Dominique Wilkins is one of the greatest athletes the game of basketball has ever seen. His dunking prowess is legendary, as 'The Human Highlight Film' got his nickname by pulling off moves very few had seen before in the NBA. His iconic dunk contest wars with Michael Jordan are a must-watch for any NBA fan.
Wilkins was snubbed from the NBA's 50th Anniversary List in 1996, but it was all made right when he was added to the 75th Anniversary List. He spoke about all this and more in a recent interview with Spun.com. In the same interview, he also shared thoughts on how the NBA can improve the modern dunk contest.
However, the biggest talking point Wilkins left us with is his Mount Rushmore of all-time dunkers.
