Remembering Reggie Lewis, 20 Years Later

 

July 27th, 1993 is a date that will always be remembered somberly in Celtics history. It was 20 years ago today that Reggie Lewis tragically passed away after collapsing while playing pickup basketball at Brandeis University. Reggie’s legacy still lives on in Boston, as his memory is forever cherished both in the rafters at the Garden, as well as at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston.

Here are a few memories of Reggie to help remind you of the star, both on and off the floor we lost far too soon. CSN will also be broadcasting special documentary tribute to Lewis, which airs tomorrow night on CSNNE at 8pm. Some other required reading includes Jackie MacMullan’s rememberance of the star which features plenty of powerful commentary from the likes of Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and others on Reggie’s impact:

    I had the privilege of watching Reggie's play in the Celts uniform. He was so underrated because he wasn't vocal. I can only imagine how great the Celts would have been had he and Len Bias taken over the reign after the Bird/ McHale/ Parish era. #35 definitely deserve to be in the rafters with all the other greats.

    Is there any way to watch the documentary if I'm not in the Boston area? Please let me know, Thanks

    Reggie near unstoppable against Reggie Miller and Chuck Person in the playoff vs those very good Indiana teams. Quick enough to take it to the rack, yet could stop on a dime and bury the 18 footer. There is no doubt the Celts franchise would have another banner up if Bias and Lewis did not pass. They would have prolonged the careers of the original big 3. Reggie was one of the few players (all due respect Craig Ehlo) that gave Michael Jordan fits…. Bias and Lewis would have made the 90s a little different for the Celtics. Can you imagine the Pippen/Jordan vs Bias/Lewis matcups. OK, maye a little dreaming there but who knows?

    I'm a bit too young to remember Lewis (I'm 27), and admittedly I know less about this incident than I should if I want to comment on it, but I just want to say it's always sad to see such a young man pass away. I'm currently the same age as Lewis was when He passed, and I am not anywhere close to being ready for my passing. I do know that Lewis gave a lot to the Celtics organization. for this, he will always be remembered fondly. In the grand scheme of things, sports fans don't really mean much, but I think we all have to do what we can to show respects to a true tragedy. A moment like this makes me all the more glad that we still have guys like Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox alive and well with us today. Sure, we all might gripe when these guys miss a rotation or something, but I'd rather be mourning the loss of two points than the loss of one of our beloved Celtics.
