Dominique Wilkins Rumors
“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.
Q: Why did you decide to partner with CBA Sports instead of doing it own your own? Dominique Wilkins: I looked at their product a while back and really loved it. CBA’s products have become even more advanced over the last couple of years. This is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile. I’ve wanted to put one of their courts in my backyard for a longtime. One night I had a vision and I wanted to do my own signature courts. I wondered if anyone had every done their own signature basketball courts and no one had thought of that. So I had a vision and met with Jay Lilley, CBA’s vice president of marketing and business development, and I told him what I was thinking and asked him if he could bring it to life and put it on paper. I told him everything I envisioned and it came out better than I even imagined. My whole objective was to bring backcourt basketball back into the homes of families to be able to give parents a more interactive experience with their children. It’s not just basketball, it can be used for volleyball, tennis, really anything.
