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.

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.

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.

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...

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. An NBA team is typically both too far away from contending for a title, yet also too far away from committing to a proper rebuild that could pay real...
