Mike Woodson Does Not Appreciate Your Comments On His Team, Jon Barry

Monday, May 04, 2009

Let's be honest here before getting into the post. Nobody thought the Hawks were going to make it past the Heat, and some of the games were downright unwatchable. So when Jon Barry says that the series might be the "worst seven game series ever", it's not that much of a stretch. Hawks' Coach Mike Woodson, seems to disagree though, and even brings in Barry's playing career as a way of making his point. Via Sports Radio Interviews....

“Man, I could care less about what Jon Barry is saying. That’s what he’s doing what he’s doing and we’re doing what we’re doing. What he says don’t amount to nothing. Again, I don’t even know why I’ve wasted my words on Jon Barry. My focus right now is with my team and trying to get ready for Cleveland. I’m trying to figure out what has he done in the league, really. That’s just how I look at. I’m moving on.”
Well that's one way to take criticism, I guess. I mean, the guy did have 12 points in 3 minutes, during a Playoff game. But when you played for eight teams in your fourteen year career, you're going to get the criticism. Even if one of those teams was the Hawks.

Nobody thought the higher-seeded team with homecourt advantage and a better roster was going to win??

He has a point in questioning Barry's credentials, but JB was right.

That series was just awful. Every game was a blowout, and barring a couple flagrants was unwatchable.

Ironically, both people are right. Woodson's team sucks and Jon Barry has no room to criticize.

John Barry played 14 years in the NBA not because he was the most talented or athletic but because he understood the game and how to play. He is also able to articulate a point well. Not only that is the point he made about the series was absolutely true.

Well, if the Hawks are searching for motivation, the WWL has given them numerous promptings.
