Hawks_Cavs

            After years of being the butt of people’s jokes both the Atlanta Hawks and the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the Eastern Conference Finals.

However, that would never be enough. Now with James back, Cleveland has a chance to return to the NBA Finals, after years of missing the Playoffs completely. Atlanta on the other hand has made the Playoffs every year since the 2007-08 season, but each year they failed to reach the Conference Finals. The Hawks haven’t been to a Conference Finals since the 1970’s. We’ll look at each team’s starting five and a few impressive bench players. Read more ›
