The entire country, if not the world, is still dealing with the sudden and unexpected passing of Chadwick Boseman when things got worse the very next day.
Former NBA all-star Clifford Robinson passed away the following day as well as Lute Olson earlier in the week.
The NBA honored these greats with imagery on the court’s video screens in Orlando, Florida just before playoff games returned to action.
Boseman’s death was due to him suffering in silence with colon cancer. He was originally diagnosed back in 2016 and continued to work like crazy despite his impending fate.
Clifford Robinson played 17 seasons in the NBA with his most notable stint occurring between 1989 and 1997 with the Portland Trail Blazers, where he made the All-Star team in the 1993-94 season.
Lute Olson was a legendary college coach most known for his 24-year tenure as the head coach of the Arizona men’s basketball team.
