The NBA family is still mourning the loss of “Chocolate Thunder” Darryl Dawkins, who passed away at the age of 58.

Charles Barkley, appearing on the Dan Patrick Show, talked about how he never found Dawkins in a bad mood — he was always “jovial.” Dawkins had become an ambassador of the game, someone beloved by all. And someone who will be missed.
