  • The Hawks have more than just a dynamic duo

    To say the Atlanta Hawks are back to 2021 Eastern Conference Finals form would be a stretch, but it wouldn’t be that elastic if you catch the Hawks’ drift.  Ever since that magical playoff run that began in Madison Square Garden, the Hawks have been disappointing. To be fair, they surpassed what the team and fans expected out of them. To be honest, that team did what most thought they needed a couple more years [...]

  • Why are the Falcons so slept on?

  • Where Does Georgia State Stand In The Sun Belt?

    Odds are Georgia State Basketball wins the Sun Belt Conference again. On another hand, the Panthers may lose the Sun Belt Conference. It’s also unlikely the world ends tomorrow, so it’s better to go with the former rather than the latter in this situation.  Last year’s basketball season was weird, to say the least. It was abnormal and didn’t flow like any other season in Georgia State history has. COVID-19 was still raging in cases [...]
