Dennis Johnson dead

4 posts in this topic

I never gave him much credit as a player because he had such a great team with Boston, but Sports Guy sure put out a nice article about him on Page2 at ESPN. Pretty sad though. Sounds like it must have been a massive heart attack.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Dennis Johnson died Thursday after collapsing at the end of his developmental team's practice. He was 52.

Johnson, coach of the Austin Toros, was unconscious and in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived at Austin Convention Center, said Warren Hassinger, spokesman for Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate him for 23 minutes before he was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead, Hassinger added. Mayra Freeman, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner's office, said there will be an autopsy.

A very sad loss for the NBA. The guy was a living example of class.

aaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnddddd, there's a steal by bird! ahead to dj! he lays it up and in!

dennis johnson will always have his place in nba lore thanks to larry legend and johnny most.

i heard larry talking about dj on the dan patrick show. bird said he was so glad when they traded for him cause dj would kill them when he was with the sonics. the stories bird told gave me more appreciation for dj as a player and basketball scholar.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
