Hooped Up: Atlanta Hawks:
Since you now know, love and enjoy 27-year old Hawks rookie Ivan Johnson so much. It’s about time you knew some quick facts about this mystery man who has the internet going nuts and the Miami Heat game planning to stop in the future. I don’t know about you, but I’m sure glad the league finally has it’s own meaner Chuck Norris.
At 27-years old, he’s the oldest rookie in the 2011 class.
He hails from San Antonio, Texas.
Played his college basketball at Cisco JC, L.A. Southwest JC, Cal State San Bernardino and Oregon but bounced because his coach did not renew his scholarship due to “anger management issues.” He was a Political Science Major. Um, cool!
He’s banned from the Korean Basketball League, FOREVER.
Played in the NBA D-League in 2010-2011 before entering the league. Was named All-NBA D-League First Team, NBA D-League All-Defensive Second Team and NBA D-League All-Star.
Always Plays with a diamond grill.
Previously played in Puerto Rico for Caciques de Humacao.

Teague has played in 9 games (all starts) for the Hawks so far this year and he is averaging 34.2 minutes, 11.0 points, 1.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 2.1 steals per game. If Teague keeps playing well...
Here is Barkley during a TV timeout last night calling weight watchers a scam and hating on the Atlanta Hawks. Clearly this would be a lot worse if he actually meant that weight watchers didn't work. All he was actually saying is that it's crazy that they pay him so much money just to lose weight. Pretty funny the wording that he used though.
The Atlanta Hawks are already in the midst of a grueling week, and it may be about to get even tougher with the Charlotte Bobcats coming off a stellar performance.

Al Horford summed it up: “This by far has to be my worst defeat here as a Hawk. I didn’t feel like we wanted to win this game.” Possible exceptions include Ivan Johnson, Willie Green and Tracy McGrady.
This was the kind of loss that people who can’t embrace the Hawks predict as soon as they hear LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are out. And then it happened. “I wish they would...
