I heard some Atlanta people were unhappy with the JJ signing, and looking for a PG that could distribute the ball to all their swingmen...Runi? Throw in Jax to add another scorer, plus Crosh for cap space:
edit: Atlanta wouldn't bite, the more I think about it, but I'll leave it out there to see if it gets anyone thinking about other ideas.

We should all get down on our knees and kiss the feet of Donnie Walsh and Larry Bird if that trade went down.

But that's not going to happen. The Hawks got rid of one of their owners and the Most Improved Player, Boris Diaw, so they could get Johnson. They're not going to let him go easily, and definitely not for a Runi/Jackson/Croshere combo.

Hey, Billy Knight still owes us for handing the 2004 ECFs to Detroit.

I'll take that trade without even thinking for a split second. Too bad it would make Atlanta look like supreme idiots.

You know who Atlanta should trade JJ for? That guy on the Suns, Diaw. Heck, maybe they could get a couple draft picks thrown in. That would be a great deal for Atlanta.

This is the kind of "OutOfMyAss" trades Donnie will need if he plans on contending next season.

I personally think there's no possible way Atlanta would trade JJ for anything less than an equivilent player (and there's not many of those). I'd throw something together on the Trade Machine except that they're not going to want a collection of lesser players. They'll want a star. I don't think you could put together a trade for JJ that didn't include Granger.

That being said, if we got an SG like JJ, I'd be completely ok with keeping AJ as our starting point guard.

Just think, our backcourt could be "Big Johnson" and "Little Johnson."

:laugh:

You'd think not, but they're also the Atlanta Hawks. There's always hope.

And :laugh: at the Johnson & Johnson backcourt.

Man, how did I miss that? Johnson & Johnson... :D

Seriously, if you can get that kind of SG, then AJ might be the perfect point guard for the team. But who's out there? If we'd struck at the trading deadline, I believe we could have gotten Paul Pierce. But now he's firmly entrenched in Boston. JJ ain't going nowhere. Same with Redd, TMac, Wade, Allen, and Kobe.

I really don't see a lot of upgrades from Jack, to be honest. I'm not sure what we'll do.

Only way you might see a Johnson and Johnson backcourt, involving the Hawks Johnson, is if JO were traded to Atlanta for JJ and Al in a sign and trade. Interested?

How... interesting. Al as the new starting PF?

Man, I just went and checked his stats. And I thought JO was a terrible rebounder.

That's really interesting, actually. Jermaine's got a home in Atlanta, right?

Not only would the Hawks have to be insane to take this trade, but there is no way in the world that they would take Jack back. Never in a million years.
