Atlanta Hawks Tickets on Sale

The Atlanta Hawks still have shooting guard Joe Johnson, forward Josh Smith, and center/power forward Al Horford on the roster as the big three. They give the Hawks a solid scorer on the perimeter and on the block with Johnson. Smith is an uber-athlete who might be finally learning to play inside of 15 feet. Horford is not a great scorer, but he is a solid rebounder who has enough bulk to provide some strong side defense.

The starting lineup is completed with center Zaza Pachulia and point guard Kirk Hinrich. Pachulia adds some midrange shooting and Hinrich is a solid defender who strengthens the perimeter defense, which is a much development after a couple seasons with Mike Bibby letting guards routinely penetrate. Add Marvin Williams coming off the bench and this club is set with a six-man rotation before even thinking about free agency. Add a couple more pieces to give the team some size and the Hawks could be ready for a Southeast Division run.

Atlanta Hawks History

The Atlanta Hawks began playing in 1946, starting in Buffalo as the Bisons. The franchise moved around quite a bit until 1968. The team moved from to the Tri-Cities to Milwaukee , shortening the new name from the Blackhawks to the Hawks. One more move to St. Louis gave the Hawks some sort of consistently, staying and playing for 13 seasons. Then, after 1968, the Hawks found a place to stay and grow old in Atlanta.

The Hawks best run came when they played in St. Louis. There they won the NBA championship in 1958 and four Western Conference titles. Hall of Fame forward Bob Pettit took the basketball team from the basement to the top thanks to his ability to score and rebound. Ed Macauley and Cliff Hagan were the key additions to the club to put the team over the edge and bring home the lone franchise NBA championship in 1958. This was the lone year the Hawks were able to the Boston Celtics. They would meet two more times in the NBA Finals during the Celtics legendary run.

Shooting guard Dominique Wilkins became the next superstar for the Atlanta Hawks in 1982. The Hawks drafted him and three years later the team would join the elite of the Eastern Conference, winning at least 50 games from the 1985-86 season until the 1988-89. The Celtics and Pistons were impassable roadblocks though, and kept these Wilkins led teams out of the NBA Finals.

Future Hawk squads would keep the franchise competitive with players like Dikembe Mutombo, Steve Smith, and Shareef Abdur-Rahim could not return Atlanta to the conference finals. TheSeats has the Atlanta Hawks tickets for the new season schedule at the Philips Arena.
