The Atlanta Hawks overperformed in the 2021 NBA playoffs. The number five seed in the Eastern Conference went all the way to the Conference Finals.

Head coach Nate McMillan deserved lots of praise words from his fans and other persons involved. According to John Collins, he should come back next year to coach the Hawks or it would be a major shock.

“I would expect it to be a major shock if we didn’t see Nate back as coach of the Atlanta Hawks next year. I would definitely be extremely surprised,” Collins said, per Michael Scotto.
