One of the greatest scorers in NBA history, Dominique Wilkins has been the symbol of the Atlanta Hawks franchise ever since he joined the team out of the Univ. of Georgia in 1982. Nicknamed the "Human Highlight Film," 'Nique played the game with a breathtaking combination of power and grace, finishing his career as the Hawks all-time leading scorer. Wilkins joined the Hawks as the VP of Basketball in 2004 and continues to bring the same passion and enthusiasm to the organization that brought the fans to their feet in his playing days.
