LOL

Watching this supercut of highlights, you'd think Josh Smith was the greatest living Atlanta Hawk -- and not a mercurial blockhead who was run out of every NBA town and completely out of the NBA by age 30.

This seemed an obvious choice:

Every NBA Team's Signature Moment of the Decade

Atlanta Hawks: Starting 5 Wins Eastern Conference Player of the Month

Image

Defining the Atlanta Hawks' decade begins and ends with the 2014-15 squad. They rattled off 60 victories en route to clinching the Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed one year after tallying just 38 wins and put some real distance between themselves and the mediocrity in which the organization was continually mired.

Getting swept in the Eastern Conference Finals by LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers put a minor damper on what remains, by record, the best season in franchise history. It didn't help that the Hawks barely made it to said series in the first place. Both the Brooklyn Nets and Washington Wizards, who were missing John Wall for half of the semifinals, pushed them to six games.

Big whoop. That Hawks squad was still a singularity, the rare regular-season powerhouse the league didn't see coming. Their signature moment is only tough to pin down because it's really a collection of them rolled into one.

"If we're allowed to consider an entire month a signature moment, it has to be the Atlanta Hawks' perfect January during the 2014-15 season, which led to a franchise-record 60-win season and featured the Eastern Conference's eventual No. 1 seed rattling off 19 consecutive victories (17 in January)," Bleacher Report's Adam Fromal wrote. "The starting lineup, comprised of DeMarre Carroll, Al Horford, Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague, didn't feature superstar-caliber play from any individual, but the collective unit was named co-Eastern Conference Players of the Month in an unprecedented decision; previously, that accolade had only been shared by multiple players when the voting resulted in a tie."

Nothing was more 2014-15 Hawks than splitting an award meant for one player among five. They were the zenith of star-less basketball at the time, just as much as the reigning champion San Antonio Spurs. They ranked first in assist percentage and fifth in passes per game, and although they sent four players to the All-Star Game, not one landed a starting nod.

As for alternative selections, Atlanta doesn't have many.
Kyle Korver's dunk against the Indiana Pacers and a win over the 39-8 Golden State Warriors that same season stand out, as Fromal put it, "on a more granular level." Hiring Mike Budenholzer as head coach in 2013 and advancing to the 2015 Eastern Conference Finals are up there, too.

More recently, the Hawks have the Trae Young trade—or rather, the decision to not keep Luka Doncic. Certain diehards will paint that as a mutual victory for Atlanta and the Dallas Mavericks, but unless Cam Reddish turns into a fringe star or better, that move will go down as one of the great what-if moments in league history.
