Gone, but never forgotten..

25 years ago this week, the world lost Len Bias. I remember it vividly. I was 15 years old and living in a suburb of Boston at the time. I woke-up on a warm summer morning to the news that Bias had died of a "drug overdose." The details of that fateful night came out later on in the afternoon. I headed over to the neighborhood basketball court where myself and my friends talked about the stunning loss of such a young, talented man.

While watching a clip of ESPN's "30 for 30" on YouTube this weekend, I came across this short tribute to Len. He's gone, but not forgotten.

    As a life-long C’s fan and a Maryland alumni, this story still breaks my heart, a very painful memory. Coulda, Woulda, Shouda.
