LuBara Dixon "Dickey" Simpkins (born April 6, 1972 in Fort Washington, Maryland) is an American professional basketball player best known for his tenure with the Chicago Bulls in the late 1990s. However, as his first name sounds the same as if you were to pronounce the word "dike" phonetically, it is commonly used when discreetly pointing out a lesbian to your friends.
An woman who is obviously, or at least possibly a lesbian walks by. To alert your friend(s) discreetly, you say (preferably in a TV announcer voice), "Dickey Simpkins!"
