With the Atlanta Hawks in London Thursday for a game against the Brooklyn Nets, the franchise set out on a mission to recreate Dominique Wilkins’ iconic photo by the Tower Bridge. Mother nature provided the perfect weather to allow Wilkins to toss the ball up in front of the bridge just as he did 21 years ago.
Wilkins spent the majority of his Hall of Fame career with the Hawks before bouncing around to several other NBA and European teams to end his career. Atlanta retired his No. 21 jersey on January 13, 2001.
