Darryl Dawkins

Stevie Wonder Can See ...

I Know This!!

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.

The cross that Darryl Dawkins is wearing on his chest is a symbol of utter falsehood, if it relates to the alleged crucifixion of the prophet Jesus, may peace and blessings be upon the prophet, because the prophet was never crucified. That was a conjecture.

Went to the same HS as Dawkins (got there the year after he graduated) He should have been a megastar, but just never reached his full potential in the NBA..was always a funny guy though

You're still blind if all you see is fuzzy shades of color, you know.
