Danny Ferry: Why He May Be The Atlanta Hawks Most Important Tangible.

ATLANTA — The most important intangible for the Atlanta Hawks for the upcoming 2012-13 NBA season is Executive Vice President/General Manager Danny Ferry.

Ferry, who came to the Hawks from the San Antonio Spurs, brings not only excitement with the hire, but experience in getting the job done in bringing NBA championship caliber teams, like he did  with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Spurs.

For years the Atlanta Spirit have been criticized for not doing enough as owners to make the Hawks a legitimate contender and signing guard Joe Johnson to a ridiculous free agent contract. Now, the Hawks have excitement from the fan base base as well as NBA players to be here. There has not  been this much excitement since the days of Dominique Wilkins.

One of Ferry’s first moves was to deal Johnson and his outrageous contract to the Brooklyn Nets and Marvin Williams, who some have felt was a bad draft pick years ago to Utah for guard Devin Harris. Lou Williams, who is from Snellvile, GA, was signed as a free agent turning a lot of heads, including mine.

This is in addition to drafting explosive shooting guard John Jenkins–who can light up the scoreboard–from Vanderbilt and Mike Scott of Virginia.

With these additions along with veterans Josh Smith and Al Hordord who’ll be returning, this team as a whole will be certainty one to watch as they compete to unseat the defending NBA champion Miami Heat as the Southeastern Conference Champions. But if they do, remember it started at the top with Ferry.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.
