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.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
