Half Smokes Highlights: 24 Years Ago

It might be hard to believe, but 24 years ago today, Len Bias passed away, only two days after he was drafted by the Boston Celtics. Bias has now been gone for longer than he was here, which should be a reminder to us all about how quickly time flies.


As someone who grew up in the post-Bias era, I don't have any memories or thoughts that I can share that would add anything to what's already been said about his outstanding career and his tragic death. Hopefully this video can remind us of Bias' talent and the lessons that his death taught us.
