Don’t Start None Won’t Be None! Dominique Wilkins Lumps Up Former NBA Referee For Trying To Put Hands On Him
Posted by Media Outrage on March 31st, 2011
Not only was Dominique Wilkins one of the most electrifying and highest jumpers this league has ever witnessed, he’s obviously also very good holding his hands!
Last night after the Hawks vs Magic game in Atlanta Dominique gave a former NBA ref a nice little eye-jammie!

Rashan Michel = Dominique’s handy work! Got Damn!
The man charged with attacking NBA Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins is disputing that he instigated the incident.
Rashan S. Michel allegedly punched Wilkins after Wednesday night’s Hawks-Magic game because, he said, Wilkins owed him money, Atlanta police said.
Michel, 36, was arrested and charged with one count of simple battery following the incident, Officer K.Y. Jones with Atlanta police told the AJC. Michel was released on $1,000 bond early Thursday morning.
Michel, who told police he was owed money for suits purchased several years ago, hit Wilkins in the chest and also hit a security guard, Jones said. Michel, of Atlanta, has worked as an NBA and college basketball referee and previously owned his own clothing store.
“The fan was promptly arrested and was taken into custody by the Atlanta Police Department,” Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche said in a statement to the AJC. “At this time the Hawks have no additional information or comment regarding this situation.”
NBA.com’s Sekou Smith tweeted that Wilkins got in three “solid” punches during the brief fight, while his assailant landed none.
In a Thursday morning interview with the Frank and Wanda Morning Show on V-103, Michel claimed Wilkins hit him first, cohost Frank Ski told the AJC.
“He said he was approaching Dominique because Dominique owed him about $13,000 and wasn’t paying for the suits, but the security guard grabbed him and after that Dominique punched him first, and he responded,” Ski said, recapping the interview.
Ski said he knows both men personally and called the incident “uncharacteristic of each of them.”
Wilkins, 51, serves as a Hawks vice president and television analyst. Wilkins, who played for the Hawks from 1982 until 1994, ranks 11th on the NBA’s alltime scoring list with 26,668 points.
Wilkins was not injured in the incident, which occurred as he mingled with fans. He had just finished his TV work on press row following the Hawks’ 85-82 win over Orlando. Attempts to reach Wilkins Thursday morning were unsuccessful.
