There's been a Steve Belkin sighting in Philips Arena. The most prominent face among the group buying the arena, Hawks and the NHL's Thrashers recently visited Atlanta -- to attend a Bette Midler concert, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. But Belkin hopes to have the pending Hawk purchase approved by the NBA soon. "There is still a slim possibility we will get this thing (approved) by the 31st (of January), but I think more than likely it will slip a week or two," Belkin said Jan. 26. "The NBA process is further ahead; there are very small (remaining) issues with the NBA. The NHL process has been behind the NBA process, so more of the energy and emphasis is being put on the NHL this week."

Caught this on the Hawks page on ESPN.... hurry it up so we can do some stuff before the trade deadline. And hire Doc Rivers as GM ASAP

I am shocked how long the Hawks have taken to close the ownership deal. Its also been disappointing since no serious trades can be done before the deal is final.
