    With Conley falling, and Hawes off, the hawks need to take Acie Law.

    Hawks have a lot of forwards but not enough centers or point guards.

    I'm thinking that they go big here with Jason Smith.

    They have a couple of nice expiring deals and young players that they could package for a point guard (Bibby?) and even if they can't make that work, Anthony Johnson/Speedy Claxton/Tyronn Lue are servicable until maybe the trade deadline.

    Law IV is, of course, a realistic option as well, but then they'd have 4 PGs, so another move (or two) would need to be made.

    There have been rumors of this pick getting traded to Portland for Jarrett Jack, too.

    Well, since they grabbed a big man at #3, I think it's a no brainer to take the PG here. I've seen some mocks having them take Crittinton (not sure if that is based on the local ties from Georgia Tech). I thought Law was rated higher but most sites now have Jarvis higher (maybe he had a great workout).

    I'm going to go with the local connection, and also the PG that can break down a defense and get the young wings the ball.

    Phil Wenneck: The man purse. You actually gonna wear that or are you just fuckin' with me?
    Alan Garner: It's where I keep all my things. Get a lot of compliments on this. Plus it's not a purse, it's called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one.

    3 posts, 3 different players, an hour to go.

    This one could get ugly.

    We need some more opinions, please.

    They already went big, so...

    Hawks select - Javaris Crittenton

    The local product, and he appears to have much more upside than Law.

    The Hawks select - Acie Law

    I thought he was too, but Ford and NBAdraft.net both have Jarvis rated higher.

    Javaris seems to be rated higher all around, so i'll pick him for the Hawks. they'll look to take the best available talent.
