The 2002-03 NBA season was the Hawks' 54th season in the NBA and 35th season in Atlanta.[1] Atlanta hosted the 2003 NBA All-Star Game. With the offseason acquisition of Glenn Robinson from the Milwaukee Bucks and Theo Ratliff playing in his first full season after dealing with injuries, the Hawks would get off to a 6–4 start. However, they would proceed to struggle as head coach Lon Kruger was fired after Christmas with the team floundering at 11–16. Under replacement Terry Stotts, the Hawks would not do any better as they finished fifth in the Central Division with a 35–47 record, despite winning six of their eight games in April. Following the season, Robinson was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.
