Connie Hawkins passes away at 75

Hall of Famer Connie Hawkins passed away, anyone that saw him play will never forget him. He was Dr. J before Dr. J, the basketball looked like a softball in his huge hands. Due to a college basketball scandal he didn't play in the NBA until he was a 27. He was never named in the scandal but the NBA deemed guilt through association. In New York City he was a playground legend. Truly one of a kind.
