I don’t care for basketball, but it’s interesting to note the coincidences with the death of K.C Jones. His basketball jersey was number 25, he was also born on the 25th and died on the 25th as well. We know that Kobe Bryant was sacrificed, since there was so many weird things which happened before, during and after his death. I just decided to put this into a small post since I thought it was interesting..
Boston Celtics legend and basketball Hall of Famer K.C. Jones has died, the team announced on Christmas. He was 88.
The Celtics said Jones’ family confirmed Friday that he died at an assistant living facility in Connecticut, where he had been receiving care for Alzheimer’s disease for the past several years.
Jones was a 12-time NBA champion as a player and coach, two-time NCAA champion, and an Olympic gold medalist.
“The Celtics family mourns his loss, as we celebrate his remarkable career and life,” the Celtics said in a statement on Jones’ passing.
Jones is one of only seven players in history to achieve basketball’s “Triple Crown” – winning an NCAA Championship, an NBA Championship and an Olympic Gold Medal. The other six are Bill Russell, Clyde Lovellette, Jerry Lucas, Quinn Buckner, Earvin “Magic “Johnson and Michael Jordan.
A point guard who excelled on defense, Jones joined with Russell to lead San Francisco to back-to-back NCAA championships in 1955-56. The two also played on the U.S. team that won the Olympic gold medal at the 1956 Games in Melbourne. They later reunited in Boston.
