Hawks at a glance
Antoine Walker and Al Harrington have a lot at stake. Walker wants to put up big numbers in his contract year. Harrington had six good seasons in Indiana, but now he's a full-time starter. More minutes and more touches give him a chance to prove he's got game.
The two potential All-Stars offer reason for hope in the A.T.L., but not enough to think about postseason play.
|The starters: Plenty of shooters. No rebounders. The shooters had better stay hot.|
|PF||Antoine Walker||And you thought he was a chucker in Boston and Dallas||7|
|SF||Al Harrington||Sixth Man runner-up could make All-Star as a starter||7|
|C||Jason Collier||Shaq must be shaking in his sneakers||5|
|SG||Josh Childress||Needs time to grow his game ... but not his 'fro||5|
|PG||Kenny Anderson||There was a time he was a star ... just not now||6|
|BENCH||Boris Diaw can score. Vet guards Tony Delk and Jon Barry will contribute. But high schooler Josh Smith could be sensational. Believe it.||4|
