ack Twyman, the NBA Hall of Famer, died last week. Although he's primarily known for his humanitarianism, he was also the color analyst for ABC's coverage of the NBA in the 60s and early 70s. In fact, he's responsible for one of the great calls of all time: Willis Reed's dramatic appearance prior to the 7th game of the 1970 finals. After that, the Lakers didn't have a chance.
Over at Our Word, I have an appreciation of Jack Twyman, the player and the man.
