    My sincere condolences to the family of Connie Hawkins, Who passed away last Friday at the age of 75, Connie Hawkins was one of the Best cats to ever come out of New York city(In any era), Along with Connie Hawkins being the precursor to Julius Erving in regards to, “Slingin it”, On cats via palming the pill(Facts), Connie Hawkins was a legend at the Rucker during the 1960’s,70′,s, Playing against cats

    Like, Earl Manigault, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Jabbar, Pee Wee Kirkland, Joe Hammond, Willis Reed, Jackie Jackson(Harlem Globetrotters), Tiny Archibald, Charlie Scott, Etc, One funny moment that i will always remember in regards to Connie Hawkins came about during an interview with Connie Hawkins at halftime of a Philadelphia 76er’s game(Philadelphia 76er’s were playing the Phoenix

    Suns in Phoenix in 1992), The cat who was interviewing Connie Hawkins, Asked Connie Hawkins if he could still, “Dunk”, And Connie Hawkins responded back by saying yes he can still, “Dunk”, At 50 years of age in 1992/LOL, Well, Connie Hawkins did dunk during the interview, Though, Connie Hawkins needed 15 days of rest to finish the interview(Facts/LOL).

    Much Respect
