Hawks Forced To Adjust Twitter Avatar Amid 17-Game Win Streak

Atlanta Hawks

NBA diehards have a nearly infinite amount of reasons to glean joy from the Atlanta Hawks’ success. Among the most meta of them is that the team’s official twitter account ushered in the increasingly engaging and witty social media accounts of squads throughout the league over the past couple years. And now that the Hawks are dominating, their tweet game has reached an all-time high – such a height, in fact, that they’ve had to adjust their twitter avatar. Read More »

The Hawks May Get Four All-Star Reserves, But We Doubt It Will Happen

Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, Al Horford

We already know who is starting the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, and noon today was the deadline for the coach’s picks sliding in seven more players per conference with two more guards, three more frontcourt players and two wildcards. With the East’s best team, the Hawks, whiffing on a starting nod (Jeff Teague finished eighth in the backcourt fan voting, and Paul Millsap was 10th in the East’s frontcourt), some are predicting four Hawks fill out the seven reserve spots in the East. We really hope this happens and they all get to share the court for a stretch, but we doubt it’ll happen. Read More »

Video: Al Horford Rises To Swat Serge Ibaka’s Towering Layup Attempt

Al Horford, Serge Ibaka

Few players in the league are big and athletic enough to give Serge Ibaka a true taste of his own medicine at the rim. Al Horford, though, is certainly among them.

Elton Brand Won’t Pay Out On Bet After Kyle Korver’s “Fingertip Dunk”

Kyle Korver

During last night’s 110-91 Hawks win over the Pacers, their 14th consecutive victory, Kyle Korver did something he hasn’t done in an NBA game in two years and has only done 16 times over his 11-plus year career. He dunked. In fact, he was all set to collect $100 from veteran teammate Elton Brand but Brand claims he’s not paying out for Korver’s “fingertip dunk.” We’ll explain. Read More »

Video: Al Horford Powers Through Amir Johnson For Poster jam

Al Horford

Jeff Teague sets the table. Paul Millsap gets the numbers. And Kyle Korver bends the defense. In our opinion, though, Al Horford is the Atlanta Hawks’ best player – it’s about time we gave him some due. Watch the should-be All-Star get Jonas Valanciunas in the air and drive baseline for an authoritative dunk on Amir Johnson in his team’s 110-89 win over the Toronto Raptors. Read More »

Video: Kent Bazemore Puts Crazy Wingspan To Full Effect For Big Block

Marcus Smart, Kent Bazemore

The Atlanta Hawks play perhaps the most aesthetically pleasing brand of offense in basketball. Believe it or not, though, it’s the play of Mike Budenholzer’s team on the other end that’s spurred them to such great heights in 2014-2015. Watch Atlanta offseason acquisition and defensive ace drive home that reality and Kent Bazemore put his nearly seven-foot wingspan to perfect use on this massive chase-down block of Marcus Smart during his team’s win over the Boston Celtics last night.
