| The Atlanta Hawks are one of the worst teams in the NBA. Except for a few seasons in the 1980s and 1990's, the team is usually at the bottom of the league's standing. The franchise was formed in 1946 as the Tri-Cities Blackhawks (named after Tri-City native Black Hawk) of the National Basketball League; it was based in the tri-city area between Moline, Illinois, Rock Island, Illinois, and Davenport, Iowa. Over the years, the team has moved to Atlanta and are now called the Atlanta Hawks. The current logo, shown on the left, depicts a hawk holding onto a basketball. |
Lets hope that the franchise has a few good seasons for the rest of the decade.
