2004-05 Good Call Hawks

Now that we've gone through all the roster transactions, let's take a look at the roster for the 04-05 Good Call Hawks and find out the results of the season. First the depth chart I will use for the season:

PG - Tyronn Lue, Chris Duhon
SG - Tony Delk, Andre Iguodala
SF - Boris Diaw, Trevor Ariza, Damien Wilkins
PF - Antoine Walker, Al Harrington, Josh Smith
C - Joel Przybilla, Pedrag Drobnjak

The first impression in seeing this roster is awe that the team won any games. The center position is rough, and so is the SG position. Since Jon Barry got traded for Lue pretty early in the season, I will just use him for the whole time. Since Walker was with the team about half the year, I used him for about half the games simulated. There was not too much of a dropoff since the PF minutes simply went to Harrington.

Despite the fact that the only changes were changing out some of the rookie picks, the simulation produced a slight increase in wins. In reality the Hawks record in the 04-05 season was 13-69. The Good Call Hawks went 17-65, which is still the worst record in the NBA. So there is an incremental change, but nothing severe.

However, with another offseason and a chance to change the Marvin Williams pick, there is hope on the horizon.
