In the words of Dennis Green, the Hawks "Are who we thought they were." Atlanta is a mirror image of their team from last season, a competitive and solid squad cruising along under the radar. Yeah, they dropped two out of three this week but we'll just blame that on Josh Smith's poor play. Dude must still be pissed over that All-Star snub. That's still no reason to shoot 35% from the field though. #justsayin' —Jose Martinez
