About the Jersey
This jersey was worn in the early 1990’s by the Atlanta Hawks. During this period the Hawks continued to be a force in the NBA. However, the best run in the playoffs came in the 1993-1994 when the Hawks made the Eastern Conference Semi Finals but lost to the Indiana Pacers.
This was also the last jersey to be worn by Dominque Wilkins who was traded to the LA Clippers in February 1994.
Champion became the manufacturer of NBA jerseys following Sandknit going bankrupt. Champion signed a manufacturing deal for four years initially. However, Champion ended up manufacturing the NBA jerseys until 2001.
From 1997 Nike and Starter produced jerseys for a number of teams and therefore, Champion did not produce jerseys for all 27 NBA teams for the whole period.
The logo for the 1982-1986 Atlanta Hawks Home White jersey is as per above. This logo was in use from 1972- 1995.
