The Atlanta Hawks are the most underrated team in the NBA right now. While everyone, rightfully so, is talking about Miami and Chicago coming out of the East, Atlanta is quietly trucking along. The Hawks beat Miami at Miami and if they weren’t on the second night of a back to back they should’ve beat Chicago at Chicago. The Hawks are dangerous they are athletic at all 5 positions on the floor and that zone defense they play gave Miami and Chicago fits. If Tracy McGrady can come off the bench and contribute the way he did in the Miami game the Hawks will not be an easy out in the playoffs. If somehow this management could pull off a trade for the hometown kid Dwight Howard even if it is for the rest of the year, the Hawks in my opinion leap over the Bulls. Even if they keep this team the exact same Josh Smith and Al Horford are a hell of a match up for anytime, and Jeff Teague is quietly becoming a solid a point gaurd. Their athletic ability on both ends of the floor will cause teams problems. The Hawks may not be the sexy pick out of the East but you can not sleep on this team.
