One of the best point guards in Hawks history, Daron “Mookie” Blaylock ran the Atlanta offense for much of the decade (1992-99). Known for his fast feet, pinpoint passes and accuracy from long range, Blaylock was an all-around threat for opponents whenever he touched the ball. On the defensive end, Blaylock was equally dangerous, leading the NBA in steals from 1996-1998.
