While fans at Philips Arena celebrated the Hawks second playoff win over the Celtics Tuesday night, team mascot Harry the Hawk was somewhere feeling the burn.

A bike-share program will finally kick off this summer in Atlanta.

Clark Atlanta University is getting a bona fide ex-NBA player and coach to steer its b-ball team. Darrell Walker played 10 seasons in the league and was a member of the championship ’92-’93 Chicago Bulls.
 
Usher's star turn as boxer Sugar Ray Leonard gets a preview in the trailer for the Roberto Duran biopic Hands of Steel, which also stars Robert De Niro and Edgar Ramirez.

And, yeah, ICYMI: The Treasury Department has decided abolitionist Harriet Tubman's face will replace notorious slave owner and president Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill in the year 2030.

Additionally, a redesign of the $5 bill will honor Dr. King's 1963 "I Have a Dream Speech."
