He stole my idea for the dunk contest ... although my (impossible) twist on the idea was doing the moonsault off of the top of the shot clock, then executing a forward roll (i.e. corkscrew moonsault) into the dunk.

Originally posted by Psycho PenguinI think Marvin Williams is playing like a 2nd pick in a draft for the first time in his NBA career. (I say this as someone who hasn't watched a ton of Hawks games, but I've heard a ton of talk about how much of a bust he's been. StingArmy can correct me if I'm wrong.)
Where amazing happens indeed.
I don't think Hawks fans consider him a bust, but you have to realize we picked him when we could have had Chris Paul. We didn't get Bibby until a couple of seasons ago, and while he has been absolutely fantastic for us and key to our recent run of playoff appearances, he is not now nor has he ever been Chris Paul. So any talk you hear about Marvin being a bust is merely because he will never do for us what Chris Paul could and should have done.
That being said, watching them play live last night and seeing what Marvin is capable of doing, I totally forgot that he was our 2nd pick that year. Our team is so heavily dependent on Joe Johnson, Josh Smith, and Jamal Crawford (and Al Horford and Bibby to an extent), Marvin is really looked at as only our sixth most important player.
