The Atlanta Hawks went all out on Friday to honor Dominique Wilkins, and one of the most entertaining aspects of the tribute was a pregame projection tribute. You can watch the entire tribute above and prepare to be mesmerized by the great 3-D graphics which were projected on the hardwood.
Very cool stuff from the folks at Phillips Arena, to say the least.
The tribute rivals that of the Atlanta Hawks social media team who dropped one of the better Tweets honoring ‘Nique that you will ever see:

And it should be noted that the Hawks also unveiled a statue in Dominique’s honor just outside the arena on Friday. The legend himself was on hand to snap some photos in front of it with some lucky fans.
