Professional basketball player Dominique Wilkins signs autographs at expo
With International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) attendees waiting in line, NBA Hall of Famer, Dominique Wilkins, was in attendance at the 2014 IPPE on Tuesday, Jan. 28. The basketball legend joked with attendees and posed for pictures, in addition to signing autographs.
One of NBA's true marquee players for more than a decade, Dominique Wilkins earned the nickname "Human Highlight Film" with a plethora of spectacular individual plays dating back to his college years at the University of Georgia. A member of the NBA All-Rookie Team in 1983, the high-flying 6'8" forward was named to seven All-NBA teams and nine consecutive All-Star squads and is a two-time winner of the NBA Slam-Dunk Championship.
One of only 12 players to score over 25,000 points in his NBA career, Wilkins returned to the NBA in 1996-97 after one year in Europe and led the San Antonio Spurs in scoring with an 18.2 average at the age of 37. He left the NBA ranked seventh on the all-time scoring list with 26,534 points and 10th in career scoring average at 25.3 ppg (points per game).
Comprised of the three integrated tradeshows - International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo - the global annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show is taking place this week at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga. IPPE will feature the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of poultry, meat and feed products and will also feature dynamic education programs addressing current industry issues.
