Last night twitter was abuzz with activity after NBA Hall of Famer an former Atlanta Hawk Dominque Wilkins was allegedly attacked after last night’s Hawks game.

On Saturday March 20, the first day of Spring in Atlanta was brought in with a mean crossover, sweet jump shot and hard hustle as over 400 local youth ages 12-18 participated in Converse Open Gym at Morehouse College.
In addition to competing in pick-up basketball games and receiving complimentary Converse gear and haircuts from Master Barber Coty Morgan, the youth were also treated to a visit from Atlanta Hawks Forward Maurice Evans and Ryan Cameron of V-103 FM.
I teamed up with Converse here at Open Gym in Atlanta to give kids an opportunity to play basketball in a safe environment. I’m honored to be a Converse athlete and excited about the great things planned for Atlanta that will create positive environments for kids to stay active and have fun. ~ Maurice Evans
Awwwww….Shout out to Mo Evans and M320 consulting for the invite.! I love seeing athletes give back to their community.

Chris Brown and Usher Raymond were spotted courtside at last night’s Atlanta Hawks game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers. I heard the Chris Brown was boo’d when his image came up on the JumboTron, while Usher snickered nearby.
The game was full of celebrity sightings, including Atlanta staples like Antwan ‘Big Boi’ Patton & Chris Tucker. While it was a hot game to see and be seen, the Hawks lost 95-84. Fortunately for them, they get to try again on tonight.
Check out a few courtside photos from last nights game:
