Jeff Teague to Start at Point Guard for the Hawks

After some indecision with Kirk Hinrich out of the picture for the time being, the Hawks are putting their trust in the second-year point guard to steer their offense against the Bulls tonight (and defend Derrick Rose.) Um, yeah, good luck with that: “Atlanta’s Larry Drew said that Jeff Teague will start at PG tonight.”

    HAHAHAHAHA yes go bulls!

    D. Rose is about to annihilate this guy. “too big, too fast, too strong.”

  • Booo!

    Actually, Hawks fans have wanted Jeff to start since he was drafted in 09′ Our coaches just dont like playing young playes. We’ve wanted LD to be ifred this whole season because of it. All I have to say is get ready to bend over cuz Teague is a beast.

  • Booo!
  • Booo!


  • Brandon

    @bcool after watching the 4 min clip of his entire career highlights you just proved my point. D Rose is about to annihilate this guy. D Rose’s top plays from this season alone are better then anything this guy has ever done in his

    good luck kid, you’ll need it


    i know right brandon knows whats up.. haha that video was a waste of time and some horrible music too sucks to be a hawks fan

  • Yesse

    I think Rose is too much to handle for him.

  • Bulls2011champs

    Correction. You KNOW this Yesse!

    jeff teague is actually really good i’ve heard..hopefully he can step up. but i doubt it.

  • Timshel

    None of us Hawks fans think Teague is anywhere near Rose’s level. But he is good enough to where he should have been playing more. It’s not his fault he’s been stuck with two idiot coaches who don’t know how to develop young players. Don’t sleep on Teague.

  • cp

    Funny how all u haters can talk sh*t about people but what r u doing wit ur life real talks Jeff Teague is raw

  • cp

    no bodies sayin dat jeffs on Roses level but how u counting the young point guard out before the game is even played dats jus stupid

  • Dubli

    Rose my fav player but Tea can play for sure.

  • Bryan

    They needed Hinrich to guard Rose. Teague is in fact going to get lit up. I think there are some people with backup QB synrome down south if they think this guy is a starter on a 2nd round playoff team

  • Booo!

    Dude, Kirk Got LIT UP the last two times we played Chicago this season! It was terrible, go look it up! Futhermore imma be back after Teague goes off tonight. We play better with Teague in the starting lineup thats a fact ask any hawks fan. Just because out coach is a hater doesnt mean the fan base doesnt have any sense.

  • fruizm

    JT is much faster than hinrich though…maybe that will help…HAHA.

  • Angel of Stern

    why is everyone hatin on jeff teague? Noone is claiming he is on the same level as Rose (or anywhere near it for that matter) but damn, dude has talent.

  • Brandon

    Everybody in the NBA has talent. That’s why their professional basketball players. But D Rose has extraordinary talent and he will put JT in the blender. Rose is about to drop a easy 30

    I told you fools about Teague. Dude is legit. It’s not his fault his coaches have been sleeping on him.

  • Booo!

    Where that talk at now! I’m back dammit What was thad trash about rose! Talk that stuff now!


  • Booo!

    Smh….I TOLD YOU!

  • Bryan

    Teague didn’t do anything to lose the game for them. If that makes you “legit” in the NBA then I guess I was wrong to say it was a big mismatch. Derrick doesn’t seem to have it going offensively right now, especially his outside game.

    I’m not terribly discouraged. If the Hawks manage to win this series shooting contested or ill advised jumpers then I will take my hat off to them. Hawks fans: Does Josh Smith always take those brain dead jumpers? He played stupid most of the night on offense…

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/officerbarbrady what

    Holding the MVP of the league to 41% shooting and zero free throw attempts while putting up 11 and 5 yourself against the league’s best D despite having no plays called for you and deferring to the 2 guards the entire game is legit, yes.

  • fruizm

    still….bulls in 6.

  • Booo!

    If 46pts and 20 rebs from Dwight can’t beat us……that’s all i’m sayin’

  • Bryan

    He played well but Rose missed shots, lots of them. And it didn’t have much at all to do with his D

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Played pretty darn well tonight. Teagues can actually keep up with Rose’s speed, to a degree–his footspeed is just as fast. Maybe this will work out to Atlanta’s advantage (having Teague guard Rose as opposed to anyone else).

  • Booo!

    Rose took brain-dead shots too. He’s not a 3pt shooter. And wasn’r ge supposed to “easily” drop 30 points last night?

  • jedi420

    I though Teague did a pretty good job in that situation… watching Josh Smith play is painful though, why he can’t figure out to get low and be aggressive and just beast fools under the hoop.. I dunno man, there’s something bad about this Hawks team, it’s like they are too cool to work hard.. the only time you really see one their guys playing with fire in their bellies on defense is after they just made a jumper or something haha.. Horford’s pretty tough though, he seems to play hard consistently.
