A Letter to the Hawks/ 12 Radio

Dear Atlanta Hawks,

The season is over. I know you didn't need me to tell you that it's over. You saw it end just like I did. It was ugly. Four straight losses to the Orlando Magic. To say that we didn't play well would be an understatement. We played horrible. And I said WE because I'm a fan. I come to Phillips Arena every chance I get and sit in my seat. I don't wanna lose sight of the fact that we won 53 games this year. The team has improved every year under head coach Mike Woodson.

I hate to say that we quit but um...we quit.

It's time for Mike Woodson to go.

I know that his contract ends next month. He wants to get an extension. I don't know about that. We lost 4 straight to Orlando. Not only did we lose but we lost by an average of 23 points. We lost Game 1 by 43 points! Who loses by 43 points in a playoff game. Then we lose by 30 points at HOME in Atlanta. Maybe it's time for a change. Maybe Mike has taken this team as far as they can go. Mike can't play for the team. We need a center. We had no answer for Dwight Howard. Then again...who does? We could have had Phil Jackson on the sidelines and it wouldn't have mattered.

Joe Johnson. He's our All-Star. His contract is up. He want's a new deal that would pay him 16M a year. I like Joe. I've met him before. Cool dude. Joe did not show up in the playoffs. If he wants to get paid like the league's best player, he's gonna have to average more than the 13 points that he did verses Orlando. That's not acceptable. If you want to be a Hawk next year, you've gotta play better. Period.

As a team, we're at a crossroads. We've got to go forward...right now. What are we gonna do?

Man, at least you guys had a decent season. The Hawks haven't put up a decent season since Lenny was the coach back in the 90's (as far as I know - I stopped following them) and I can't remember the last time they made it to the second round of the playoffs.

I feel your pain as I am a Cavs fan, your coach is gone and hope that ours is soon to follow.
