Clearly, it’s been a rough year for our Hawks. Our 10 year playoff streak is almost certainly coming to an end, and the team resides at the very bottom of the league in terms of record. Needless to say, Atlanta is playing some pretty frustrating basketball.
You, however, were a bright spot in this dark season. Whether it was your textbook shooting form or your willingness to launch shots from anywhere on the floor at any given time, you made the Hawks at least somewhat entertaining to watch this season, and for that, we are all grateful.
You’ve had a long, successful NBA career, and you deserve to spend the last year(s) of it with a contender. While we will surely miss you here in Atlanta, we will all be rooting for you with your new team, the Philadelphia 76ers.
Best of luck in Philly, and once again, thank you for your time here in Atlanta.
