Just two seasons ago, the Atlanta Hawks surprised just about everyone when they entered the NBA playoffs.
The Hawks were a big surprise to many, in addition to their fans, who long believed their team had what it took to go far.
Then last season they had a much harder time and struggled to make the playoffs.
But some big changes were made in the summer and now the team’s lead player, Trae Young, thinks big things are ahead.
“We believe we can win a championship. I know I do.”

“We think we can win a championship,” Young said at a news conference for his team.
“I know I do,” he added.
Young has always had great confidence in his team, but now many more NBA fans believe in the Hawks as well.
Falcons flying high
Atlanta was part of one of the biggest acquisitions of the summer when they acquired Dejounte Murray from the San Antonio Spurs.
While he alone won’t completely change the fate of the team, Murray is a big problem for the Hawks.
Playing alongside Young and John Collins, Murray could greatly improve the team’s offense. Y defense to the next level.
He fills in a lot of the voids the Hawks have — he just needs to stay healthy and play to his potential.
As for Young, he needs to keep playing at MVP-caliber levels and become even more of a team leader in the coming months.
Young is a great player, but he has his own pain points that need to be addressed and there is no better time to do so than now, with a revamped roster ready to take on the East.
In just a few months, we will know if Young’s confidence in his team is founded or not.
