Hal Greer Cause Of Death: How Did Hal Die?

Hal Greer Cause Of Death: How Did Hal Die?

Greer was inducted into the Marshall University Athletics Hall of Fame for his career in basketball and baseball in 1985.

Greer spent all 15 seasons of his pro basketball career with the organization, helping lead the 76ers to an NBA championship in 1967 with Wilt Chamberlain.

Facing the San Francisco Warriors, a team that had relocated from Philadelphia five years earlier, in the 1967 NBA Finals, the 76ers won in six games.

In a statement posted on the NBA's official website on Monday, the 76ers did not mention any specific cause of death, but noted that Greer died "after a brief illness" in his Arizona home on Saturday night, according to USA Today. During his time at Marshall, Greer solidified his place as one of the greatest representatives of the university and Marshall athletics, while also breaking boundaries.

Hello, my name is John Witiw, and you may remember me as a writer for Viral Pirate, Frontrunner Magazine, or even NTD Television, but now I'm here.

The West Virginia native was already an established player for the Syracuse Nationals when the franchise moved to Philadelphia and became the 76ers in 1963. He made 10 straight All-Star games (including in 1968, when he was named the game's most valuable player), and in 1996 was named one of the NBA's 50 greatest players.

We extend our deepest condolences and send our love, thoughts and prayers to the Greer family during this hard time.

He played each of his 15 National Basketball Association seasons with the franchise, and is their all time leader in several categories, including points (21,586), games played (1,122) and field goals (8,504).

Greer was the first player to have his jersey number retired by the club and to be honored with a statue on 76ers Legends Walk at its training complex.

The organization plans to honor Greer ahead of Game 2 of its first-round matchup against the Miami Heat later Monday.
