Details of Atlanta Hawks and the Ticket Luck value
Originally known as the Tri-City Blackhawks of the National Basketball League, the franchise was formed in 1946. They were among 17 teams when NBL and BAA merged resulting in the NBA in 1950. The team's name was shortened from Blackhawks to Hawks upon moving to Milwaukee. In 1955 the Hawks moved yet again, this time to St. Louis, Missouri after 4 last place seasons. Under coach Alex Hannum, Hawks captured their only NBA Championship in 1958. In 1967-68, owner Ben Kerner sold the team to Georgia real estate developer Thomas Cousins and former Georgia Governor Carl Sanders, who moved the team to Atlanta. Their logo consists of a Hawk with its wings spread perched on a basketball, with script. The Hawks' home turf is Philips Arena and in addition to the one championship win, the Hawks have four conference titles and fourteen division wins to their name. The team's schedule includes regular season which runs from November through April, with a number of preseason games scheduled in October.
In their 2nd season the Blackhawks went from the Eastern Division to the Western Division and showed significant improvement finishing in 2nd place with a 30-30 record. After becoming an NBA team, the Blackhawks reached the playoffs in the NBA's inaugural year. Led by coach Red Auerbach, the Blackhawks had a successful year. They beat the Denver Nuggets, who were also apart of the NBL 93-85. However, after losing their next 6 games Coach Roger Potter was fired and replaced by Arnold "Red" Auerbach. Under Auerbach the Blackhawks went on to finish with a 29-35 record finishing in 3rd place in the Western Division.
In 1955 the Hawks moved yet again, this time to St. Louis, Missouri. This period proved to be one of the Hawks' best. With acquisitions in the draft and free agency, the Hawks became the league's top teams. In 1957, the team advanced to the NBA Finals, losing to the Boston Celtics in a double-overtime thriller in game seven. While the team took in a conference title in 1957, they went on to snag their first championship win the following year. This proved to be the only championship title the Hawks have won till date. For the next ten years, the Hawks were one of the strongest teams in the entire league. In the years since then, Atlanta Hawks basketball has enjoyed their share of athletic talent. "Pistol" Pete Maravich - undoubtedly one of the greatest basketball players of all time - began his NBA career with the Atlanta Hawks. Another famous name that will forever be linked to Atlanta Hawks basketball is Ted Turner, who owned the sports team for 24 years.
In the later half of the 60s, the Hawks were certainly doing well on the court but things were not so rosy on the sidelines. The team's current home turf was in bad condition, not having any kind of proper maintenance since the forties. Management repeatedly approached the city for a new home stadium but their requests were denied. Frustrated with these developments, the team was finally sold to Atlanta in 1968 and was named Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks seemed to be in their prime and they had a great new stadium to play in. Since then Hawks has been Atlanta's favorite pro basketball team. After playing at Georgia Tech's Alexander Coliseum for 5 seasons the Hawks get a nest of their own in 1972 in a brand new 16,500-seat arena known as The Omni. The seventies saw a dip in performance as the Hawks concentrated on rebuilding their team. They made some smart choices. In 1977 Atlanta Braves owner Ted Turner bought the team and hired Hubie Brown to become head coach. In 1979 the Hawks team finished with 50 wins and won the Central Division. By the eighties, they were back in form as one the elite teams in the NBA. In 1982 the franchise acquired superstar Dominique Wilkins, and in the next four seasons the team had more than 50 victories each season. However the nineties were not so kind- despite playing well the team made the mistake of trading one of their star players Dominique Wilkins. They could not advance past the semifinals of the playoffs. In 1993, Lenny Wilkens was hired as coach. To help restructure the team the Hawks trade Kevin Willis to the Miami Heat for Steve Smith, Grant Long, and a future second-round draft selection. With a new look the Hawks would struggle at times posting a mediocre 42-40 record, while collecting the 7th seed. In the 1993- 1994 season coach Wilkens led the team to 57 victories, a team record, and in 1995 Wilkens broke the record (previously held by former Hawk coach Red Auerbach) for most victories by an NBA head coach with victory number 939. The Hawks improved their team and strengthened their defense by picking up free agent center Dikembe Mutombo, who captured the Defensive Player of the Year honors by finishing 2nd in the NBA in rebounding and blocked shots.
Hawks home arena of 25 years, The Omni, was demolished to make room for a new arena. However, while workers built the new arena the Hawks split their games between the Georgia Dome, and their original home in Atlanta, the Alexander Coliseum on the campus of Georgia Tech, which had been recently renamed McDonald's Center. The Hawks posted a solid 50-32 record as Dikembe Mutombo captured Defensive Player of the Year Honors again. The Hawks also made history as they set a single game regular season attendance record when 62,046 saw the Hawks take on Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. However, in the playoffs the Hawks were knocked off in the first round by the Charlotte Hornets in 4 games. The beginning of the 20s was also not very promising for the Atlanta Hawks. They went from bad to worse. In 2005 they won just 4 of their last 35 games on the way to finishing dead last with a franchise worst record of 13-69. that was the worst season for the team. To top it all, Center Jason Collier suffered a heart attack during the 2006 preseason and died suddenly at the age of 28.
