Agreed. Let's not forget about his stellar "rookie" season in '69 when he averaged nearly 25 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists per game. Plus that game he had against the Lakers in the playoffs that same year. Had it not been for that scandal in college, I think we may be talking about Hawkins as a top 20 all time player.

Helped launch the ABA during those early years on the Pipers.
