MIAMI -- Jack Ramsay served his country in World War II, coached Portland to the NBA title, was enshrined in the basketball Hall of Fame and became one of the games most respected and revered broadcasters. His life was, by any measure, complete. "Our father led the greatest life that one could lead," the Ramsay family said in a statement released Monday, hours after the man that just about everyone in basketball called "Dr. Jack" died in Naples, Fla., at the age of 89. No cause of death was announced, but Ramsay had fought several forms of cancer for many years and more recently was diagnosed with a marrow syndrome. Ramsay ended his broadcasting career with ESPN last year because of health problems and word came last week that he had been placed into hospice care. "From his coaching tenure to his broadcast work, Dr. Jack left an indelible mark on every facet of our game and on every person he came in contact with, including me," NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said. Added Miami Heat president Pat Riley, who was close to Ramsay for many years: "This is a very sad day for basketball, not just professional basketball, but the entire basketball world. The game has lost a giant." Ramsay coached in the NBA for parts of 21 seasons before embarking on a second career as an NBA analyst, eventually working for ESPN. He was diagnosed with melanoma in 2004 and later battled growths and tumors that spread to his legs, lungs and brain, as well as prostate cancer. Through it all, his affinity for fitness never wavered. Ramsay, who competed in at least 20 triathlons during his life, worked out regularly into his 80s, even as he battled the various forms of cancer. He often spoke of his love of swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Even in his final year as a broadcaster, it wasnt uncommon for friends to marvel at how well he was moving about. "Jack was a great man," Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird said, "and I dont use that term lightly." Ramsay also spent several years late in his life caring for his wife, Jean, who was diagnosed in 2001 with Alzheimers disease. She died in 2010. "He was that rarest of men with a unique style that was inspirational and motivational about basketball and life itself," said Paul Allen, who owns the Trail Blazers. Ramsay enjoyed enormous popularity within the league. To commemorate his 89th birthday this year, Portland coach Terry Stotts wore a loud checkered jacket and open-collared shirt for a Blazers game -- a nod to Ramsays style of dress when he coached the club. "Jacks life is a beacon which guides us all," Bill Walton, who was on Ramsays 1977 title team in Portland, told USA Today in 2007. "He is our moral compass, our spiritual inspiration. He represents the conquest of substance over hype. He is a true saint of circumstance." John T. Ramsay was born Feb. 21, 1925, in Philadelphia and enrolled at Saint Josephs in 1942, eventually becoming captain of the basketball team for his senior season. He earned a doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania in 1949, which explains the "Dr. Jack" moniker. Ramsays began coaching Saint Josephs in 1955. He was wildly successful there, going 234-72 and taking the Hawks to the NCAA tournament seven times and the Final Four in 1961. "Great man," Orlando Magic guard Jameer Nelson, who played at Saint Josephs a generation after Ramsay departed, wrote on Twitter. "The Greatest Hawk ever." To Ramsay, the most significant part of the Saint Josephs years was this: "I met my wife there," he said. He was a founding father of sorts for the growth of the Big 5, the annual Philadelphia basketball series involving Saint Josephs, La Salle, Penn, Villanova and Temple. "The Big 5 was clearly the biggest thing any of those schools were involved in at that point," Ramsay said in a 2004 interview. Ramsay became coach of the Philadelphia 76ers in 1968, joined the Buffalo Braves in 1972 and brought his craft to Portland in 1976. With a team featuring Walton, Lionel Hollins and Maurice Lucas, he delivered an NBA championship in his first season, beating the 76ers in six games for the title. "It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one that I will cherish forever," Ramsay said in 1997. Indeed, that was his lone NBA title. Walton got hurt the next year, crippling Portlands chances of getting back to championship form during that era. Ramsay coached the Blazers for nine more seasons without another trip to the Finals. He spent the final three years of his NBA coaching career in Indiana, resigning from the Pacers in 1988 after the team started 0-7. Ramsay was 864-783 in his NBA career and in 1996 was honoured as one of the leagues all-time top 10 coaches. And when Micky Arison bought the Heat, the first person he turned to was Ramsay, who wound up long being considered part of the franchises family and even accompanied them to the White House to celebrate winning an NBA title. "He will be sorely missed by us all," Arison said. When he left the Pacers, Ramsay carefully did not use the word "retire," and began working as a television analyst on 76ers games. Eventually, he worked on Heat television broadcasts for eight seasons before moving full time to ESPN for radio and TV commentating before the 2000-01 season. "So grateful that his path crossed ours," his former Heat broadcast partner Eric Reid wrote on Twitter early Monday. "Hall of Fame coach and man." Ramsays funeral is Thursday.

AMIR JOHNSON (Raptors): I cant figure out what the issue or problem is, but based upon what Im seeing, hes not right. Brandon Morrow Jersey .com) - Nino Williams posted 18 points and seven rebounds, as Kansas State edged No.David Warner was in unstoppable form as he amassed his 12th Test century on day one of the fourth Test against India, says Mark Butcher. Warner struck 101 off 114 balls – his third ton of the series – as Australia ran up 348-2 after winning the toss, sharing a first-wicket stand of 200 with Chris Rogers (95).Skipper Steve Smith (82 not out) and Shane Watson (61no) then built on the platform at the SCG, where former team-mate Phillip Hughes was fatally injured six weeks ago. Australia captain Steve Smith comments on the plaque erected by Cricket Australia for Phillip Hughes at the Sydney Cricket Ground “India have not been able to do anything right, and Australia have pretty much not been able to do anything wrong,” said former England batsman Mark Butcher.“The pitch looks an absolute belter – there’s not a blade of grass on it. It was a great toss for Steve Smith to win. But having said that, you’d expect an international bowling attack – all be it one that is as inexperienced as India’s – to be able to bowl one or two (more) maidens than they’ve managed.“Warner had a little bit of a struggle to start with; there was a feeling perhaps that the emotion of the Test match being back at Sydney where his great mate passed away had got to him.“But once he got away he was just unstoppable. He’s scoring at almost a run-a-ball in Test match cricket and he’s making scoring hundreds look as though it’s the most simple thing in the world to do. 2015 is Sky Sports’ biggest every year of cricket.dddddddddddd Join us as we bring it to life! “It was inevitable that he was going to get to three figures. The celebration was emotional, as you’d expect, and it took an absolute beauty from the standout bowler for India, Ravi Ashwin, to get rid of him.”CompactRogers fell just four runs later when he dragged Mohammed Shami into his stumps – the fifth time he has made 50 in as many innings without going on to a century.Butcher said that, if anything, the 37-year-old struck the ball more crisply than his opening partner.“Where Warner is all about the high back-lift, late movements and audacity, Rogers is very much a compact, old-fashioned opener,” he said.“He has not made a century for quite some time now – not since the last Ashes – and it looked like he was going to break that particular duck having made five half-centuries already in the series.“He also made it look very simple indeed; if anything he was more consistent in terms of his ball-striking than Warner was, so it came as a bit of a shock when he finally made an error on the cusp of making that hundred.”PressureIndia could not make the most of having two new batsmen at the crease as Smith and Watson bedded in to make their own half-centuries.Watson enjoyed a reprieve late on in the day when Ashwin failed to grasp an edged chance off the bowling of Umesh Yadav, and Butcher said that miss could be just the break he needs.“Watson is under massive pressure,” he said. “He has been at No 3 for quite some time and his record has been going downhill rather than up over the last few years.“I felt for him a bit because I’ve been in the position myself where you are walking out to bat when everybody else is making it look very easy and you are having to scratch around.“But eventually he got himself going and made a pretty decent half-century and also has had a little bit of what he would say is rare luck to get away with not getting out in the final over of the day.”Watch day two of the fourth and final Test between Australia and India live on Sky Sports 2 from 11.30pm.
