Catch the magic.The Atlanta Hawks wrap up the 2016 preseason in an interesting way on Thursday evening, as Mike Budenholzer and company travel to Omaha to take on the Chicago Bulls. While Omaha may seem like a strange place for an NBA game, the contest will take place at Creighton University, which happens to be where both Kyle Korver and Chicago’s Doug McDermott played college basketball.
At any rate, Atlanta is expected to deploy a regular rotatio

- ATLANTA (AP)There was a buzz in the Hawks' locker room after their long-awaited first look at their new starting five together.Clearly, Atlanta's new big man has generated big expectations for the season.The Hawks' final home preseason game on Tuesday night provided the first chance for forward Paul Milsap, who has made three straight All-Star teams, to play beside center Dwight Howard, an eight-time All-Star and three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year.Milsap was brought along slowly followi
- USA Today doesn’t use formulas for their projections, and that is just fine with us. USA Today released their projections for the 2016-17 NBA regular season with the Atlanta Hawks projected as the Southeast Division champion. USA Today projects 48 wins for Atlanta and seems quite confident in their selection saying:
Yes the Atlanta Hawks are depending on Dwight Howard to revert back to his younger days — a return to Superman, if you will. But this is an unselfish team that has good b

- A quest to figure out what shoes the Hawks are wearing this season. Over the last two weeks, I have been on a search to figure out what shoes each Atlanta Hawks player is wearing this season.This wasn’t an easy mission, due to the fact that most pictures of ballers weren’t taken to specifically showcase the player’s sneakers. All of the Hawks currently fall into four brands; Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, and Peak.The players, and what shoes they wear are listed below.

- Dwight may be fouling an awful lot this preseason, but the past shows this trend probably (hopefully) won’t translate to the regular season. Yes, NBA fans care about the preseason about as much as UPN’s latest comedy–surprise, you didn’t even remember UPN was shut down ten years ago–but the games can be somewhat beneficial helping install new players and/or systems against opponents.As the preseason comes to a close in a few days (pause for celebration), Dwight Howa

- There are some times when NBA players hit the jackpot and find the rare nexus where talent, opportunity, and circumstance all intersect. You can have all the talent in the Western Hemisphere, but with no opportunity and poor circumstantial luck, you’re basically rookie-year D’Angelo Russell: imprisoned in a cell built entirely out of parting Kobe Bryant bricks and guarded by Byron Scott’s folded arms.
With ample opportunity but questionable talent and equally questionable circu

- The Hawks’ defense was elite last season, and should still be well above average. But can the offense keep up? When the Atlanta Hawks turned their collective focus to becoming a brutally powerful defensive unit last year, the rest of the NBA noticed. That defensive strength wasn’t enough to hold off the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it was enough for 48 wins and a strong first-round performance against the Boston Celtics.Despite fielding an elite defensive unit, the Hawks consistently str
