Former NBA player Darrall Imhoff died Friday of a heart attack in Bend, Oregon. He was 78.
 
A 12-year veteran of the NBA, Imhoff starred as a center for the University of California, where he led the Bears to a national championship in 1959 under coach Pete Newell. The 6-foot-10 Imhoff was also a member of the 1960 U.S. Olympic team, which won a gold medal in the Rome Olympics. The entire 1960 team was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
 
Imhoff was the third overall pick by the New York Knicks in the 1960 NBA draft.
 
In addition to the Knicks, Imhoff played for the Detroit Pistons, Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Cincinnati Royals (now the Sacramento Kings) and Portland Trail Blazers. He averaged 7.2 points and 7.6 rebounds per game in his career.
 
Imhoff retired after the 1971-72 season with the Trail Blazers. He later worked as a color commentator for the team.
 
 
R.I.P. Darrall Imhoff.

RIP


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Thought we may have traded him for Wilt but maybe not?

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!
