The Atlanta Hawks are proving they’re legit

Prior to Thanksgiving, I wasn’t sure what to make of the Hawks.

Atlanta Hawks: Early season preview

The last time we saw the Atlanta Hawks, they fell to the Indiana Pacers in game seven in the first round of the Eastern conference playoffs. Instead of looking at the loss as yet another first-round playoff exit, Hawks fans can take some positivity and hope away from last year’s finale. For starters, the Hawks MVP Al Horford was lost early in the season, which changed the game...

ATLANTA -- Speaking for the first time since he suffered a torn right pectoral muscle on Dec. 26, Hawks center Al Horford was in a good mood on Thursday, laughing at his own expense at the injury that has ended his season.
