79 122 | Darryl Dawkins First Backboard Broken & the Pope


Get this, Darryl Dawkins broke his first NBA backboard (he would do it a second time too) in Kansas City, on the date of November 13, 1979.  This is the same year that Pope John Paul II, who replaced the '33 Day Pope', visited the United States, the first 'Papal Visit'.  Both the date of the incident and the location have a connection to the current Pope, Pope Francis.

11/13/1979 = 11+13+19+79 = 122
