NBA Holds Moment Of Silence For Chadwick Boseman, Cliff Robinson, Lute Olson

The NBA honored the trio with a moment of silence Saturday


Saturday was a sad day in the NBA world.

Former Portland Trail Blazers star and UConn Men’s basketball great Cliff Robinson, legendary University of Arizona head coach Lute Olson and actor/activist Chadwick Boseman all passed away within the last 48 hours. And while the three didn’t necessarily cross paths often, they did possess one similar characteristic: Their passion for creating positive change.

So, the league held a special moment of silence for the trio before Saturday’s Game 5 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Orlando Magic.

Check it out (and grab some tissues):

We’re not crying. You’re crying.
