Coming into the 2021 NBA season, not much was made of the young and inexperienced Atlanta Hawks. After signing Bogdan Bogdanovic, Rajon Rondo, and Danilo Gallinari, fans knew that the team was set to improve from their previous campaign.
But nobody expected them to still be hanging around in the second round. And now that they're finally developing that winning culture, fans are starting to really take notice.
"I've been going to this gas station for 4 years, dude didn't know who I was, didn't care, but now that we've won a couple playoff games, we start to see the energy. That's just the power of us winning games and sticking together."
It's hard to blame people for noticing what is going on with the Hawks. Trae Young and the crew have really put the world on notice with their play, which has reached its peak during the most important of times.
The franchise hasn't won a title since 1958, so the team and its fans are hungrier than ever to finally bring the Larry O'Brien home.
Trae Young is proving before our very eyes that he can be the guy to get them there, and the city of Atlanta can feel it.
