The Atlanta Hawks will be looking for a more productive season from De’Andre Hunter in 2021-22. It is not that Hunter was not engaged when he hit the court, the problem was that he was injured for all but 23 games of the season.

Hunter was the Hawks’ second-best player early on in the season before he had to come off the floor with knee soreness against the Washington Wizards. He would have a non-surgical procedure on his knee which did not fix it which meant that he has surgery during the season to attempt to get the knee right.

Hunter would return for a few games prior to the season and then would play for the entire first-round playoff series against the New York Knicks. Unfortunately for Hunter and the Hawks he would have a second knee operation during the Eastern Conference semi-finals series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Atlanta Hawks have already seen that De’Andre Hunter wants to improve himself.

When COVID-19 shut down the league in mid-march, Hunter did not sit back and wait for it to restart. What he did was to work on his body by himself so that when he could come back and play basketball, he would be in better physical shape and this would improve his game.

Unfortunately due to the second knee operation, Hunter is not able to do the same thing this offseason. However, what he can do is study legends of the game and see how they did it so that he could add another aspect to his game.

Now, let’s take a look at the three legends De’Andre Hunter should study this offseason.
