NBA Notes: The Passing of a Legend and a Familiar Fate
Legendary Hall of Fame Coach Chuck Daly lost his bout with cancer this morning. He was 78. Daly led the Pistons to back-to-back championships and coached the original Dream Team. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1996. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
Yao Ming is out for the remainder of the season with a broken foot. He was relatively healthy this year after missing significant time the previous three seasons. He should be fine for the start of next year, but I’m afraid that he will be plagued with foot issues his whole career.
