Rejoice fellow Atlanta Hawks fans! The NBA is officially back on Monday as the Hawks hold their annual media day at Philips Arena. This will be our first in person look at the new uniforms, the new players and Peachtree Hoops will be front and center for all of the action.
The event is scheduled from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. and portions will be live streamed via Hawks.com. I will be on the scene and sending out updates via the Peachtree Hoops Twitter account so be sure and give that a follow. Once the event is over, stay tuned to the site as we will begin recapping the top stories of the day.
11:13 a.m. Update - Hawks announce plans to erect a statue in honor of Dominique Wilkins as part of the 15th anniversary of Philips Arena. The team also announced that Wilkins has signed a new long term deal and has a new title as Special Advisor to CEO Steve Koonin.
