Some NBA athletes are cool. They’re still do many things just the same as the rest of us non-professional athlete types. It’s always a good reminder that they’re people too. Sure, they’re on television, likely have more money than most of us and play a sport for a living that, for the rest of us, is simply recreational fun. Still, they’re people.

The Atlanta Hawks, expected by some experts to finish out of the playoffs coming into the 2014-15 NBA regular season, are doing well … very well.
