Abstract:

Basketball player Dominique Wilkins was born on January 12, 1960 in Paris, France. He attended the University of Georgia from 1979 to 1982, when he was drafted third overall by the NBA's Utah Jazz, and quickly traded to the Atlanta Hawks, where he stayed for over eleven years. He was a nine-time NBA All-Star and a member of the Dream Team II, which won the 1994 World Championship of Basketball. The Hawks retired Wilkins’ #21 jersey in 2001, and in 2006, he was inducted into The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. In 2000, he began working to educate people about diabetes, leading to a 2007 partnership with former Congressman Newt Gingrich to start Nique and Newt’s Full-Court Press on Diabetes. In 2010, the Georgia State Senate declared Wilkins Georgia’s official Diabetes Ambassador. In 2004, Wilkins became the Atlanta Hawks’ vice president of basketball, as well as a regular commentator during home games.
