What about da Hawks?
I knew that they had been winning but even as a passive Hawks fan through the years, I had no idea at the level. They are srsly winning, like at franchise record pace. And have folks like Doc Rivers saying they are possibly the best team in the league.

Maybe yous guys were aware but I wasn't. I don't catch sportscenter every single night but I'm listening to sports radio, reading on the interwebs and watching at least some sports related show almost every night. My point is, the focus is always on the spotlight teams. I always hear about the same ones: Lakers, whoever Lebron is playing for this week, Bulls, etc. But Hawks, Memphis and others go largely unnoticed.

Would love for the Hawks to make a run and grab a title before Dominique and Tree get too old to be legitimate contenders. They are the only names that I know on the current roster.

Re: What about da Hawks?
I'm afraid to watch them. Every time they start doing well and I get involved, they fall flat on their face.

Then my self esteem goes down because I think its me.

And I don't like the Omni...


Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Re: What about da Hawks?
Not much NBA talk around here. I'm one of the few that actually follows it. And yes, the Hawks have been on a roll for a while.  I believe they're 27-8.  The thing is, they haven't been beating up on the cellar dwellers.  Beat Memphis last night, which is one of the better teams in the league.  Skrong.  Just got back from L.A. where they whipped the Clip.  Have beaten Cleveland twice. Once with LeBron and once without. 

I looked at the roster before the season and thought I may not watch a game.  Same old group of cast-offs.  The two keys are Al Horford is finally healthy and playing every night and Jeff Teague.  If he isn't an All Star this year, something is wrong.  This guy is fun to watch.  Now that we've given them some love, they'll go on a 10 game losing streak.  But so far, they've been darn skippy.
I gotta' see the candy first.  Then I get in the van.  I'm not stupid.

Dallas has a B-B team. Has a big german on it I hear.

Two bits!
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Re: What about da Hawks?
Apparently, if you make a racially insensitive remark or send an insensitive email,  you can sell your share of an NBA team for millions or a billion more than it's worth.

If I owned part of a team, I'd be abundantly doling out the "my nurra's" right now.

"How's it going W.T."

"Fine, my nurra, how y'all doing?"

Not there anymore.  (Sad face)  Funny though.  I've had two rice bowls from there this week.  Asian glazed chicken.  Darn good stuff.  Some people even do Iron Man Triathlons after a good rice bowl.
