Atlanta Hawks On Cover of SLAM (Finally)
Perfect timing for this cover!
The homie Lang Whitaker (who is also EIC) wrote this long-overdue Hawks cover story for SLAM Magazine. This is a great look, especially after that molly-whopping we gave the Lakers last night. I can't wait to run to the store and get like five of these joints. And they BETTER have them at the store too. Its a double cover with the Oklahoma City Thunder (Durant, Green and Westbrook) and you how know Atlanta likes to treat the Hawks in their own city. There's a Sprite/Lebron billboard walking distance from the arena for crying out loud.
But yeah, I can't wait to get this. This is the first time a Hawk has ever been on the cover of SLAM. That's right, no Smitty, no Mookie, no Mutumbo (Nique was in the twilight of his career or out of the NBA by the time SLAM really got going). So this is a long time coming for Hawks fans like myself, make sure ya'll go get one, ain't no telling when we'll see this again.
