Atlanta Hawks CEO Steve Koonin says "fo shizzle" with TI in a preseason video for fans, because that's not awkward or anything.
Atlanta has an unfortunate off-season with insensitive remarks from General Manager Danny Ferry, but I hope this won’t dissuade people from the team, which is subtly unconventional and the highest paid player, Horford, is only getting 12 million dollars a year.

The Atlanta Hawks quietly reached out to a select group of teams last season making Al Horford available, according to sources.
The Hawks were seeking "the right price - including an unprotected 2014 first round pick."
Horford was injured last season, but is healthy again and remains one of the NBA's most productive big men when healthy.
