The Atlanta Hawks have had its best season ever so far, poised to win 60 games and make a deep playoff run. But people insist on using the past playoff history to totally write the team off. Is that fair or is in just the facts? One era was Nique`s, couldn't get past Jordan, Bird, Pistons. The other era is more recent, a younger Al, different coaches, and despite having talented, still exited in either the first or second round for 7 years straight. What makes this year different? Call in and talk about
If anybody has seen that Dave Chappelle/Wayne Brady skit, you know what I'm talking about......Last night was the most horrid, blatant, misuse of power I have ever seen in a NBA Playoff game. If you are or are not an Atlanta Hawks fan, you know what the deal is now. If you didn't know before, you know it now. Yes, Hawks could have pulled a few more rebounds, yes Teague should have drove and tried to get some free throws, yes Mike Scott was wide open while Mack was given the ball again. On and on. The ejection of Al Horford gave Cleveland the game. There are several points to discuss on tonights show, my co-host Sandra Maddox and I will review many of them, feel free to join in! Tell your friends to call and speak their mind. And yes, the Hawks can win 4 in a row.
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.
Join me tonight for a special episode of The Dirty Word as we discuss the Eastern Conference Finals series between the Hawks and Cavs.
After a very controversial ejection of Al Horford, the Hawks are on the brink of elimination Tuesday night as the Cavs lead the series3-0. Despite being down in the series, many Hawks fans AND national pundits believe that dirty play and tactics have contributed to the Cavs success in this series.
We will talk about the Horford/Dellavadova incident and take a deep dive into the "gutsy" play of the Aussie point guard.
Is he crossing the line and when will Atlanta seek true retribution against he and the Cavs.
I will also give a step by step process on how the Hawks can defy all odds and win this series, even overcoming shady officiating.
Stay tuned tonight at 11:30 and keep it locked! Calls are welcome!

On the eve of the NBA Playoffs, the Hawks have been resting starters, getting injured players back, and doing a great job of reinstituting all the habits that put them on top of the Eastern Conference. But you still have doubters. You have people saying the Bulls will come back and win. Most everybody says the Cavs are the top seed. People say Golden State are a shoe in to win even tho the Spurs are still playing basketball. How do you feel? What reasons do you have that the Hawks are indeed the favorites to win it all? Call in, listen in, talk.
So what happened in Game 2 of the finals? What free agents can the Hawks get? What is taking so long for the Braves to change over the bullpen? How are the new Falcons looking so far? These are some of the topics we will discuss tonight including golf, Serena winning the French Open and others. be sure to listen in and join in!! Will make a few announcements regarding future shows, guests, co-hosts and more!!!!
The regular season doesn't matter. People keep saying that. Yet, you have several teams in the west and east that are battling for a playoff spot, every regular season game mattering. So what will it mean to the Hawks when they clinch the division and conference before April? What will the new injuries to the Hawks mean over the next 6 weeks?
There is still money on the table, still possible moves to be made, what's next? Where do Hawks stand in East with Love going to the Cavs and Rose looking healthy and Paul out for season with Indy? Falcons play this week, but Hageman is lost for 6-8 weeks. Can anything be done to limit injuries in pre-season?? Braves are, well, done. What can they do next year? Call in, speak your thoughts if you don't agree with what everybody else says.
No doubt, all Atlanta sports fans had a ball this past weekend. Seeing the Hawks go into Houston and win, after beating the Cavs and Chicago. Seeing the Atlanta Falcons buck up and win a game on the road, after everybody had been saying how its the Saints division to lose......So what about this week? Tonight the Hawks have their toughest test against a new look Mavs team, then the LA Clippers come to Atlanta. And then Sunday the Falcons are at home as the Panthers are trying to win the division for the second straight year. The pundants have definitely changed their tune, what about you? Do you believe the Hawks and Falcons have a chance to advance in playoffs this year? Will be talking about these and other recent happenings such as Boss winning player of the week honors and Josh Smith being waived by the Pistons
