Rick and John caught up with Mike Budenholzer as the Hawks prepare for the 2017 NBA Playoffs.
Rick gave coach the opportunity to exhale with the end of the regular season. Coach Bud talked about the wild weekend for the Hawks and beating the Cavs two games in a row; once in overtime and then coming back from down 25. He called it “wild wild wild.” They talked about the last five games of the regular season and how they were all about the defense and how they stepped up. Coach talked about the health of the team and how lucky they are to have healthy bodies.
He provided a preview of Washington and the players they will need to focus on. Finally, they talked about college coaches going to the NBA as head coaches before becoming assistants or smaller positions.
