We’ve been doing plenty of looking ahead here at Soaring Down South. There’s a little more than two months remaining until opening night, so naturally we are using this time to explore the various possibilities and scenarios that this season will bring.

There have been departures. There have been additions. There’s the lingering sense of dread that somehow last season was a fluke. Let’s take a break from all the speculation and take some time to reflect.

Last season was something special and it is a time that should be appreciated. The ending did not result in a championship, but isn’t the journey the most important part? The shared joy of watching a team come together and significantly outperform expectations is unlike anything else in sports. Especially when that success comes from an absolutely beautiful brand of basketball. If someone had told you in October 2014 that the Atlanta Hawks were going to make the Eastern Conference Finals you would’ve taken it no questions asked. Wouldn’t you have? I know I would have.

There are many moments that stand out, it was hard to narrow a season down to only five, but I’ve done just that. Jeff Teague drives to the basket, Kyle Korver dagger three-pointers, Al Horford returning in splendid fashion, Paul Millsap’s continued development, or even the exhilarating terror that is watching Dennis Schroder play basketball.

All of those little storylines make up the bigger picture, so I tried to paint with broad strokes to fully encapsulate the season. Disagree with my choices? What were your top five moments of the 2014-2015 season? Feel free to leave your selections in the comments section.
