Having the great Stevie Wonder give you a nickname is a whole level of greatness by itself. Dawkins lived true to the name with his powerful dunks, breaking the backboard twice in one season in 1979. Speaking of those dunks, Dawkins also because known for giving them names. They include the Chocolate-Thunder-Flying, Robinzine-Crying, Teeth-Shaking, Glass-Breaking, Rump-Roasting, Bun-Toasting, Wham-Bam, Glass-Breaker-I-Am-Jam, the Yo-Mama, and Spine-Chiller Supreme. It's no wonder naming your dunks went out of style with corny names like these.
