Dominique Wilkins Rumors
Yes, you read that headline correctly. Rapper Master P has announced his intentions to make new sneakers for NBA Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins. Master P’s no stranger to making his own footwear, and he even had a few NBA contracts in the late ’90s, but truth be told, this idea seems like it came out of nowhere. “I’m working on something right now, real soon, the Dominique Wilkins shoes,” Master P said in an interview with Hip Hop Wired while wearing a Wilkins throwback jersey.
“This innovative surface provides technologically enhanced products that will aid in the overall protection and longevity of the athlete by reducing stress on commonly used joints and lessening the likelihood of serious head injury, should a fall occur. Sport Court PowerGame™ surface has also been utilized on various community courts associated with the Atlanta Hawks Foundation, Nike 3×3 tournaments and Youth Olympic Basketball. Partnered in this joint venture is wife of Dominique, Sunny Wilkins, Esq., also an athlete in her own right. Sunny is excited about the Signature Series Sport Courts as she believes “It gives the opportunity for families to come together, as a family, for an outdoor activity so kids and their parents can stay healthy, bond and play together.”
The All-Star duo of CBA Sports and the world renowned Human Highlight Film will also focus on grass root fundamentals with basketball camps and fundamental ‘tech – ‘Nique’ videos that are soon to come for families to enjoy on their backyard courts. The videos will pinpoint the essentials and fundamentals of the game from novice to advance basketball players for boys and girls. Getting families physically fit and interacting with their kids outside on his signature line is of the upmost important to Wilkins.
Wilkins Signature Series are offered in three different variations: The Rookie Series (30’x30’), Pro Series (30’x50’), and Legend Series (36’x66’). The first recipient of Nique’s signature court was purchased by Don Barden for his son’s fraternity Lambda Chi at the University of Auburn. Wilkins will personally attend the ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday April 6th at 5pm.
Q: Is Atlanta a good NBA town, in terms of fan interest and support? Dominique Wilkins: I think it definitely has become one. It’s come back, especially with what these guys did last year and are doing this year. They brought basketball back here and I’m proud of that. I’m proud to be around these guys.
