The kang of the south, T.I., will be on hand to call tonight's game between the Atlanta Hawks and their division rival and current NBA champions, Miami Heat. The future is bright for the Atlanta Hawks and their fans. Why? No more Joe Johnson! Sorry Nets fans.
All jokes aside the franchise does look to be heading in a more promising direction now that they have the flexibility to sign players without the massive 20+ million a year contract looming over their heads, and it seems like fans and high profile artist like T.I. are starting to take notice.
The Grammy award-winning Atlanta rapper, author, actor, and reality star will call the first half of the contest for the SportsSouth channel. Although the Hawks will come into the game as the overwhelming underdog, maybe an appearance by the Kang will change the hometown team's fortune.
Now all Hawk fans have to do is learn how to cope with Josh Smith taking 18 foot jump shots. Good luck!
