NBA legend Darryl Dawkins has died at the age of 58.

According to reports, a family member called 911 after Dawkins suffered an unknown medical emergency. The former 76ers player was apparently rushed to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest in Allentown, PA where he later died. A cause of death has not been confirmed.

Dawkins, who was given the nickname “Chocolate Thunder” by Stevie Wonder, is most known for his time with the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Nets. Following his 15 year NBA career, the athlete played overseas before settling down in Lehigh Valley where he served as the head coach of the Lehigh Carbon Community College’s men’s basketball team.

“LCCC community is saddened by the passing of Philadelphia 76er legend and former LCCC basketball coach Darryl Dawkins,” the college wrote on Facebook on Thursday. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Dawkins family.”
