Make no bones about it. Coach Mike D'Antoni's skeleton roster was no match for the opportunistic Charlotte Bobcats and Al Jefferson's dominating presence in the paint.
It took three quarters, but the Charlotte Bobcats finally were able to shut down Blake Griffin.
John Wall was sprawled out on the floor in front of him doing stretching exercises. A.J. Price sat across from him, his soft cast in his lap and a stimulation machine on his broken right hand. Shelvin Mack sat next to him, wearing oversized headphones and checking his cellphone.
When his phone rang late Saturday night, Shelvin Mack had no idea it would be from the team that let him go just before training camp, the Washington Wizards.
Not content to stand pat after a fifth-place finish and first-round playoff exit, the Atlanta Hawks went through a wholesale makeover in the offseason. Danny Ferry was hired as the new president and general manager in June, after spending five seasons as the general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers and last season as president of the San Antonio Spurs.

"I felt something pull or something," Pargo said. "I'm not too sure what it is right now. I'm thinking maybe cartilage, like, attached to the ribs. But we're not sure right now. I didn't get hit. That's the scary part about it."
"It's really tough [to be hurt]," Pargo said. "Especially when I know all the guys are hurting. We've been going really hard the last three days. It hurts to be out and watch them go through practice and not be out there with them."
