    Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Eastern Conference Finals

Milwaukee and Atlanta were two of my top-5 favorites in the East after the trade deadline. Giannis have been amazing in this postseason and he stepped up more against Brooklyn.

    Atlanta Hawks 2020 Free Agency Spending Spree Thoughts

    Should the Atlanta Hawks Sign John Collins to Extension?

    There have been rumblings lately about the Atlanta Hawks and John Collins.  The Atlanta Hawks have reservations about signing John Collins to a significant long-term contract extension this offseason. During the trade deadline, teams were calling the Hawks asking about John Collins. With the Hawks hesitating about giving him an extension, teams thought they could pry him away.

Collins, for his part, believes he’s proved his value. “I mean, I feel like I am a priority to the Hawks in terms of my value in the…

    Andre Drummond Atlanta Hawks: Should Atlanta Make the Trade?

      The Atlanta Hawks are headed to another losing season and lottery pick. The Detroit Pistons have underachieved, and Andre Drummond could be on the trading block. As a Hawks fan, we need a big man on the block to command the middle. Drummond is averaging almost 18 points and nearly 16 rebounds a game for Detroit. We heard the reports from yesterday that the Hawks are interested in trading for Andre Drummond. It feels like Drummond been in the league forever, but he’s only 26-years-old. Drummond’s contract is through the 2020-21 season where he’s owed over $28.75 million dollars. The Hawks will have ample amount of money for the…
