I love the Hawks.

I hate what they did to us. I hate their twisted management. But I love their matchups against the Boston Celtics. David and Goliath. I'm rooting for David. The East is relevant. The East is exciting. And the Hawks are apart of that.

The Vegas oddsmakers and ESPN's accuview (78% chance of win) lay us as heavy favorites especially with Al Horford being out. The once defensive Hawks have let down in the past three games.

Finally an answer for Joe Johnson.

Although Jason Richardson isn't necessarily the same player Joe Johnson is, I feel like he brings a quality that we missed when we lost JJ. Jason has the size, power and ability to create that we lost years ago. He also costs about the same, but is shooting a better percentage from 3 than JJ.

Nash says we miss JJ as the backup point guard and that JR doesn't make up for that. No offense, LB.

What is up with defense by charges?
