Former Portland Trail Blazers center Kevin Duckworth, a member of the Blazers' Western Conference championship teams in 1990 and 1992, passed away yesterday at the age of 44 while on a trip to the Oregon coast to host a free basketball clinic.

Duckworth represented the Blazers franchise in the NBA All-Star Game in 1989 and 1991, and apart from his career as a Blazer, also played for the Spurs, Bullets, Bucks and Clippers. He retired from the NBA in 1997.

His cause of death has yet to be determined.

The fans used to ride that guy hard. I was really pretty young in his heyday, but I remember feeling kind of bad for the way he was treated. Now I look back on it and realize it's no different than how I treat Curry or Randolph.

I would have figured him to be a bit older now, but 44 is way to young regardless.

Our local paper has an online site. The paper comes out weekly, published on Weds.

It was surprising to me to see the story about the clinic posted right above the story about his death. He was heavliy quoted in the clinic story.

I'm pretty sure this is the first year the NBA has kept these stats officially. +/- is the difference in points scored by the team when a player is on the floor.
