Sweet Dreams Kevin Duckworth
The big "00" died two days ago. Kevin Duckworth, the gentle 7-foot center for the Portland Trailblazers from 1986 -1993 was one of my favorite sports stars. He helped take the Blazers to the Western Conference Championships in 1990 and 1992 in what many consider to be some of thier most glorious seasons. Together with Clyde Drexler, Jerome Kersey, Terry Porter, Buck Williams and Cliff Robertson Kevin Duckworth rounded out a legendary team.
I remember my dear friend Robert loved him so much he said he'd name his unborn child "Kevin Duckworth Christie" if it was a boy OR a girl.
