Dominique Wilkins – one of the greatest high flyers in NBA history – says he knows how to fix the (broken) slam dunk contest, telling TMZ Sports superstars must participate … just like he and Michael Jordan did back in the day.
TMZ Sports spoke with the Hall of Famer – a 2x Slam Dunk champ known for his prowess as a dunker – about why the dunk contest has fallen out of favor with NBA fans, and how he would fix it:
Dominique Wilkins played 15 seasons for 5 teams, including the Hawks and Celtics. He averaged 24.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists in 1,074 regular-season games.
Wilkins was selected to play in 9 All-Star games. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006.
