Dominique Wilkins, who somehow didn't get into the Basketball Hall of Fame on his first try, will be getting in on go-round #2. Official word hasn't come down yet, but various reports have him getting in, along with former Pistons guard and current GM Joe Dumars and UConn women's coach Geno Auriemma.
If you're a young buck who hasn't had much of a chance to see Dominique in action, or you just need a reminder, give this a look:
Best in-game dunker of all-time. He had a power and explosiveness that allowed him to come out of nowhere and posterize anyone, almost at will. Congrats, 'Nique.
And the better news for Dominique? He doesn't have to share a stage with Dick Vitale. Dickie V was on the ballot, but did not make the cut. I can sense that many of you are very distraught right now.
