franchise record for single season victories, as they notched their 58th win of the season. While the Dominique Wilkins-led teams of the 90’s were electrifying, I think it’s fair to say that the 2014-15 Hawks are the best team in franchise history. A Cinderella story of sorts, the Hawks came into this season with NBA analysts predicting them to likely finish around 4th in the East. Even lifelong Hawks fans never could have imagined the club having the type of success they have achieved...Continue reading »

At around 4 AM last night, Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic were arrested outside of 1 OAK, a bar in New York City, after Indiana Pacers Forward Chris Copeland reportedly was stabbed outside the club. The two were both arrested for trying to prevent police from setting up a crime scene. According to reports, Antic grabbed a police officer, while Thabo charged at another. They were officially each charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration. The Hawks Vice President of Public Relations stated that the team is “aware” of the situation...Continue reading »

Unlike the AL MVP race, which has been of a two man race in recent years, the NL MVP race is wide open. There are at least 15 players that could realistically be holding up the NL MVP trophy at the end of the season. Freddie Freeman, the first baseman for the Atlanta Braves, could very well be that player in 2015. Freeman has had an MVP-type season before. In 2013, Freeman finished fifth in the NL MVP voting. He hit .319 with 23 homers and 109 RBIs.  While his numbers were down last year, they were still impressive and I expect Freeman to have a monster year this year....Continue reading »

It’s always tough to see a fan favorite go, especially when he’s the best closer in baseball. The Braves shocked many on Easter Sunday when they packaged up Craig Kimbrel and Melvin Upton Jr. and shipped them to the San Diego Padres for Carlos Quentin, Cameron Maybin, Matt Wisler, Jordan Paroubeck and the 41st overall pick in this year’s MLB Draft. Will this trade hurt the club in 2015? Yes. But this deal is all about the future. Losing Kimbrel hurts, but the fact of the matter is he is a luxury. The Braves consistently develop effective bullpen players. This is...Continue reading »

Roger McDowell Year in and year out, you see no-name pitchers brought into the Braves organization that produce. The man to thank for this is pitching coach Roger McDowell. McDowell has provided the Braves with consistent success from his pitching staffs since he was hired in 2005. The former big leaguer has a reputation for helping pitchers with control issues. Newly acquired pitcher Jim Johnson cited McDowell as a big reason for him signing with the Braves. Former Braves pitcher Eric O’ Flaherty actually recommended McDowell to Johnson while he was struggling last...Continue reading »
