Wednesday in The Locker Room:
- New Hawks CEO Steve Koonin joined us on the heels of the team's Game 2 loss at Indiana and he told Crump and JP his goal is to re-create and cultivate Atlanta's passion for basketball.
- Steve also said he intends to clear up many of the misconceptions that exist about Philips Arena and downtown Atlanta.
- And Steve shared a story about his former colleague from his days with Turner, Craig Sager, who he wished well in his fight against leukemia.
- Crump and JP also wrapped up the Falcons introductory press conferences from their workouts yesterday and the guys were encouraged by the tone set by Mike Smith, who delivered the same forceful message he did in his phone interview with the guys last week.
