RIP Chocolate Thunder

Darryl Dawkins passed away today at 58.

He was the first H.S. player taken in Round 1 of an NBA Draft, to the 76ers.

Rest In Peace Darryl.

Re: RIP Chocolate Thunder

RIP......remember when he first played for 76ers sitting on the bench with a big SE grin. Never saw anybody break a backboard out before him.

6 o'clock news states it was a heart attack

Re: RIP Chocolate Thunder

I thought this was going to be a tribute to a chocolate lab. I forgot that was his nick name. One heck of a ball player.

Re: RIP Chocolate Thunder

In case anybody forgot, Dawkins claimed to be an alien from the planet Lovetron, where he spent the off-season practicing "interplanetary funkmanship" and where his girlfriend Juicy Lucy lived.

RIP Darryl. Maybe he's not really dead, maybe he went back to Lovetron. Who knows?

It’s funny until somebody gets hurt, then it’s hilarious
