    Yeah, but they don't count because they were Jewish athletes 50 years ago. (YankeeFan)

    Seriously, RIP to an early NBA star.

    First coach of the Buffalo Braves. What a horrible collection of players he had, trumped only by the even less-talented players on the expansion Cleveland Cavaliers.

    He "discovered" Randy Smith, a soccer player at Buffalo State who also dabbled in basketball. One of the all-time steals in NBA history as a 7th-round pick.

    The Larry Bird of the 40s/50s (although Pettit might be a closer match).

    One of the last, if not THE last, big stars to use a set shot as a regular weapon (Don Nelson had a set shot, but he wasn't a 'star' or even close to it).
