Damien Wilkins, known as the wise vet in the Pacers’ locker room, celebrated his 38th birthday on Thursday. This comes a few weeks after he learned that his fiancé would be having a boy — Baby Zion, due in May — and four days after the Pacers waived him before his contract became guaranteed for the remainder of the season. Icing on his birthday cake was being surprised by more than half of the players, plus several other support staff, at a birthday get together in Indy organized by his Jasmine, his fiancé.
Wilkins has been universally praised in the locker room for being a true pro and beyond that, for being a great sounding board for the young guys. “I look up to him in every aspect of the game really, just his approach,” Myles Turner said. “He’s legit the first one here every morning. Like two, three hours before practice, he gets his work in. He’s in the weight room every day. He’s just a true professional and that’s one of the things I really appreciated and I took away from him.”
