Remembering Reggie Lewis

RedsArmyAdmin July 27, 2009 Uncategorized 1 Comment

Boston lost Reggie Lewis 16 years ago today.  I still see the video him crumpling to the floor against Charlotte running through my mind.  The pain of Len Bias was still fresh.  And every time I see a story of the NBA giving a team cap relief for an injury, I think about the Celtics not getting cap relief for the death of Reggie Lewis.

Those thoughts are the ones that run through my head when I think of Reggie Lewis.  I think of what might have been… how his death was the first domino that spiraled the C's into their worst stretch in franchise history. 

For a fantastic look back on Reggie's life, head over to Loy's Place.
