I'm rather tired of this nostalgic stuff. The 80's is over. People need to let it go.

To be fair though, he didn't actually say about the old rivalry etc. Perhaps he just feels they are the best 2 teams right now?

I want the Hawks to beat the celtics for a few reasons, sick of the hype from the celtics, Bibby is right about the fans, KG is really cocky on the Celts, Hawks are young and fun to watch and Josh Smith is a beast.

after seeing Joe playing his heart out tonight, as well as the whole Hawk team, I want them to win.

It's who wants to win it more, and clearly it seems like its atlanta. I still have Boston, but who knows.

Boston doesn't appear the best team right now. They haven't won anything but a bunch of regular season games. Nobody on their team has won anything of importance when it comes to the playoffs. Right now they even look to be a gutless team.

Not being a fan of either you gotta pull for the underdog especially when its 1 vs. 8. Also Im a Kings fan so I gotta go with my main man Bibby...

It would definitely be exciting to watch the Celtics go down in a game 7 at home against the Hawks or maybe the Hawks could do it in 6 though that is extremely unlikely.

The thing about that though is...even though Golden State beat the Mavs last year, Dallas was still the better team. Dallas would most likely have taken Utah and the Spurs/Mavs series would have real exciting probably going 7 games and it could have gone either way.

Same is true here. If by some crazy turn of events the Hawks take out the Celtics, I cant really see them keep this up for another series much less 2 or 3.

But who knows, predictions are always wrong. What if Atlanta comes out playing lights out next game in Boston and then the home crowd carries them to a game 6 victory? And this new found confidence carries over into the next series? Though unlikely it will happen, for me and most other people hopefully it does.

I would love to watch Josh Smith play against LeBron in the second round. If anyone can give LeBron fits it would be Josh Smith.

i'm not a hawks fan but i HATE the Celtics, so i'd love Atlanta to win! Teams that try to cheat their way to a championship is just gay.

I want Atlanta to win. Just to see who Garnett will put the blame on this time with the Celtics. He won't be able to like in Minnesota. In Boston he has two more supertstars so it's not the rest of the teams fault this time, if it happens that they lose.
