Twenty years ago this week, Reggie Lewis’ rise to stardom was cut short by tragedy. Take a look back at his remarkable career on csnne.com/reggie and watch the documentary “Remember Reggie” on @csnne Friday at 8pm. #Reggie35 #tbt #celtics :: http://bit.ly/17lNoUn
Reggie Lewis was one one of six players who, from 1988-93, posted at least 7,500 points, 1,500 rebounds, 1,000 assists and 500 steals. The other five — Charles Barkley, Clyde Drexler, Michael Jordan, Karl Malone and Chris Mullin — are all Hall of Famers. (via)
When Reggie first came into the league, he really didn’t know how to play the game. He shot the ball. That was about it. But he was a worker. He spent a lot of time improving his game. He loved it. You could always tell that.
Reggie was hard to stop. He kept you off balance all the time. There were a few guys in the league I hated to guard because you didn’t know what they were thinking. I’m glad Reggie was my teammate, because he was one of them.
He was on his way. He was a gamer. He just came to play. That was it."
