Vote for the greatest Illawarra Hawks of all time

Voting has now closed. The 12 Greatest Hawks of All Time will be revealed in a special edition of the Illawarra Mercury, in conjunction with a heritage round clash between the Hawks and Breakers, on January 13.

Who would be on your Illawarra Hawks dream team?

Choose ten players from the shortlist who you think should comprise the 12 Greatest Hawks of All Time.

All entrants will go in the draw to win a signed, special edition, vintage Illawarra Hawks singlet which features the name of every player who's ever played for the club.

A judging panel featuring some of the biggest names of Hawks basketball has assembled a squad of 40 players for you to vote from. 

The panel voting will be weighted against the public vote to decide the final make-up of the 12. 

Players who have had their jerseys retired - Gordie McLeod, Chuck Harmison, Melvin Thomas, Mat Campbell, and Glen Saville  - are automatically included in the Greatest Hawks of All Time team.

The Illawarra Mercury will host a special heritage round clash between the Hawks and New Zealand Breakers at the WEC on January 13.

In conjunction with that clash there will be a special edition of the Illawarra Mercury revealing the 12 Greatest Hawks of All Time.

Voting opens on January 1, 2018 and closes at 9am on January 8.
