Should Hawks move weekday start times?

I wrote earlier today that the Hawks are giving serious consideration to moving start times up to 7:30 p.m. for weekday games. Here is the link to the story with the details.

The team moved start times to 8 p.m. for Monday-Friday games last season with the hope that it would help with traffic congestion and have more fans in their seats for the opening tip-off.

A decision has yet to be made and likely won’t until the NBA releases the regular-season schedule in the next two weeks.

What do you think? Should the Hawks move game times to 7:30 p.m. or keep them at 8 p.m.?
