Over the past 3 years the Atlanta Hawks have undergone a major transformation. Money and production didn't translate with Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams, so they were removed from team. Josh Smith was not traded, his contract ran out and he signed with another team, which also couldn't trade him and they waived him, in which he signed with another team that right now are borderline wanting to cut him. Drafting of players has improved tremendously. In 2013 the Hawks hired a new coach, a pupil of Popovich in San Antonio. Despite losing their top player and many others for a total of 180 games to injuries, Hawks made the playoffs for the 7th straight year and almost beat the then number one seed Indiana Pacers. So far this year, the Hawks are leaders in the Eastern Conference and Southeast Division. They have the best winning percentage against teams over .500 in the NBA. They have one of the best offenses and defenses in the NBA. They have one of the best home and road records in the NBA. Yet, people still do not want to count them as a "legitimate" team, despite beating (handling) other so called legit teams. Why is this?
That will be main topic tonight, feel free to chime in.
