Adam and Aaron discuss Dominique Wilkins‘ first-game back in Atlanta, as an opposition player – March 25th, 1994. Nique dropped 36 points on his former team, as the L.A. Clippers defeated the Atlanta Hawks by three points. This game took place just four weeks after the Hawks’ blockbuster trade, that sent Dominique to the Clippers, in exchange for two-time NBA All-Star, Danny Manning.
We discuss all the key aspects of the game. We talk about the SportSouth broadcast and its commentary team of Tim Brando and Mike Glenn. Bob Weiss is overlooked in this story-line. He was now coaching the Clippers, however, had just spent the previous three seasons, with the Hawks. We chat about the commentary team’s mention of an alleged rivalry between former teammates, Kevin Willis (1992 NBA All-Star) and The Human Highlight Film. We talk about each team’s roster and our memories and opinions on this memorable match-up – arguably a forgotten gem of the 1994 NBA season.
As per usual, the conversation is scattered with humor and plenty of insight. A must-listen, for die-hard NBA fans, regardless of the team you support.
The most prominent players mentioned in this episode, include: Ron Harper, Mark Jackson, Mookie Blaylock, Stacey Augmon, Bo Outlaw, Harold Ellis, Duane Ferrell, Jon Koncak, John Williams & Elmore Spencer.
