The Atlanta Hawks have been one of the league’s best teams when it’s come to social media and promotional nights.

This one might just make then No. 1 in the power rankings.

According to the team, Hawks CEO Steve Koonin is prepared to pay for the wedding of a couple who met at the team’s “Swipe Right Night” in 2015.

The promotion was a Tinder-based deal to get singles together at Hawks games.

And Koonin’s response, via the team website:

“Avery and Ben: We are super excited for how your relationship has grown since you met at our first Swipe Right Night, and I will absolutely make good on my promise for the Hawks to host your wedding. We can’t wait to start making plans and meet your new little one.” – CEO Steve Koonin

As someone who has personally attended a wedding between folks who met on NBA Twitter, this continues to show basketball really does bring people together.
