Despite cominng off a 60-win regular season and a trip to the Eastern Conference finals, the Hawks have not sold out their season opener. The Hawks will host the Pistons on Tuesday at 8 p.m.

While several team executives say the game is trending toward being a sellout. However, the fact remains that plenty of seats are currently available via Ticket Master.

Of the 64 sections in Philips Arena, not including the 400 level, 13 are listed as sold out, 41 are characterized with some tickets available and 10 are characterized with many tickets available. This does not include available tickets for resale.

The Hawks season opener will air on Fox Sports Southeast and 92.9 FM.

The first game of a long season, on a Tuesday night, with football season still going on and we are wondering why the game is not sold out.  Most people don't even care about basketball until spring time.

Im really surprised. Aren't there enough black Americans in Atlanta to make it a sellout?
