'90s Highlights

Nique ran wild in the late '80s and he continued to run wild in the '90s regardless of the team he played for. He wasn't as explosive as he once was, but that didn't mean he forgot how to score. Wilkins started the '90s with a bang by winning the 1990 dunk contest while wearing this new shoe called the Pump. And even after a ruptured achilles in '92 forced the Hawks to deal him to the Clippers, 'Nique was still able to instill fear in the hearts of defenders. Wilkins averaged 22 points a game after the injury and ventured off to Europe to play for Panathinaikos and helped them win the '96 Euroleague title.
