After spending the summer closed while crews ripped out walls, applied fresh coats of paint, and added new concessions and entertainment options to the former Philips Arena, the newly rechristened State Farm Arena hosted its first Atlanta Hawks game against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday evening, showing a sold-out crowd of basketball fans (16,705 of them, to be precise) what the $192.5 million renovation has to offer.
This month, the Hawks begin their 50th season in Atlanta. Yes, we’re still waiting on an NBA championship, but the franchise’s record over that half-century is nothing to scoff at: 33 playoff seasons; four NBA Coaches of the Year; and a cadre of Hall of Fame legends. We celebrate with a photo essay featuring the work of Scott Cunningham, the team's official photographer of 41 years.
