It always amazes me when there is a team like the Hawks that is playing well and yet their fans aren't really behind them.    Unlike the Raptors, who aren't playing so well, yet have over a hundred pages on  3 or 4 different boards,  it's hard to find an active game thread for the Hawks.  I mean, even the Bobcats have a more loyal following than the Hawks.  I say, move the Hawks to Seattle and then everybody's happy.   Most telling are the comments about Josh Smith.  I don't want him on the Celtics.  Hawks fans, who have watched him day in and day out don't like him, so, why would we want him?  Enjoy today's comments.... We need to smash these guys. It all comes down to which Jeff Teague shows up tonight. We need to play through Horford tonight, Bass won't have a chance at guarding him Magic and Simmons gave the Hawks a little credit. Hope we don’t make them look stupid. Wow, the crowd really went nuts over a Paul Pierce three Maybe Atlanta really is a crappy basketball audience. We double a covered garnett and allow pierce a wide open 3?? Uh, F*** this. And while i’m at it, deshawn should just go join a retirement home How do you guard Paul Pierce? Just a little gap in the mid-range and he’s going up with it. Josh did his best there. Do what the hawks do. Leave him open Okay, we're not playing poor defense I think the Celtics are just on fire with their shooting. Is Jeff Green to be added to the Hawk Killer list? Pierce is going to feast on the three point line with josh guarding him And he feasts on the free throw line Because he always does, and especially against us. I will always miss Jason terry Not when he's hitting 3's against the Hawks. Home-court whistles tonight. Jeff Green looks like a player from the early 90's And it’s not just because of the haircut To me he's always had a bit of a Len Bias look about him, especially since he's in a Boston uni now. Finally a freaking call on Cs They are fouling all over on D and not being called for it Crawford has loads of talent, honestly But he still could use some serious coaching up, and a bit of restraint. Man. Avery Bradley is a Helluva defender. We gotta get one of those guys next year. Great defender, but still a threat on offense. I hate watching Josh Smith play basketball. Hell of an up and under move by KG on Al. He looked like Kevin McHale right there. If we lose by three or less, I'm gonna look back on that KG three like "seriously?" Then I'm gonna look at Josh's shot chart, with disdain. Bradley is fouling every time I hope KG is recognizing who Jeff Teague is now. Who's KG? I'm beginning to think that maybe josh is just worried about filling his stat sheet rather than win games. His stat stuffing ways has been around even when the hawks had losing seasons, like he fills the stats despite the team. The Celtics are guarding the hell out of the three point line and you don’t want to challenge the middle? He's going for a max contract, of course he is looking to fill his stats. Am I the only person who saw Garnett practically molesting Al? i’m getting used to garnett getting away with murder 6-20 on threes for now. that's what happens when a good defensive team guards the line I think it's what happens when Josh Smith, Anthony Tolliver, and Devin Harris take a lot of threes They are all Career “shouldntbeshootingfromthereallthetimeanyway from three” Josh, if you're 2-7 from three You’re actually NOT having a good shooting night. Korver can't stay in front of Pierce. This could be first round match up Hopefully Pierce and KG old legs catch up with them Can we stop having Devin throw lobs please? Sign Bibby to a one-second contract for scenarios like this Gotta drive the basket The Celtics are tired Is it me, or does Smith stunk in late game situations? I hate the refs so much, they bailed Garnett out 3 times in OT. The refs have ruined this sport for me Pierce, do just one thing for me that makes me happy: Retire. NOW. These shots Pierce is hitting....Damn. Josh elicits so many unprintable words from me sometimes Four turnovers in overtime By Employee Number Five. Why do Celtics fans want Josh so much? They like subjecting themselves to such madness? They already have Jordan Crawford, might as well go for broke. Already had Rasheed Wallace, too So at this point, it’s like “What the hell.” He's a close friend of Rondo... Personally I think it would give the Celtics two prima donnas I hope Boston faces Miami at some point in the playoffs and get destroyed. I hate them so much!! I admit that I've fantasized about spitting on each one of the Celtics' graves Jason Terry is dead to me [Discuss on CG Forums!]
