The Hawks Have Just One Championship
In 1955 The Atlanta Hawks won their one and only championship. Back then, the team wasn’t even the Atlanta Hawks, they were based out of St. Louis. The Hawks did not move to Atlanta, Georgia until 1968. This season’s team looks like it could definitely make it to the championship game, if not win the whole thing! The 2014-15 Atlanta Hawks are on top of the league, and have already clinched a playoff spot.
The Hawks have almost a 50/50 split in franchise wins and losses
The Hawks currently have 2,591 wins and 2612 losses over the entire franchise. With all the success the Atlanta Hawks are having, hopefully they can turn things around and accumulate more wins than losses!
