Farewell to Chocolate Thunder

I was sad to hear of the recent passing of Darryl Dawkins at the early age of 58. As a teenager I had posters of Chocolate Thunder in my bedroom and dreamed of being able to break backboards some day like he did. He was a dominant presence in the paint and yet had a great sense of humor and was a fun player to watch. Check out some of his highlights on this short clip.


RIP at planet Lovetron.
