What else would it be?

It could only be the windup for a windmill dunk.

Hawks great Dominique Wilkins took to social media Wednesday to reveal the pose of the statue that will be erected in his honor outside Philips Arena in March. Wilkins' Twitter account sent out a picture of the mockup for the statue done by Brian Hanlon. "For everyone asking, yes, the mock up and pose is done. It is quite impressive. I couldn't have been more blown away" Wilkins tweeted.

The announcement that a statue would be erected in Wilkins' honor was made Tuesday at a press conference held by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed to discuss the current Hawks controversy.

The statue will be unveiled on March 6 when the Hawks host the Cavaliers. It's location outside Philips Arena has yet to be determined.
