A little bit of Hawks history
The team was founded in 1946, they were then known as Buffalo Bisons. However, they joined the NBA only in 1949.
The Buffalo Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo, New York, was their home turf. With only 13 games into the inaugural season, the Bisons were moved to Moline, Illinois, then a part of the "Tri Cities". They came to be known here as the Tri-Cities Blackhawks after the Black Hawk War which was fought in Illinois. As a result, the Tri-Cities Blackhawks became one of the original teams of the NBA.
After a minor setback, the team was relocated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1951. There they came to be known as the Milwaukee Hawks. In 1955, they relocated again to St. Louis Missouri with a new team name - the St. Louis Hawks. They had a comparatively longer stint as the St. Louis Hawks even winning the NBA Championship in the year 1958. The Hawks continued to play at the St. Louis Arena until 1968.
In 1968, however, the team was sold to Tom Cousins, an Atlanta based real estate developer and Carl Sanders, the former Georgia Governor. It was then that they finally became the Atlanta Hawks, making Atlanta, Georgia their home.
As Atlanta Hawks, they played in a number of home arenas. When they began, they played from the Alexander Memorial Coliseum. From 1972 to 1997, it was the Omni Coliseum. For two years after that, they played at the Georgia Dome following the demolition of the Omni. The new Philips Arena became their home arena in 1999 and they have been playing there ever since.
The Hawks, throughout their franchise history, have contributed a fair share of players to the Hall of Fame - Walt Bellamy, Moses Malone, Pete Maravich and Bob Pettit among others.
