Atlanta Hawks


The Atlanta Hawks are a professional basketball team based in Atlanta. The Hawks compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member team of the league’s Eastern Conference Southeast Division. The team plays its home games at Philips Arena.


The team’s origins can be traced to the establishment of the Tri-Cities Blackhawks in 1946 in Moline, Illinois, a member of the National Basketball League (NBL) and owned by Ben Kerner & Leo Ferris. In 1949, they joined the NBA as part of the merger between the NBL and the Basketball Association of America (BAA) and had Red Auerbach as coach briefly. In 1951, Kerner moved the team to Milwaukee, where they changed their name to the Hawks. Kerner and the team moved again in 1955 to St. Louis, where they won their only NBA championship in 1958 and qualified to play in the NBA Finals in 1957, 1960, and 1961. The Hawks played the Boston Celtics in all four of their trips to the NBA Finals. The St. Louis Hawks moved to Atlanta in 1968, when Kerner sold the franchise to Thomas Cousins and former Georgia Governor Carl Sanders.


Atlanta Hawks MLK

Atlanta Hawks honor Martin Luther King Jr. with special Atlanta Hawks MLK jerseys.



The Atlanta Hawks have released their Atlanta Hawks MLK city edition jersey which celebrates the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr., who was born and raised in Atlanta.


The Hawks played their first game in the jersey on MLK day, Jan. 18, and will wear the Atlanta Hawks MLK jersey throughout the entire season.


The initials of King are shown on the front of the jersey and his signature is on the bottom left of the jersey. The black, gold and white colorway represents King’s determination and is also a nod to the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity which is the first Black Greek letter organization that King was a part of. The stars alongside on the side of the shorts represent the 22 times King was arrested for fighting for social justice and equality.


“There’s nothing better that we can do to represent the city of Atlanta than rolling out some jerseys that represent Dr. King and the legacy of Dr. King,” said Lloyd Pierce, Atlanta Hawks head coach.


The significance of the Atlanta Hawks MLK jersey is being recognized by student athletes at GHC as well.


“During a time like this, the significance means everything. The jersey shows how much power our athletes really have. They are playing for something bigger, and to be able to put MLK on the front of their jerseys and perform for our country says levels. [The Atlanta Hawks] are letting it be known that they will continue to fight for the things our ancestors fought for,” said Chargers guard, Cahiem Brown.


The Hawks’hardwood court will also be customized to represent the themes of the King jersey. The Hawks’logo in the center of the court will be customized to look like a mosaic pattern of a stained glass motif that would be found in a church.


The Hawks players are proud to represent the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and some players feel as though the jersey gives them an advantage while playing.


“I feel like, for me, it just gives a little bit of an edge. A little bit more of a chip to play harder and prove to the city of Atlanta that we’ve earned these letters,” said Hawks forward, John Collins.
