Entering just the third year of a Danny Ferry-led overhaul, the Atlanta Hawks are already a whole new team. With aggressive ownership and a fan base yearning for a team they can get behind, Ferry is engineering wholesale organizational change. Next season, the Hawks are ready to soar.
A Brief History
Founded as the Buffalo Bison in the mid-1940s, the Atlanta Hawks made stops in Moline (Illinois), Milwaukee and St. Louis - where they won their sole NBA championship on a team led by all-timer Bob Pettit - before arriving in Atlanta in 1968.
Playing home games in the iconic Omni for a quarter century, the Hawks featured stars “Pistol” Pete Maravich, Lou Hudson, Walt Bellamy and Moses Malone. But far and away the player most associated with the Atlanta Hawks is Dominique Wilkins aka “The Human Highlight Reel.” A prolific and acrobatic scorer, Wilkins lit up the Atlanta skyline for a dozen years and put the Hawks in the global spotlight.
Though the franchise boasts just the one NBA title, the Hawks have been among the most consistent playoff teams in the league. With the exception of one four-year period in the mid-70s and an eight-year playoff drought in the 2000s, the Hawks haven’t missed consecutive post-season bids since the 1950s.
A New Era Begins
With leading rebounder Paul Millsap and leading scorer Al Horford, the Hawks have two of the most rapidly improving players in the NBA. Re-signing sharpshooter Kyle Korver was huge as he stretches opposing defenses as well as anyone in the game. In the draft, the Hawks brought in German pro Dennis Schroeder who has drawn comparisons to Rajon Rondo and Ricky Rubio. New head coach Mike Budenholzen has high hopes for both of these newcomers.
Ball Night in the ATL
With Al Horford, Jeff Teague and Paul Millsap forming the nucleus in Atlanta and a couple of young studs with unlimited upside on the way in, the Hawks have built a new team. Head out to Philips Arena, where ScoreBig helps you save on every ticket, every day.
