They hopped on board the first Bandwagon Airlines flight from MIA to CLE.

Congrats to the Hawks on having a great season. I'm pretty proud of my Warriors and I think the game between us and you on Feb 6th is going to be awesome. Could be a preview to the finals!

The press tends to be late to the party. That's just how they roll. They were kinda that way when the Falcons did well a few seasons ago.

The Hawks are for real! Why, you say?... They're deep, they pass, they play defense. A TEAM.
Best Hawks team I've seen since Neek, Doc, Spud, Willis, and Plastic-man played together. This team won't go down easily. Again, they are for real!

UMMMM IHATECHRISTMAS im not too sure about that one man. As much as I dislike celebrity worship, what do you mean by superstar mentality?? just curious

Yes, they're a very well-balanced team.

The Timberwolves coach paid them a big compliment after Sunday's game when he said this:

"Until you are there and you play against it, you don't really understand," Saunders said. "It took us almost a half to understand how good they really were. They're the best combination offensive and defensive team we've played. The second half we went out, we competed. That's all I can ask."
