Unconfirmed reports another college basketball legend, John Thompson, has died. 

I didn’t like him, his program, his style, his anything.

But I respect him as one of the great coaches in college BBall history.

RIP

Magic Johnson(who is HIV Positive) is  one of the Co-Owners of the La Dodgers who won the Baseball World Series Tuesday. He was on the field during the Trophy Celebration with a player who was later found out to have tested positive for Covid-19.   That title could be a deadly one

Nah.

COVID-19 is no more deadly for the vast majority of people with HIV than it is for any average "healthy" person, with the exception of those who are HIV+, and unaware of their positive status – hence they won't be on effective HIV meds and their CD4 cell count will be compromised, making their immune system vulnerable.

Not even Bob fucking Cousy has heard of Bob Cousy. Come on Bearer, man, get a grip and quash this pathetic proliferation (ohhh!) of pointless, preposterous (ooooohHHH!!) postifications peremptorially (OOOOOOOhhhh!!!).

 

Old people of no news and even less interest.  Cf Holbrook, Maranne, Dinkins,  Harris, etc. It's vanity thread-creation. Star Crossed/Hopkins will be turning on his spit in hell.

Damn this one hits home.  My dad had season tickets to U-D basketball and Terry Duerod was probably my favourite player.  He turned out to be a champ and a great role model.  
 

Former NBA guard Terry Duerod died Friday morning at the age of 64.  He quietly battled leukemia for the past seven months, and was in hospice care for the last week.

A 6’2″ guard, Duerod played college basketball under Dick Vitale at the University of Detroit. In four seasons at Detroit, Duerod scored 1,690 points, averaging 23.3 points per game during his senior season.

Duerod spent 4 seasons in the NBA, and won the NBA title in 1980-1981 with the Boston Celtics.

After his NBA career was over, Duerod transitioned to a new, nearly three-decade-long career as a firefighter in the city of Detroit.

RIP

Florida star Keyontae Johnson remains hospitalized and is in critical but stable condition after collapsing on the court Saturday in the first half of the Gators' game against No. 20 Florida State. Johnson's grandfather, Larry DeJarnett, told USA Todaythat his grandson is in a medically induced coma which doctors are hoping to bring him out of on Monday afternoon. DeJarnett also said Johnson was transported to a hospital in Gainesville, Florida, on Monday after receiving treatment in Tallahassee, the location of Saturday's game.
