It was a special occasion when I got to sit down with NBA and Atlanta Hawks legend, Dominique Wilkins. While helping out the Allstate “Champions of Good” program, Wilkins had a few moments to chat it up about his basketball career and the current state of the Atlanta Hawks franchise.
It’s wild because after covering the Hawks games this season, I saw Wilkins often but never had the chance to speak to him. Wilkins was very nice, comical and friendly and was a pleasure to interview. I was very honored to do the interview on behalf of BSO and Past The Pen.
In the interview, Wilkins speaks on his favorite dunk contest, being in the shadow of Michael Jordan, the Hawks new uniforms and more. Wilkins also drops a few gems about the NBA in the 80s compared to now. Check out the interview below and feel free to share.
