Hawks

Posted: May 6, 2008 in Sports

I had the pleasure of going to Game 6 of the Hawks vs. Celtics series on Friday night at Philipps Arena, and it was incredible.  I have never been to a game that intense.  The Hawks pulled it out too, to force an improbable Game 7 against the team everyone had picked to win the NBA championship.  It’s been a long time since the Hawks were any good and since people actually came to see them play.  I also was able to spend some time with a friend of mine who grew up with me in the Buena – Clay – and my father-in-law and a couple of friends from around the ATL – Danny, Eniola and P.J.  It was truly a great night.  Makes me want to go to some games next year.  

I think they may actually win some games next year too.  Three starters are 22 or under – Al Horford, Josh Smith and Marvin Williams – and their star player – Joe Johnson is in his late 20s.  The Hawks are back. . . .maybe.  Josh Smith and Josh Childress, two of their key players are going to be restricted free agents this coming year.  That means other teams can make them a contract offer and the Hawks gotta match that offer to keep them.  After this series, a lot of teams will be interested in those guys.  So, J-Smooth and J-Chill, if you are reading this, and i know you guys read my blog – please stay.  Take less money if you have to, but stay. There, that was easy.
