R.I.P. LENNY BIAS 1963-1986
I recently viewed espn’s 30 for 30 a series that highlights sports greats behind the scenes and away from all the glitz and glamour. The most recent installment featured the late Len Bias. For those of you youngins who are unaware of who exactly Len bias is, I have compiled a few videos for you to get a faint idea of the impact that Len’s life (and death) had on sports… period.
Physically gifted,and humble, Len was often categorized as a future great of the NBA with the likes of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson. Len’s life was cut short due to his recreational drug use and denied himself the opportunity to ever be known as one of the elite. Sadly it leaves the burning question in my mind “What if….” “what if he got to shine with rob parish and larry bird?” “How good could he have really been?”…. we’ll never know.
