The Landlord Finishes Strong

Guess who’s taking home the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month Award for April? That’s right, none other than our very own rookie punching bag himself, Shelden Williams. I’ll admit that I was as down on this dude as anyone midway through the season. But if his late season push was any indication, he’s got a chance to be a contributor (and not the total bust some were forecasting him to be two months ago). That ought to be the last bit of real Hawks-related news out there until next month, when the draft lottery dominates every drip drop of our conversation until May 22. So maybe it’s time for us to move on, sort of.”
