I got a kick out of watching him play. He was some kinda force. One of my favorite memories was of a game he played against the Sonics in the late 70s when we had Paul Silas on the team. Silas was one of the few people in the league who was badder in toto than Dawkins. Not bigger, just older, wiser, and with more cred.

On one play they went up for a rebound and somehow Dawkins bounced off of Silas's shoulders and went to the court while Silas got the board. DD jumps up with obvious angry agitation which slowly dissolved into low grade fussing and fuming when he saw it was Silas, who was looking at him with a 'what ya gonna do?'
