Today marks Darryl "Chocolate Thunder" Dawkins' 56th birthday, and if you didn't know, he was a bad man. One of the best dunkers of his generation, Dawkins wasn't into the flash as much as some of his peers, but more about the power. Power that sometimes led to backboards being shattered and fans losing their shit. He wasn't the only man to ever do it though, Shaq sent a few backboards to the graveyard, a couple high school ballers triple teamed one rim, and even MJ got into the mix. In honor of these ridiculously awesome feats of athleticism and power, we've wrangled together the best we've ever seen. Without further a do, The Greatest Backboard-Shattering Dunks Of All Time.
