The Namesake is Down!
Kirk Hinrich, the inspiration and motivation for this entire movement known as The Hinrich Maneuver, has officially been listed as doubtful for tonight's opening second round playoff game against the Chicago Bulls with a pulled right hamstring. Hinrich suffered the injury while landing awkwardly after a layup in the Hawks series clinching victory against the Orlando Magic last Friday. Jeff Teague has been enlisted to try and step in and fill Hinrich's shoes as the starting point guard for the game, but lets be reality, NO ONE can fill those mammoth sneakers. Let us all fastidiously hope and pray that Kirk experiences a quick recovery and returns later in the series. Godspeed Kirk.
