Coach Chuck Daly Diagnosed With Cancer

They were more than a championship team.

They were a force.
They were attitude.
They were swagger.
The NBA change their rules to stop them.
They were The Bad Boys.
And Coach Chuck Daly was their leader.

Now Coach Daly has another challenge to face. Yesterday the world found out that the 78 year old is fighting pancreatic cancer, a battle his family learned learned about only 3 weeks earlier.

Daly brought NBA championships to Detroit in 1989 and 1990. He also led the original Dream Team to Olympic gold in 1992. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1994. His intelligence and heart concerning basketball have been on display for years. Now he and his family need us to display support through prayers.

God bless you and your family, Coach.
