    Does Memphis or New Orleans make their way out of the west and into the east?

    New Orleans seems to be further east so this may benefit them if new ownership decides to relocate the Hawks to say, idk, Seattle?

    Would ATL not stay in ATL?

    I'd like to see the Hawks stay in Atlanta. It's never fun for a city to lose their team.

    I would doubt it. Hasn't there attendance suffered for a while now?

    According to ESPN http://espn.go.com/nba/attendance

    They are 24th in the league in attendance and that is with them having the 4th best record in the league.

    Are you ready for the urbanization of the Hawks?

    You know the Bucks sold for $550m less than a year ago, and Atlanta is a much bigger city.

    Move those boys to Seattle. They'll be called... the Seattle Hawks. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

    If the Hawks move to Seattle, then one of those two moves to the EC and OKC slides from the Northwest Division to the Southwest Division. That'll make the Southwest OKC, Dallas, SA, Houston & Memphis/NO. :eek:
