About the Atlanta Hawks
Atlanta Hawks Tickets
Atlanta loves basketball. Though they might not have a dozen NBA Finals under their belt, the Atlanta Hawks are the city’s hometown pride.
Sure, it’s not always easy being a Hawks fan – considering the franchise has the second-longest drought in the NBA when it comes to going without having a championship season. But just because the Atlanta Hawks haven’t gone home with the gold doesn’t mean they’re not solid contenders – in fact, they’re one of only four NBA teams to qualify for the playoffs for ten seasons in a row in the 21st century. There’s greatness there, and the Hawks are ready to pounce.
A Long, Convoluted Team History
The Hawks have been an Atlanta staple for more than 50 years, but their history goes back far before 1968. Before their move to ATL, they were the St. Louis Hawks, where they won their only NBA Championship in 1958. They also had a history of making it to the finals several times in the late 50’s and early 60’s. This team was no slouch!
But wait! Their history goes even deeper yet. The Hawks had only settled in St. Louis, Missouri in 1955; before that, they were the Milwaukee Hawks from 1951 to 1955. And before even that, they were in Moline, Illinois, and known as the Tri-Cities Blackhawks from 1946 to 1951. And prior to that (for a total of 36 days in 1946), they were the Buffalo Bisons. Yep - it’s true: today’s Atlanta Hawks got their start as a New York team.
Watering the Drought
For those who are keeping track, the last NBA Finals the Hawks won was in 1958, well before they moved to Atlanta. That’s almost as bad as the Sacramento Kings. But unlike the Kings, the Hawks have been one hell of a team, being thwarted – sometimes unexpectedly – from NBA Finals greatness.
In fact, from 2007 to 2017, the Hawks showed up in the playoffs, never missing one. Long-held rivalries with the Celtics and the Pacers saw some hot games during the postseason during these years, skyrocketing the price of Hawks tickets in the only way success can. In the end, the Finals remained just out of reach, but not for lack of trying – and not because the Hawks had a shortage of talent, skill, or drive.
Driving Forward to Greatness
While that ten-year streak came to an end in 2018 with an abysmal 15th place finish, we can’t count the Atlanta Hawks out just yet. With a little rebuilding, the Atlanta powerhouse will be good as new and aiming for the Finals yet again. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon the Hawks will end their drought.
