A popular New York City playground player, Hawkins received a scholarship to Iowa, but gambling allegations surfaced during his freshman year and Hawkins was expelled from Iowa and in 1964 was not drafted by any NBA team. Hw was not drafted in 1965 either and was formally banned from the NBA in 1966. Hawkins played for the A.B.L. and later the Harlem Globetrotters (1963-'67) and was a member of the A.B.A.'s first championship team, the Pittsburgh Pipers in 1967-'68 and won the league M.V.P. that season. He was limited by injuries while playing for the Minnesota Pipers in 1968-'69 and joined the NBA's Phoenix Suns the following year and played in the next four N.B.A. All-Star Games. He spent two seasons with the Lakers and one with the Hawks before retiring. Despite his late arrival in the spotlight, Hawkins still made enough of an impact to earn a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992.
