Dominique Wilkins is mourning the passing of his mother, Gertrude Baker.
The 63-year-old Atlanta Hawks basketball legend, who is also known as “The Human Highlight Film,” took to social media on Saturday (September 2) to pay tribute to his beautiful mother.
Dominique shared a portrait of his mother along with the caption:
Rest in Power mom ❤️ My mother was one of the strongest, bravest, and kindest humans to grace this planet.
Without her, I wouldn’t be here today, I wouldn’t be the person I am, and I wouldn’t have the life I have.
She is everything to me, and more, and there’s no way I could ever quantify the importance she’s held in my life.

Please join me in uplifting Dominque Wilkins and his family in prayer during their time of bereavement.
