ATLANTA (CBS46) – Legendary sports presenter Steve Holman called one of the greatest games in Atlanta Hawks history on Sunday night.
âIt has been amazing, phenomenal, fun,â said Holman.
The high-flying Hawks upset the Philadelphia 76ers on the road in Game 7, sending Atlanta to the Eastern Conference Finals for just the second time in franchise history.
âOur bandwagon is wide open for everyone. We have a big bandwagon that is ready to take on anyone. I don’t care if you’ve never watched or listened to a Hawks game in your life, âsaid Holman.
Hawks hysteria continues to build, as fans continue to believe. Merchandise sales increased by more than 50% at the Fan’s Wear store in downtown Atlanta.
âThese are genuine Dominique Wilkins jerseys, and we got more because we used up what we had,â said Donnie McLemore, fan wear manager.
The Hawks will kick off the Eastern Conference Finals in Milwaukee against the Bucks on Wednesday night. According to Vivid Seats, tickets for the first game cost over $ 100. The second game at $ 150 and up and for the third game in Atlanta, the cheap seats cost a little over $ 250.
“I respect you, you respect, man,” Atlanta Hawks interim coach Nate McMillan told his team after the game.
If you’re planning on making the trip to Milwaukee to see Coach Nate McMillan and the team, a Delta round-trip flight will cost around $ 379 and a hotel room will cost at least $ 135 a night.
âIt’s not your father’s sports team. This is not a typical Atlanta sports team. So whatever’s been going on over the years you can kind of erase it with this team because they’re not fooled by anything! said Holman.
