A statue of Atlanta Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins outside of the Hawks’ arena would be a great idea, right?! It sounds like a no brainer but it’s taken 20 years after the Human Highlight Film’s final highlight as a Hawk, for them to make this decision.
Dominque Wilkins will get a statue on March 6, 2015.

But obviously from most of the basketball news coming out of the ATL in recent weeks, they have made a lot of bad decisions over the years and it also looks like one person who wants to turn things around for the Hawks is that legend who will have a statue put up on March of next year.
The only thing cooler than seeing Nique – the Hawks best player of all-time- standing next to it, is if they get to address Nique as team owner on that special day.
