Wiki

Dwight E. Davis (born October 11, 1949 in Houston, Texas) is a retired American professional basketball player. After playing college basketball at the University of Houston from 1969-72, Davis was selected as the 3rd overall pick of 1972 NBA Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nicknamed "Double D," Davis played for five seasons in the NBA with two teams: the Cleveland Cavaliers (1972-75) and Golden State Warriors (1975-77). The 6 ft 8 in forward averaged 8.6 points in 340 career regular season games. Dwight was inducted into the "Hall of Honor" at the University of Houston in November of 2006, some 34 years after leaving. He still holds many records for his rebounding, blocked shots and scoring. In 2007, Davis was appointed by New Hampshire Governor John Lynch to the N.H. Workforce Youth Council, and in 2008 he became the chair. He is also a board member of the Greater Seacoast United Way. Dwight spends much of his free time working with at risk teens with lessons on and off the court.
