Darryl Dawkins nicknamed "Chocolate Thunder" passed away this week. Known for his powerful dunks which included breaking two backboards in 1979. He played for the Philadelphia 76ers, the New Jersey Nets, and Detroit Pistons.

Here is a compilation of 20 of his best dunks..

I remember when he broke the back board. I loved it... after I was sure no one got hurt. See you Sept. 1st for BOTB. Thanks for the good thoughts left on my blog!
