If anyone watched the end of the celtics game. Pure class by pp by dribbling out the shot clock and taking a turnover out of respect for his opponent. Then after a turnover rondo fires up a three trying to run up the score. Pure trash!

And in other Hawk news...

The Memphis Griz are sporting a pair.

Darrel Arthur (1.1 million) has improved to 9ppg, 4rpg. He's firmly their 6th man, and while Rudy Gay is out he'll probably have an even greater opportunity in a starting role.

Xavier Henry (2 million) and his paltry contributions are hardly worth mentioning, but he has played in 32 games this year. Okay I'll mention a couple. 11% 3pt. 63% FT. 4pts/game in 14 minutes average. The NBA's salary scale is SO twisted. (more on this later)

Also, ESPN is crediting Kirk Hinrich (9 million) with changing Atlanta's defensive performance which was key to holding off Chicago last night.

Sherron Collins... okay there is no Sherron news, unless you consider that Charlotte could've used him last night to help diffuse the Tar Heel beat down courtesy Denver Nuggets. The $8.5 million Carolina duo of Ty Lawson (1.5 million) and Raymond Felton (7 million) combined for 17 assists and 21 points. These two are playing the exact game Sherron is supposed to be playing to succeed in the NBA. And don't look now, but my Hawkless Nuggets are doing just fine without Melo (17 million) and Chauncey (13 million), and are in position to overtake my Hawk-loaded, Durant-less Thunder for the 4th playoff spot.

Back to twisted NBA salaries.

Kevin Durant: 40mpg. 28ppg. 7rpg (6 million) Nick Collison: 20mpg. 4ppg. 4rpg. (13 million) Go Boy!

Thanks LJW and THANK You KG!

BTW, does anyone know if those were Cole's first points in the NBA? I must say that most of our boys aren't doing too well in the league. I'm not sure if it's a matter of time or some other factor.

Mario is starting for Miami, Pierce is starting for Boston, Rush is one of the first off the bench for Indy, same as Arthur for Memphis. Those 4 arent doing bad . Kirk will get his minutes in Atlanta (so glad he got out of Washington), DJax has been getting a little pt in Sactown, Nick is up and down in Oklahoma, and Cole is atleast on the roster and getting a little time there also. As for X, he's out for the year with a knee injury last I heard. Not sure where Sherrons at or what he's doing, maybe overseas since he got released maybe ? All in all though I wouldnt say our boys are doing bad, I have to disagree fsujhawk. I'd say they're doing alright.
