SU Players Filling Up Back End of NBA Rankings

It is worth noting, though, that there are 30 NBA teams, who can carry a maximum of 15 players each, so at any given time there are really only 450 "NBA players". That means that roughly half of the players who fall in this range will not actually be a part of the league when the season begins in late October.

And so the Atlanta Hawks begin this morning the long climb back to respectability, after a week of increasingly awful tales involving ownership and the team's general manager, now on a leave of absence that was as voluntary as the Army was back in 1942.
