RIP Phil Jasner

Word's been leaking out tonight that Phil Jasner has passed away tonight.

We joke about the Sixers a lot, however he was one of the few left in Philadelphia who took them seriously. A lifer not just for the Sixers but Philadelphia as well much like others local media legends such as Merrill Reese, Ray Didinger, Harry Kalas, Gene Hart, etc.

I heard, very sad to hear from afar. The guy knew the team well, and Dei Leynam's story between him and Collins on CSNPhilly is heartwarming. Hopefully something like this kicks the young Sixers in the pants, or Collins himself.

So sorry for Andy's loss. Phil was a wonderful human being, and an exceptional writer.

That was nice that the Flyers took a moment to acknowledge Phil. I know, the Sixers and Flyers are related, but they could have just as easily put a Santa Sacks ad there.

He was looking frail and sick, I hope he did not suffer too much down the stretch. I also hope he did not have to watch many Sixers games this season!

Jasner was an amazing writer and, by all accounts, an even more amazing individual. Warm guy who just breathed basketball and was really respected by those he covered. I hope the best for his son and the rest of his family going forward. Between him and Kalas a huge piece of Philadelphia sports has died out.

Thank God Bill Lyon is still around even if he is more or less retired. Here is his obit on Jasner in case anyone missed it:
