Welcome to “Pretty Much Screwed,” our definitive guide to the upcoming NBA season. This team-by-team preview details why it’s probably not your favorite team’s year.

Hard to tell what’s going on here, exactly: there’s the woman in pink, a blonde sitting a row behind and a security official at the Hawks-Magic game on Saturday night.

From Friday night’s Hawks game, in which an Atlanta fan named Kevin had a chance at $1,000. The shot — terrible form by the way, never shoot like that, Kevin — ended up getting stuck on the back rim. Bless the coolest Doofy White Guy MC ever for the assist. [Hot Clicks, The Point Forward]
We talked some about Kevin Durant utterly dominating the Hawks last night in the morning roundup post, but it deserves another look – specifically, one sequence from the middle of the fourth quarter. See what we mean after the jump.
