Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports
Hall of Fame NBA coach Dr. Jack Ramsay died Monday in Naples, Fla., having battled cancer for over a decade. Per ESPN:
quote:

He was 89. Family members say he died peacefully in his sleep.

Ramsay, also an ESPN analyst, coached 20 seasons in the NBA, during which he emphasized fitness, selflessness, ball movement and skill -- qualities that carried his Portland Trail Blazers to the 1976-77 championship.

He has long been an icon in Portland, remembered as much for his distinctive 1970s fashion sense as for the city's only NBA title.
