The “Human Highlight Reel,” Dominique Wilkins remained in Georgia after playing college for the Dawgs in a circuitous route. The Utah Jazz selected him No. 3 overall but they had money problems and Wilkins was reluctant to play for that franchise. He was traded to the Hawks and went on to a Hall-of-Fame career marked by spectacular plays. The 1986 NBA scoring champ had his No. 21 retired by Atlanta. Overall, he scored 26,668 points in a career that saw him play for five NBA teams.
