Former NBA star Dennis Johnson, dies suddenly

Posted on Thu, Feb 22, 2007 at 5:18 PM

Dennis Johnson, the former NBA star for Boston and Seattle, who was coaching the Austin Toros of the NBA's Developmental League (which also includes the Arkansas RimRockers), died suddenly today during the team's practice in Austin. Here's a report.

I'm stunned and saddened. Johnson was a personal hero of this blogger when he helped lead the Celtics to championships in the 1980s. Johnson was 52.
