Normally this would be a time for excitement, but given the circumstances this year it doesn't have quite the same zeal. Nevertheless, the Atlanta Hawks released their preseason schedule for the upcoming 2011-12 season and for the time being lets just hope that a miracle happens and they actually play these games.

Obviously the first thing that jumps out at you is a West coast trip in the preseason. One positive to this is that you know anything involving the Lakers will be heavily advertised and with new Hawks ownership in place that will be important as they attempt to change the image of this team. Now if only we could take care of this lockout ..........
