well sooner or later Atlanta was going to have to get it right. they've drafted Forwards in the draft (always really high picks) for what 4 or 5 years now.
Childress, J.Smith, M.Williams, S. Willaims, and now Horford. I mean how many high draft pick Forwards do you need on 1 team. like others have said, somebody needs to tell their management that there are other positions available in the draft.........say......................POINT GUARD.

Find it dificult to call a two-time champion and top 5 all-time center a mistake. Jordan's the greatest, and Dream was drafted before him, but there's no guarantee that if Jordan had gone to the Rockets that he would've won 6 championships.

He has the ability to be a Tmac level talent,

Don't agree with that. He has the smooth jumpshot, but him attacking the basket is anything but smooth and he often gets his shot blocked. I think reaching his full potential he is closer to an Antwan Jamison.

i really wasn't expecting to much from him comiing out of the draft he has a good all around game. I can see him becoming a all star caliber palyer given that he stays on track.

I picked marvin up out of free agency in my fantasy league. he's no bust.

i'll admit i've seen him play very little though... at least in the pros.

Marvin is still the Tim Thomas/Keith Van Horn of his generation.

He's getting a lot of minutes now because Zaza is hurt and Horford has to play center. When Zaza comes back, Horford will get more run at 4, and Smith can play more at 3.

Williams's defense still sucks, and his rebounding isn't that much better.

The sooner Williams is traded away the better.

Honestly him being god if anything means I was right on my first impression of him, and then wrong in writing him off so early. Either way hope he keeps his play up to this level, a player with the talent and athleticism he has should be a borderline all-star if he puts in the effort.
