Sure do remember Darryl Dawkins well coming into the NBA at age 18, right out of high school and getting right in the there with the Philadelphia 76er’s and he had quite a career…Dawkins and Bill Willoughby both came into the league at the same time at 18 and that would have been 40 years ago this season…Darryl Dawkins will be missed, the fans loved him and he had some great posters back in the day…..The man could slam and shatter a backboard in a minute…..
RIP Darryl Dawkins…..
DARRYL DAWKINS DIES AT AGE 58
He was dubbed “Chocolate Thunder” for his backboard-shattering dunks during his 14-year NBA career, mostly with the Sixers and Nets. His family said in a statement that he died of a heart attack.
