The Atlanta Hawks have had a number of great players in their history. Many All-Stars and even Hall of Famers, let’s take a look at the top five Hawks ever.

With the current NBA season currently on pause, there’s never been a better time to take a look back at some of the greatest players in NBA history, specifically, some of the greatest Atlanta Hawks in NBA history. The Hawks have had a lot of great players both in Atlanta and during the teams time in St. Louis so I’m going to break this up into the All-Hawks teams.

Today, we’ll be looking at the All-Hawks first-team and over the next couple weeks, we’ll take a look at the All-Hawks second and third-teams. But as I mentioned, today we’re starting with the heavy hitters. I’ll be honest, due to the great history of talented players in the Hawks organization there won’t be very many current or even recent players, however, they will all be great players.

Considering that the Hawks have only had one NBA championship in franchise history, which took place all the way back in 1958, some of the greatest Hawks players haven’t played a game in over 40 years. Now with that being said, even though the Hawks havent won a championship since 1958, doesnt mean they havent had good teams or good players since then. We all know some of the awesome Hawks teams that took place in the ’90s, 2000s and 2010s and all of those teams will be represented, it just may not be in the All-Hawks first-team.

With that being said, let’s get started with the All-Hawks first-team guards.
