The Human Highlight Film gets his due

Jacques Dominique Wilkins is going to finally sit at the table and get his due. 'Nique was on the ballot for the Hall of Fame the first go but didn't make it but it looks like things have changed in the Human Highlight's favor on his second go around.

Dominique was the best in game dunker-better than cats like Jordan, Barkley and Darryl "Chocolate Thunder" Dawkins. Wilkins played for the Atlanta Hawks until he was traded to the LA Clippers in '94 and then signed as a free agent with the Boston Celtics on July 25, 1994. Happy to see 'Nique in Beantown, I attended some games and witnessed the man put it down like the king that he is.

Others that nominated as well include Charles "The Round Mound of Rebound" Barkley, former Pistons guard and current GM Joe Dumars and UConn's Geno Auriemma.
