Bob Lanier, a historic NBA center, has died this Tuesday at the age of 73, as announced by the league in a statement. Bladder cancer has been the cause of death for the former Bucks and Pistons player, whose in-the-paint clashes with Kareem Abdul Jabbar were legendary during the 1970s.

“Bob Lanier was a Hall of Fame player and one of the most talented centers in NBA history, but his impact on the league went beyond what he did on the court. For more than 30 years Bob He was our global ambassador and a special assistant to David Stern and later to me, traveling around the world to teach the values ​​​​of the sport and make a positive impact on youth,” Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement.

Lanier, born in Buffalo (New York) in 1948, was number one in the NBA draft in 1970, chosen by the Detroit Pistons, where he would play the following decade. That same year he had led St. Bonaventure University to the NCAA Final Four.

With his 211 centimeters, he has played 14 seasons in the NBA from 1980 to 1984 he played for the Milwaukee Bucks, with averages of 20.1 points, 10.1 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks. Lanier was an eight-time All-Star and in 1971 he was MVP. His number 16 jersey is retired on both the Pistons and Bucks.

“It was a labor of love for Bob, one of the kindest and most genuine people I have ever met. His enormous influence on the NBA was also seen in his time as president of the NBPA (Players Association) where he was instrumental in helping the negotiation of a collective bargaining agreement that changed all this,” Silver continued in his statement.

After his retirement, the left-hander tried his luck as a coach, first as an assistant for the Golden State Warriors and even as head coach after the departure of Don Nelson, in 1995 (only 27 games). In 1978 he received the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for his service to the community.
