53-year-old Cliff Robinson, the former player from Buffalo, New York is no more. Nicknamed “Uncle Cliffy”, he was known for his headband, played 18 seasons of the NBA, won the 1993 sixth man of the year award and earned the All-Star title. He was the one who helped the Trail Blazers lead to two NBA Finals. The NBA All-Star who played with the Portland Trail Blazers, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, New Jersey Nets and Phoenix Suns left the world on Saturday.
Though the cause of Robinson’s death is still unknown to the people, but former Huskies Coach Jim Calhoun has revealed that he had suffered stroke 2.5 years ago and was in coma since last week. The news of his demise was shared using twitter by the University of Connecticut Men’s Basketball Team.
