During an era of VHS tapes and short basketball shorts, and long before downloads of incredible NBA dunks could be viewed on your cell phone, Dominique Wilkins soared to the top of every basketball fan’s list as the original NBA Human Highlight Reel.
Fittingly, former Atlanta Hawk Dominique Wilkins jumps into my FREE NBA comic book for the non-stop, jaw-dropping highlights he provided on the hardwood…or should I say from ten plus feet above the court!
Wilkins regularly rose above NBA peers as that one special athlete whose extraordinary athletic achievements merited the moniker Human Highlight Reel.
This NBA legend’s hardwood exploits brought instantaneous expectation whenever – and wherever – he played. Wilkins never limited his game to just one incredible play per night. Just as his name suggests, he produced a film reel full of incredible plays.
Today, Atlanta fans hope Dominique can transform his former on-court success into a future off-court Human Highlight Reel.
Now that would be an ESPN highlight reel worth watching!
MIKE – thee ultimate talking head on sports!
