Amazing. The Atlanta Hawks, with a season record of 37-45, play game 7 in the first round of NBA playoffs against the Boston Celtics (who had the best basketball record this season).
Was it the tornado that hit Atlanta a month ago? UGA won an improbable SEC championship following back to back wins in one day on the day following the tornado. Has something changed the spirit in the air for basketball in Atlanta?
Who knows? ESPN reported yesterday that the Hawks are the youngest team in the league. Ignorance is bliss-always good, they just don’t know that they should roll over and play dead. Whatever happens tomorrow in Boston (Atlanta hasn’t won in Boston this year) the Hawks are successful this year.
Keep that inspiration going guys and don’t forget: it’s not about the season record, it’s just the 60 minutes in that one game. Like any other game…
