i fought the law and the horford won.

you may have previously read this author’s intention to become a fan of the atlanta hawks. they seem like just the kind of lovable losers i am bound to support anyway (although some who have lived in this town longer than i probably remember a time when than wasn’t the case for the hawks.)

late this week the hawks used their two top 15 draft picks to draft florida power forward al horford and texas a&m point guard acie law iv.

now i am new to the whole basketball gig so i’m not really sure what to make of these picks but matt over at the atlanta hawks blog certainly has some opinions.

first on horford:

Horford is ready to play, even more so than Shelden Williams was. I wanted Conley (obviously), but I’m happy with this.

and next on law:

like this pick. I am not convinced that the way Law played in college is the kind of player he’s going to be in the pros. I think he’s smart and that he will make a great point guard.

over on the creative loafing fresh loaf blog scott freeman has additional thoughts on the hawks draft including some caution about horford.

    The Hawks ceased to be lovable for me when they ran off the greatest athlete in the history of this city (that started his career here anyway, Aaron’s heart was always in Milwaukee).

    A Cubs-like run at futility might just be the proper atonement for that injustice.
