The NBA lost an icon Thursday when the legendary Darryl Dawkins passed away following a heart attack.
While “Chocolate Thunder” — the fifth overall selection to the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1975 NBA Draft — was a solid all-around center, the man from planet LoveTron was best known for his rim-shattering dunks.
One announcer remarks at how Dawkins, ever the showman, “has 17 different nicknames for his slam dunks.”
Nos. 15 and 7 are two of our favorites — showing off Dawkins’ freakish length and power. His rim-shattering dunks can be found in the top five, while the top two are just too great to even try to describe.
