Turbo Sexophonic Delight

Galley Friend B.W. sends this link to one of the all-time greatest interviews ever: Darryl Dawkins. Samples:
Q: You've claimed to come from Planet Lovetron but actually grew up in Orlando. When did you realize the discrepancy?

A: I realized the discrepancy when I was about 18 years old. When I figured out I had more funk than most people from Orlando. I had too much funk to be tied down to one hometown so I went off to Lovetron. . . .

Q: You named your dunks: Your Mama, In Your Face Disgrace, Cover Yo Damn Head, Earthquake Breaker, Left-Handed Spine Chiller Supreme and more. How did you come up with this name: Turbo Sexophonic Delight?

A: It was just a swivel of the hips. You had to swivel the hips so fast that you coulda kicked in the turbo on a new car. And for the sexophonic part, you had to do a little hump -- a little boogie while you're going in there. You know, seeing Parliament without their funk is like seeing Darryl Dawkins without his dunk. I had to have it, man.

Stick a fork in the Iggles.

Cowboys 21, Birds 20. With that last toss, McNabb is coming dangerously close to proving T.O.'s point.

Darryl Dawkins brings back fond memories... since I'm from Portland and back then was when the Trailblazers beat the 76ers for the championship, Bill Walton and Maurice Lucas leading the way, Lionel Hollins and Johnny Davis outquicking the Philadelphia guards.

Did Dawkins ever play much after that? Hey, I rooted for you guys when you had Moses Malone.
