Okay, now I see what’s happening

It’s hard not to think that these two things are related:
1)Hawks continue to win, making it 4 of 5 and three in a row at Phillips for the first time since April 2003;
and 2)Atlanta may get a White Christmas – the last time we had one was 1993 and I seem to remember one in the mid-to-late 80s, but I was young then and, you know, kids remember some silly things sometimes.

Here’s the interesting thing – 1993 was the last time the city had snow on Dec 25. 1993-94 was also the season that Lenny Wilkens coached the Hawks to the division title… see? Am I the only one getting the whole destiny vibe here?

    Joe Johnson is quietly having a monster season.

    He was always an after-thought on the Suns last year, despite scoring 17ppg and being the team’s only ball-handler when Nash sat, but he’s turning into the team leader for the young Hawks. He’s was the NBA’s Eastern Player of the Week last week, after scoring 18/9/6 on the Cavs, 17/6/8 on the 76ers, 36 on the Knicks and 30/5/9 on the Nuggets.

    No wonder the Hawks are winning with that kind of output!

    Hope springs eternal (for both a winning season and a white Christmas).

    Go Hawks!

    2 of the 4 signs of the apocalypse.

    BTW, Atlanta still has a basketball team?

    Uh oh… I got preggers with my eldest son during that winter storm whilst Lenny Wilkins was coaching. I’ll be right back I need to take a pill.

    I just want them to RISE UP on the court, after all everyday is OPENING DAY, right?

    The Hawks deserve a win every now and then. I hope we don’t get snow or ice for Christmas.
