Larry Bird makes a great joke about Dominique Wilkins statue
The Atlanta Hawks unveiled a statue of the franchise's all-time leading scorer, Dominique Wilkins, on Thursday at an event that featured speeches from NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and Julius Erving, and a video message from Larry Bird.
It was in the message from Bird that the best line of the event came, as the Celtics legend's love of trash talk shined through when discussing the statue.
The statue will be placed outside of Philips Arena for fans to interact with, but Wilkins' former teammate Kevin Willis has a different plan for the statue.
