Anyone who knows me knows I am an avid NBA fanatic. I grew up in New York watching my favorite team the Knicks on MSG network and when lucky enough a couple of memorable moments at Madison Square Garden itself. From Kiki Vandeweghe, the X-man, Starks,Ewing to Oak:Basketball holds some of my fondest memories growing up.The Knicks also had a great role player by the name of Gerald Wilkins whose big brother needs no intro if you love Basketball. Dominique Wilkins was the Monster from the Atlanta Hawks and I always dreaded their visits to the Garden.But it was always fun to watch the brothers match up occasionally against each other since they both usually played the same position. Between Nique and Spud Webb, they were one of the most entertaining teams to watch. I always thought I could possibly dunk because I was taller than Webb. that didnt quite happen. I could tap glass though suckas!
Well recently I was asked to put a little promo mix together by Packer Shoes for Dominique aka "The Human Highlight Film" and the 20th Anniversary release of the Reebok Pump! Anyone growing up in the 80's had a pair or had a homie who made sure his shoes were pumped before he hit the Bball court after school! I use to swear my vertical went up by at least 2 inches wearing them joints! So I put this mix together to commemorate his career and put together some tracks that were out during his time. Kind of like a soundtrack to his life and times. Bet y'all didn't know Nique was not selected to the top 50 greatest playes of all time.WTF? Somebody go wake Commissioner Stern up. Thanks to Mike at Packer shoes for making me part of this project. I feel like finding an ATL Hawks throwback jersey and tryin to slam on fools! Or an aggressive lay up....Get the free download here folks!
