The Hawks' Triumph Of Maxing Out What They Could Accomplish

You could pen several dusty, forlorn country tunes about the Atlanta Hawks. They've done nearly everything right over the past few years and their thanks has been getting blasted off the court in two consecutive postseasons by the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were literally built overnight and who are as notable for their locker room bickering as their occasionally incandescent basketball...

The Hawks’ changes shouldn’t be substantial — not yet

As soon as the Atlanta Hawks were eviscerated in Game 2 of their series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, it became apparent the Eastern Conference semifinal would not last more than five games. For the second straight season, the Hawks found no answers and no hope against the Cavs. There’s no shame in the losing itself, because Atlanta was the inferior team in each instance. However...

Hubie Brown’s commentary got a little racy during Cavs-Hawks

We love Hubie Brown.  He’s a broadcasting legend and one of the more interesting people to listen to call a game.  Hubie is fantastic at breaking down X’s and O’s and there’s a special feeling we all get whenever he talks about the “painted area.” Today during Cavs-Hawks Game 4, Hubie said this: Even Hubie makes that sound like an important basketball sequence and...

Tyronn Lue is doing well, but larger verdicts must wait

Americans are notoriously impatient, and no matter what anyone might want to say about Tyronn Lue, there’s only one responsible way to view his presence as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Simply stated, we can’t say anything particularly profound about Lue — at least not anything which can be taken seriously — until the NBA Finals run their course. It’s not...

The Atlanta Hawks couldn’t do anything to stop what the Cleveland Cavaliers threw their way during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Wednesday.
