One of the best things about basketball is that it is not baseball. I enjoy both sports equally, but basketball has always had an edge in the not-employing-humorless-dickwads department, which means you rarely ever see NBA players or coaches talking about “class” or “playing the right way.” The Atlanta Hawks are…
In their overtime loss to the Celtics last night, just about every member of the Atlanta Hawks besides Paul Millsap played like dogshit. One of the chief offenders was point guard Jeff Teague, who shot a dismal 4-18, and had just five assists to three turnovers. He missed almost every shot as the game seesawed, and…
That ugly-ass Hawks-Celtics game was only made less painful to watch by an unfortunate pratfall from Atlanta’s mascot, who will not be fertilizing eggs anytime soon. Keep an eye on Harry’s tightrope routine at the bottom of the screen:
The Hawks just took a 2-0 lead in their first round series with the Boston Celtics after a prehistoric, listless game. Avery Bradley didn’t play because of a hamstring injury, Kelly Olynynk missed the game with a shoulder problem, and the Hawks’ coolest player, Dennis Schröder, turned his ankle at the end of the game.
The Atlanta Hawks were held scoreless for the last five minutes and change of the first quarter of tonight’s playoff game against Boston, but that doesn’t matter because the shamrock boys just took a world historic shit and scored only seven points over the entire first period on 3-for-23 shooting. That’s the fewest…
The Hawks beat the Pistons last night, and Jeff Teague scored 12 points in the victory. This apparently wasn’t enough to get him his spot on the team bus, as they left without him and he had to call his sister to come and pick him up. At least he had a pizza?
TNT has added a talent show to its NBA All-Star Weekend coverage, and the Atlanta Hawks’ entry came from Mike Muscala, who demonstrated his “skills” on the mic. It was less than impressive.
The Orlando Magic downed the Atlanta Hawks at home today thanks to this wild turnaround buzzer-beater from Nikola Vucevic. This is eerily similar to a game Vucevic hit back in November against the Lakers. Maybe the Magic should make their whole offense out of Nik Vucevic turnaround jumpers?
The Suns beat the Hawks yesterday, but only after the two teams decided to take a break from basketball to just kind of run around like a bunch of puppies in the snow.
The Atlanta Hawks have a slim lead in the first half over Milwaukee, but a huge advantage in face after Paul Millsap annihilated John Henson’s spirit with a devastating slam. Get well soon, John.
Atlanta Hawks guard Dennis Schröder was down a veneer after he ran into the knee of the Trail Blazers’ Meyers Leonard in Monday night’s game. Schröder made sure that he didn’t misplace the departed piece of his tooth by putting it in his sock.
The Hawks retired Dikembe Mutombo’s number last night, and kicked off the festivities with this court projection. One day I’ll get tired of these. Today is not that day.
It had been a long and frustrating sequence for Jeff Teague. He’d had his shot blocked twice by terrifying rubber giant Karl-Anthony Towns. The refs had missed a possible eight-second violation on the Timberwolves. Andrew Wiggins hit a crazy and-one. A tie game had become a six-point deficit with a little over a…
Atlanta Hawks wingman Thabo Sefolosha made news on April 18 when he was arrested along with his teammate Pero Antic at 1 Oak, a nightclub in New York, and charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and obstruction of governmental administration.
NBA player Thabo Sefolosha, who had his leg broken during a scuffle with NYPD officers in April, was found not guilty on charges of resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and obstruction of governmental administration.
Thabo Sefolosha testified today that he was trying to give money to a beggar and then leave in a car service when he was arrested outside of a New York City nightclub in April. That is when, according to Sefolosha, a police officer who had been unnecessarily belligerent and confrontational to him shortly before, and…
Brian Windhorst and Kevin Arnovitz dropped a big behind-the-scenes piece on the racism mess that led to the Atlanta Hawks being sold to Antony Ressler for $850 million. There are a number of funny anecdotes and interesting stories in the report, but the basic takeaway is that the Atlanta Hawks ownership group was…
DeMarre Carroll has joined Pero Antic as the second former Atlanta Hawk to elect to play on foreign soil for the upcoming season.
