Very sad. RIP Luke! I thought he was doing better. I didn't hear about his relapse. At least he's out of pain now.Trail Blazers legend Maurice Lucas, the starting power forward known as “The Enforcer” on the franchise’s only NBA Championship team, died Sunday at the age of 58.
Lucas battled bladder cancer for the past two years. He was an assistant coach for the Blazers when he had surgery in April of 2009, then appeared to be recovering when he suffered a relapse that hospitalized him in November of 2009. He passed away Sunday evening in Portland with his family by his side.
