In Episode 016 of the Dukes Dump, Carl Dukes starts with a special message to Orlando City SC fans.

Atlanta United won a big rivalry match Sunday in Orlando. The hardfought, 2-1 victory was clouded by a number of flops near the end of the match by Orlando City players and a fan base that showered the field with debris when a flop didn't get called.

Dukes broke down the state of the rivalry a bit before moving on to the Atlanta Hawks.

The Hawks hired Lloyd Pierce to be their new head coach. While coaching is paramount in the NBA, Dukes believes it as, or even more important, to have quality general management.

Dukes pointed toward Danny Ainge with the Boston Celtics as a situation the Hawks need to emulate. Brad Stevens has taken strides as a young coach, but Ainge has built this current franchise. Travis Schlenk, the Hawks' GM, needs to follow in Ainge's footsteps.
