Not OT: Atlanta Spirit Gives Mike Woodson a Two-Year Extension
The Thrashers are doomed. Their Atlanta Spirit ownership is absolutely useless.
Atlanta Spirit has given Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson a two year extension. The team has only improved thanks to recent trades and drafting, not because of Woodson (and the Bibby trade didn't really pan out). He's uninspiring, can't coach in the clutch, and can't run offensive plays when needed. Against the Celtics, the Hawks were blown out of the building in every road game (when coaching is imperative) but won at home with the crowd (not Woodson) willing the team to win.
Atlanta Spirit is a disaster, and the Thrashers are doomed.
I fully expect DW to be forced by Atlanta Spirit to hire the wrong guy as Thrashers' coach.
It's bad enough that Waddell gets to keep his job!
