Remember when Jameer Nelson told Derrick Rose he’d see him in the second round? No? See here. Yup, he said it and the Atlanta Hawks didn’t forget it. Just like Atlanta showing they were the Hawks and not birdbrains, the team has been taking names of those who have underestimated them.
Tonight, when they face off against the Bulls to kick off the second round of the playoffs, there will be a pair of playoff tickets waiting at will call for Nelson. Hawks PR superman, Arthur Triche tweeted the above snapshot of the tickets along with this tweet:
They might drive you crazy on the basketball court, but those Atlanta Hawks sure are jokers. And thanks to that famous Southern hospitality, Nelson’s words to Rose won’t be in vain — he will catch Derrick Rose in the second round. Probably not what he meant, but still.
