Hawks-Celtics Round 2:  Let's add the W!  My keys to the game:  1. Limit the turnovers- 10 or under would be ideal.  2. Defend the perimeter- limit those 3 point attempts. Under 10 would be great. Force them to drive inside.  3. Smart offensive positions- Don't automatically just chuck up a 3 with 18 seconds left on the shot clock (some situations would allow this, but not when you have everyone around you.) 4. Convert Free Throws- This will be a physical matchup and the Hawks will end up going to the line a bunch.  Let's make those buckets count!  5. Limit the double team traps- It's effective sometimes, but that can lead to an easy pass to a cutter (like Jebekro in the lane) or an open 3 elsewhere on the court.  6. Be aggressive from the opening tip to the final buzzer of the game.  As always, Stay True Atlanta!  #atlanta #atlantahawks #hawks #atl #atlhawks #truetoatl #truetoatlanta #true2atlanta #staytrueatlanta #gohawks #hawksnation #atlhawksnation #nba #nbabasketball #dennisschroder #beattheceltics #rivalry #hawksvsceltics
A Hardwood Classics Legend in the ATL: The big man, Kevin Willis.  This man dominated the paint and played tough. They didn't come any tougher than Willis.

So lately I keep reading "we suck" "trash" "L" whatever the case may be, due to the fact that we have been losing quite a bit this season and to some teams that on paper, we should have beat.  Do we actually suck though as an organization?  I mean yes, we don't have a championship since the 70's and that was back in the St. Louis days, so the city of Atlanta has not won a championship from the Hawks.  Let's just forget that for a moment, there are many great teams that have not won championships or have not won one in a long time: Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets when they had Melo, Timberwolves, Knicks (at least not in a long time), Pacers, Kings in the early 2000s, Suns back when they had Nash, Stoudemire, and Marion, the list goes on.  From 2003-2007 The Hawks have perfomed pretty poorly (granted the Hawks actually made it close to .500 and made the 8th seed in the playoffs in 07' for the first time since 1998). Atlanta has made the playoffs 8 straight seasons since 07. For a team that has not done much in terms of having a "superstar" or a "super team"  I think that stat is pretty impressive, especially when you think about how they were doing this around the time that the big 3 Celtics, Heat, Cavs, were dominating in the East.  Now Were there some dips since 2007.  Mostly there was an upward progression, with a few dips mostly in the Larry Drew era, and 1st season Coach Bud took over. In one season after coach Bud took over the coaching position, we went from 38 wins to 60 wins. Another impressive feat considering we did not have that "Mega-Star" like LeBron James.  Yes, the overall performance went down a bit after the 2014 season as we lost DeMarre Carroll and some players were getting over some injuries from the previous season, but they still kept it competitive.  So this brings us to today.  Yes we are in a slump and turnovers, allowed made 3 pointers, and lack of solid defense  is a big part of this downturn.  I am not sure if the team culture has been
You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. —Maya Angelou @dwighthoward #happysunday #bhm #shining #dwighthoward #atlantahawks #basketball #true2atlanta #begr8 #nba @dwighthoward
It's times like these that I wish we still had this guy, DeMarre Carroll, Tenacity, toughness, hard nose, in your face defense.  Really lives up to the Junkyard Dog moniker.  It's ok though. I support this team through the good times and the bad times.  I just hope that we can have some more good times soon.

Beard growing in nicely!! #riseup #true2atlanta let's get it Hawks!!! On the way to Orlando!!
The newest Hawk, Ersan Ilyasova.  9 pts, 2 reb, and 1 stl in his first outing as an Atlanta Hawk.  How much will Ersan be able to help. Will he surprise us? Can he stretch the floor and knock down some threes?  Only time will tell.  Decent first outing when you consider everyone in some aspect of the game was struggling last night.  Let's get behind this man and Stay True Atlanta!  #atl #atlantahawks #atlanta #hawks #hawksnation #atlhawks #staytrueatlanta #gohawks #ersanillyasova #hawksnation #atlhawksnation #illyasova #truetoatlanta #true2atlanta #true2atl #nba #nbabasketball
Mega Man was one of my favorite games growing up.  I always thought the select a boss stage screen was pretty cool.  Today I decided to mash up the select screen with some of our Atlanta Hawks.  The pictures are a bit pixelated because I wanted to give it that old NES/SNES look.  Hopefully, like Mega Man would, the Hawks can get some power-ups to bolster up that perimeter defense.

Hawks Nation: Atlanta had a decent trade deadline result, getting Illyasova for Tiago and some 2nd rounders, trading Mike Scott for some trade exception cash and a 2nd round pick, and signing Lamar Patterson and Ryan Kelly for the rest of the season.  In other Atlanta Hawks news, Dwight Howard had his Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy jersey retired today.  Dwight visited the school today where they had a ceremony to retire number 12 at SACA. Here is a little jersey mockup I made. (I know its not the same, but I tried my best with what I had)  Back to Hawks basketball tomorrow!

Atlanta, please welcome your newest Hawk, Ersan Illyasova.  The 8 year pro from Turkey was picked up last night in a trade to the Philadelphia 76ers for Tiago Splitter and a 2nd round pick (The teams will also swap 2nd round picks). Atlanta is looking to add some depth to the bench at the forward position and Illyasova is a great addition.  He can score and rebound, as well as stretch the floor with his length.  Fun Fact: Illyasova is the first Turkish player to play for the Hawks. The Hawks did draft Cenk Akyol in 2005, but he stayed in Turkey and never played in the NBA. (Funny enough his draft rights were traded back and forth between a few teams over the years and now they are back in the hands of the Hawks in exchange for Mo Williams player rights and cash considerations.) Will the Hawks continue to be "buyers" leading up to the 3 pm trade deadline?  We shall see.  The clock is ticking!
