Remembering Hank Gathers

By Brad Hubbard | @bradhubbard

I am not a Keith Olberman fan but he did a great job with this. On a personal note, I can remember balling my eyes out when I heard the news. Hank Gathers was one of my favorite basketball players. I loved watching him and his Loyola Marymount teammates run up and down the court and score 120+ points a game.

If you haven’t seen ESPN’s 30 for 30 entitled ‘The Guru of Go’ I highly recommend it. It doesn’t focus on Gathers but on the coach Paul Westhead. It touches heavily on what happened to Gathers and to that team.

Rest in peace Mr Gathers. You are still greatly missed.
