Q&A with Darryl Dawkins
I've enjoyed doing many things since Dallas especially meeting NBA fans and traveling. I've also been busy with my mother and family. The NBA Playoffs and Finals have been capturing my attention. I'm still wearing his Yeti shoes.
What are you most looking forward to on tour this summer?
I am looking forward to the new activation and bigger crowds at NBA Nation. And of course meeting the kids and giving away some prizes!
Talk to us about the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown. Why do you enjoy being a judge?
The Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown is the premiere dunk contest for the best amateur dunk artists around the country. Each year Sprite and the NBA team up to scour the country for the best amateur dunkers. I enjoy watching guys who come up with something completely new and bring their best dunks.
How many shots is it going to take Chocolate Thunder to make a basket on the Sprint Ultimate Shot, our new 25 ft. hoop?
Well, it won’t be 20 shots but it will hopefully be less than 10!!
We have a few new stops this year: Sacramento, Indianapolis and Detroit… It’s only right you appropriately dunk-ify them!
