The Atlanta Hawks’ DeAndre’ Bembry and Thabo Sefolosha were among the first NBA players to ever record using the Snapchat Spectacles on an NBA floor when they did so during pre-game warmups in two separate games last month.
In an effort “to do something special,” in Bembry’s words, the Hawks’ social media team asked them both to record themselves dunking and taking shots using the Spectacles for the club’s Instagram feed.
Sir Foster brings a heavy dose of hip-hop to Hawks games
Organist is a crowd pleaser in the ATL and beyond
...then there is Atlanta Hawks organist Sir Foster, who gets the crowd “turnt up” by playing trap music such as “Mask Off” by Future, “T-Shirt” by Migos, “Portland” by Drake and “Tunnel Vision” by Kodak Black.
Foster, bored with the normal organ music at sporting events, brought life to that world by playing hip-hop when the Hawks hired him in 2009.
“I don’t know what I would have done without this. I definitely owe a lot to the Hawks for taking a chance on me and allowing me to be myself.”
Any good press is welcome during these dark, troubling times.
