Over the last three weeks, the Hawks are 4-6. This team is struggling mightily and with the Bulls, the resurgent Knicks, and a tough Magic squad on the horizon, Atlanta's losing ways will likely continue. Sooner or later you have to assume that they will get it together. But how far do they have to decline before they make things right again? —Jose Martinez
