The Hawks is a professional basketball team which is based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Hawks biggest competitor is the National Basketball Association and they play their friendly matches at Philips Arena. They started as Tri-Cities Blackhawks in 1946 and later became members of the National Basketball Association in 1949. The team changed their name in 1951 to the Hawks. The team won championship in 1958 when they moved to St. Louis and later moved to Atlanta in 1968.
The team is believed to have experienced some changes when it included some talented players. It included Pete Maravich and Lou Hudson and this was a clear indication that the team was moving to the right direction. Ted Turner, who is the owner of Atlanta Braved, hired Hubie Brown to become the team’s head coach in 1977. In Deep South, the Hawks was the only recognized basketball team just as Atlanta Braves were the only major baseball team. Brown helped the Hawks win in 1978, a year after he was elected as the coach. The Hawks won the first division title in Central Division and Second in the city of Atlanta. In 1989, the Hawks broke the record by winning 50 games in each season.
In 1994, Coach Wilkins traded Kevin Willis and Miami Heat for Steve Smith and Grant Long. This made the Hawks have a massive win and Coach Wilkins broke the record with the victory number of 939. Around this time, the Hawks thought of changing their playing Arena. This was meant to last for decades, because the proposed Arena was supposed to be designed by weathering steel. On March 31st 2004, the team was sold to a group of executives by the name Atlanta Spirit LLC by Tim Warner. Today, the teams playing Arena is Philips Arena.
