Darryl Dawkins Shatters His First Backboard- This Day 1979

On this day in 1979 Darryl Dawkins shattered his first backboard. “Chocolate Thunder” was one of the first players to go from high school to the NBA. He never quite lived up to his talent but he was great at shattering the glass. I always rooted against those 76ers teams. Loved Dr.J though.
