Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our pre-2021-22 revision of our top 50 Atlanta Hawks
As for all of our top 50 players in basketball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NBA.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Please note, that this is our first revision in three years, and as such, there are two significant debuts, that would not be so drastic had we did these the last two years.
As always, we present our top five immediately, though nothing has changed in this upper-tier.
1. Bob Pettit
3. Cliff Hagan
4. John Drew
You can find the entire list here.
The two new entries are stars of the past few years, and led Atlanta to the Eastern Conference Finals.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
