Hawks Extras – 5

Hagan again…same way…same result. Two points over Cincinnati Royal Tom Hawkins. AND…The Memphis Hawks, anyone?? This photo from January 1966 was taken at the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis, where as early as 1965 Hawk’s owner Ben Kerner was shopping the team around. The team played six “home” games in Memphis in ’66 to guage the interest of that southern city in NBA basketball, and specifically, OUR St. Louis Hawks!!
