The Hawks are not very good
By: Lucas Kochevar
The Hawks are on a 7-game losing streak and the team is flat out bad right now. This team is being exposed as they don't have their backbone player Paul Millsap. This team cannot win a game without him and its sad. The Hawks are in a very dark place. The Hawks should be going to the playoffs and trying to compete but if the team keeps playing like this the whole nation will see how much of a mess this team is, For example, the Hawks bench was outscored today by the Brooklyn Nets bench 43-3. That is a pitiful number to let the god awful Brooklyn Nets' bench to score 43 points. The Hawks seriously need to blow this up and just restart. I cant even watch this team for a long period of time and not be mad. They do so many things wrong and they just are not playing up to what they are capable of. It is sad.
I have been 50/50 on the Hawks rebuilding but this stretch just shows to me why they need to just stop trying and rebuild. I don't want the Hawks in the playoffs because they don't deserve it. There are moments where you can tell they're trying but this team just doesn't have the heart that you want to see. This Hawks team has no one that will dive for a loose ball like Kyle Korver would or like Demarre Carroll would. You could argue that Dennis is that guy but he well disappear in games if he starts struggling. Schroder, Millsap, and Bazemore are the only ones that try to play the maximum amount of effort possible every game. It makes me sick to see the Hawks struggle and not play true Hawks basketball like they did during the 60-22 season. I just want a great basketball team and I feel like this team is far far away from greatness.
