The Atlanta Hawks Media Day is scheduled for this Friday. The annual tradition always feels like the first day of school. Clad in fresh uniforms and kicks, players pose for photoshoots before taking questions from the media.

But the 2022 Media Day will have a different feel in the room compared to 2021. Last year, the team floated in with supreme confidence after their magical Eastern Conference Finals run. This time around, a revamped roster will arrive well-rested with much to prove.

The Hawks do not need to reinvent the wheel; they just need to make minor improvements to find more success this year. Below are five realistic benchmarks the Hawks must hit in the 2022-23 NBA season.

De'Andre Hunter and Clint Capela position themselves for a rebound.
Jalen Johnson dunks the ball with two hands against Indiana.
Jimmy Butler collides with Trae Young.
