With a thunderous dunk, 6-foot-6, 240-pound Lattin set the tone for the 1966 championship game. He scored 16 points and pulled down nine rebounds, living up to his two nicknames: "Big Daddy" and "Daddy D."

Lattin lives in Houston, Texas and is keeping busy with a number of business projects, including buying and selling homes. He also has his own pharmacy, Your Pharmacy Inc., and David Lattin’s Sports and Nutrition for Youth Inc., a nonprofit organization. He recently published a book about his life, Slam Dunk to Glory.
