For any NBA fan that grew up in the 1980’s and 1990’s, they will always think of Dominique Wilkins when the term highlight is brought up. He was nicknamed “The Human Highlight Film” for his thunderous dunks and for his outstanding play on the court.
Wilkins played most of his NBA career for the Atlanta Hawks. The nine-time NBA All-Star was elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006. He was also the 1986 NBA Scoring Champion. Now Wilkins is the Vice President of Basketball Operations for the Hawks. This year he has created the first ever Dominique Wilkins Fantasy Camp, where fans of the NBA get to feel just like a player in the league.
We chat with Dominique about his time in the league, fatherhood, dunk contests, his camp, his signature shoes with Reebok, and more.
