To me, Atlanta is best known for three things besides Hawks basketball:

  1. Being the home of Coca-Cola's and CNN's headquarters
  2. Hosting the 1996 Olympics
  3. Being a major music hub of all genres, but especially R&B and hip hop. Usher, Ludacris, T.I., and India Arie are just a few of the many singers who are from ATL.

Even though I'm playing a song from a guy who calls Atlanta home, this lyric video kind of fits how the Wizards should have approached the last 24 hours:

Really, the Wizards should forget that they laid a goose egg last night and do what they can to win this game. It won't be easy, but since ATL played a game yesterday as well, it's not like tired legs should be an excuse.

Let's get back to 4-2 before a highly anticipated game against OKC.
