The Atlanta Hawks Are a Breath of Fresh Air to the NBA

Team basketball seems like it’s an afterthought, but I think the Atlanta Hawks may have something to say about that . NBA Basketball in the “A” has been pretty dormant for the past few years. A few playoff runs by Joe Johnson and Josh Smith created a little buzz in Atlanta, but it was just a blip on the radar. After GM Danny Ferry unloaded Johnson’s big salary, and decided...

Al Horford shouldn’t be defined by the position he plays

Atlanta Hawks’ center Al Horford has had several labels throughout his playing career. At the University of Florida, he was a “champion”  and an “Associated Press All-American”. Going into the 2007 NBA Draft, he was a “can’t miss prospect” and later a “top-three pick”. In his seven-plus years with the Hawks, he’s been an “All-Star center“, an “All-NBA...

Al Horford is the Atlanta Hawks’ mid-season MVP

Al Horford has been injury-prone over the past couple of seasons, but he has been on the court and a huge presence for the Atlanta Hawks this season. The Hawks are currently sporting a 36-8 record, which is good for first place in the Eastern Conference. It is so hard to pick out a mid-season MVP for the Hawks with how balanced they have been this year, but Horford is the pick...

Rebounding and lack of a star player will doom the Atlanta Hawks in the playoffs

The Atlanta Hawks have been one of the most impressive teams in the NBA this season. The Hawks are 35-8, which is the best record in the Eastern Conference at this time. The Hawks are also on a 14 game win streak, which puts the team in a tie with the 1993-94 team for the franchise record. Head coach Mike Budenholzer will undoubtedly be the coach of the year if his team keeps...

Hawks' bench potent compliment behind defense, mindset

ATLANTA -- Naturally, it's the Hawks offensive approach that draws the most comparisons to the Spurs, where coach Mike Budenholzer studied for 19 years. As LeBron James said a month ago, Atlanta's sets are "identical" to those of Greg Popovich. But as the Pacers' Frank Vogel sees it, the influence of the San Antonio system goes even deeper. "Pop was the first one, really, to understand...

Are the Atlanta Hawks legit title contenders?

ATLANTA, Ga. — Go back 11 years ago, to the days where a forgotten superstar team was built. I’m talking about the 2003-04 Los Angeles Lakers. There was already Shaq and Kobe who were coming off a disappointing 2003 season after 3-peating and owning the league. But the huge LA market couldn’t stand being down in the dumps for more than a year, so they went out and got Gary...

Report: Hank Aaron is trying to buy the Atlanta Hawks

Former Atlanta Braves slugger Hank Aaron is interested in buying the Atlanta Hawks as part of a group bidding on them. The Hawks just went on sale this past week and should sell for a pretty penny.

Are the Atlanta Hawks the 'Spurs East'?

At the end of last season, the Atlanta Hawks were in what long-term-minded fans might consider the very worst position in the league: after finishing 38–44, they were bounced in the first round as the East’s sub-.500 eight seed.
