'80s Highlights 

'Nique earned his nickname "The Human Highlight Film" during this decade. He didn't just get his points from rim rocking jams, though. Wilkins was also capable of scoring from anywhere and when he was on fire nobody was safe. He took home the scoring title in '86 and had legendary duels with the likes of Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. Often an afterthought because of the era he played in, Dominique will always be appreciated in these streets.
