The basketball public is probably still a little skeptical as to how far this Hawks can team can go in the playoffs, but one thing is for sure, they are the champs (the CHAMPS) of postgame smack talk. And for this, we salute them.
First, we had Josh Smith with a little “In yo’ face!” comeuppance to an Orlando sportswriter and now comes word that Hawks VP of Public Relations Arthur Triche left a pair of tickets to last night’s Hawks-Bulls Game 1 for Magic guard Jameer Nelson, who famously told Derrick Rose a few weeks back that he’d “see you in the second round.” Um, or not.
Well played Mr. Triche. Well played.
