Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

We are counting down the days until the Hawks’ season-opener in Dallas by giving you 50 things to be excited about this year. With 16 days left, today’s reason is…


I was out in Athens with the Hawks for part of training camp, and on the first day, they were running a scrimmage drill. Al Horford got a rebound on the defensive end, streaked downcourt, took off a step or so inside the free throw line, and BAM. Dropped. The. Hammer. It was thunderous, and the impact reverberated throughout the gym.

It was the kind of dunk that makes you recoil in your seat, that makes you turn to the people in your immediate proximity, even if they are strangers, to share in the “Holy crap, did you just see that?” moment.

The awesome thing about dunks is you never know when they are going to happen, but we certainly do know that they WILL happen. And with guys like Al, Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap, and more, we’re likely to see our fair share at Philips Arena.

To whet your appetite (and just ’cause), here are our favorites from last season:

Yet perhaps you may a bit more in the way of content consequently men and women could connect with this far better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having A couple of images. Maybe you can place it out better?

    Dreaming of increasing vertical leap only can’t do the job. You really need to give your dedication and love what you really want to complete, that’s the big key. I admit that I did it like I’m only playing and making many excuses, till I recognized that I’m not acquiring that development that I want to accomplish because I don’t care on what I’m working on. Do all the basketball workout that you really need to perform in able acquire your highest vertical jump. Ignore all your reasons and power kick you lazy ass and do all of your workout no matter what it takes.
