My Favorite Basketball Team
The Atlanta Hawks are my favorite basketball team and they have a tough match up in the Garden tonight. If you haven’t heard by now, Boston is the center of the universe right now in the sports world. They have one of the best NFL teams ever in the New England Patriots, who just knocked off the defending Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts. You pair this with the World Series Champ Boston Red Sox and this would give any city or state reason to celebrate. It only gets better when you factor in the Boston College Eagles football team that is tops in the ACC this year and you have pandemonium! But wait, there’s more…
You had a struggling basketball team last year in the Boston Celtics and they had high hopes for landing one of the top two picks in the NBA Draft this year and managed to fall to number 5. It left the Celtics out in the cold, until they made their off-season moves. They managed to get Ray Allen from the Sonics and brought in one of the top players from the NBA in Kevin Garnett. Now they are referred to as the Big 3 in Boston or the PGA Tour. It’s going to feel like a tour in the PGA, when other teams have to go into this hostile environment in the Boston Garden. The PGA (Pierce, Garnett, and Allen) Tour is going to be a ticket that everyone living near Boston is going to want to purchase. The Big Ticket (Kevin Garnett) is now on a team that is considered a “big ticket” to have in the area.
However, flying under the radar is my Atlanta Hawks. They are perfect against the East and West teams this year in the NBA. They can’t lose to the West and haven’t figured out; how to beat a team from the East yet. The East games have been on the road, while the Western Conference teams have played at Phillips Arena. So the Hawks are perfect on home and the road too! It’s not the perfect you won’t on the road or with the teams from the East, but now the Hawks have to face one of the toughest teams in the East so far this year.
The Denver Nuggets were a joke against the Celtics and many feel the Nuggets are a lot better team than the Atlanta Hawks are. I don’t think many people realize just how young and athletic these Hawks from Hotlanta are. While Boston might sport the big 3 in tonight’s game, we feel we have 8 to 10 guys that could compete for starting jobs on other NBA teams. It’s this depth that is going to be a huge factor for the Hawks tonight. Don’t look for the Celtics to run over the Atlanta Hawks, because the Hawks can beat you in more ways than just 3! This should be a good win for the Hawks tonight and will open up the eyes of the NBA community, when the Hawks become the first team to give Boston a tally in the loss column this year. ESPN has elected to not show any Hawks games this year and this might be one of the biggest mistakes a sports marketing agency has ever made. The Atlanta Hawks are for real!Click here for reuse options!
