Official Connie Hawkins Player Tee

Connie Hawkins' long and storied pro basketball career began in 1961 with the Pittsburgh Rens of the short-lived American Basketball League. When that league folded, Hawkins joined the Harlem Globetrotters. In 1967, he joined a brand new pro league called the American Basketball Association (ABA). He returned to Pittsburgh, this time playing for the Pipers. In 1969, he joined the established league and played for three teams in that circuit before retiring in 1976.
