TORONTO, ON – MARCH 30: A shot from Dennis Schroder /

4. Toronto Raptors @ Atlanta Hawks

Saturday Nov. 25, 7:30 pm, Phillips Arena

What’s the point in watch this game? Seriously? I’m asking you!

Al Horford migrated to Boston and Jeff Teague was traded away last season. Paul Millsap ditched Atlanta for the Nuggets in this off-season and Dwight Howard was swapped for a bag of chips. Kyle Korver is part of the Cavs now and not even Tim Hardaway Jr. is still part of the roster.

Why would anyone want to watch the Hawks? The gorgeous ball movement that lead to the Hawks 60-win season and their nickname of ‘Spurs East’ is gone.

Their defence is gone with Millsap and Howard’s departure and their 3-point marksman has taken his talents to Cleveland. Sure their uniforms look cool, but nothing else about the franchise is.

This is going to be a firm steam roll by DeRozan and company. I’m not here to watch Dennis Schroder‘s bad decision-making, when I could be making my own on a Saturday night. I have better things to do and so do you.
