Legendary NBA dunk machine Darryl Dawkins is convinced Stevie Wonder is fooling the world and can actually see way more than he lets on -- and his proof is the fact Stevie gave him his famous nickname.

Back in DD's playing days, Stevie dubbed him Chocolate Thunder ... a totally appropriate moniker if you've ever seen the 7-footer throw down one of his monster jams. But it does raise the question -- how the hell did Stevie know?

Our photog also asked Dawkins some of his rejected dunk names ... and if you can understand them all, you're better than we are.
