Connie Hawkins Biography
Connie Hawkins was born July 17, 1942, in Brooklyn, New York and is a former National Basketball Association and American Basketball Association player, and New York City playground legend.
Hawkins hit the ground running in his first season with the Suns, 1969-70, where he played 81 games, and averaged 24.6 points per game. He added nearly five assists per game as well. The Suns finished third in the Western Conference, and were knocked out by the Los Angeles Lakers in a seven-game series.
The next two years saw a slight drop off, as Hawkins missed 11 games due to injury during the 1970-71 season, averaging 21 points per game. He would match those stats the next year, and was the top scorer on a per-game basis for the Suns in 1971-72.
His decline became more apparent, as he only averaged 16 points per game in 1972-73 for the Suns, and he was traded to the Lakers in 1973-74.
Injuries limited his production in 1974-75, and Hawkins finished his career after the 1975-76 season, where he played for the Atlanta Hawks. Hawkins was famously beaten in a one-on-one match against singer Paul Simon on NBC's Saturday Night Live in 1975.
Connie Hawkins was named to the ABA's All-Time Team.
Hawkins played in four NBA All-Star Games and was named to the All-NBA First Team in the 1969-70 season. His No. 42 jersey was retired by the Suns.
Despite not having impressive NBA career numbers, voters recognized Hawkins's struggle to play the sport at the highest level, and his performances in other leagues, by inducting him into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992.
