The Atlanta Hawks are part of the East Conference of the NBA and play in the Southeast Division. At the time of their creation, the team played in the National Basketball League. However after the merger with the Basketball Association of America in 1951, the Hawks were admitted into what then came to be called the NBA.
On the Move
After joining the NBA in 1951, the franchise was shifted to Milwaukee. After four years, the Hawks relocated to St. Louis where they remained for a decade and a half until finally settling in Atlanta in 1968.
The Long Drought
The Hawks won their only championship to date in St. Louis in 1958. As things stand, the Hawks currently own the unenvious record of having the second longest drought of any franchise in the NBA.
One reason for this unwanted trend that is quoted mostly by Hawk fans is the club’s poor record in getting draft picks. Throughout their history, the Atlanta Hawks have only managed four players who have gone on to be elected in the All-Star Game, a sign of standout performers in the league. However, this year fans are hopeful that the current lineup led by Kyle Korver and Jeff Teague has what it takes to go all the way. A famous win over a Kobe Bryant led Lakers team will be just the tonic the Hawks need right now to start believing in themselves again.
