RIP Cliff Robinson. The Portland Trail Blazers from 1989 to 1992 were one of the best teams to never win a championship. It’s hard to believe Cliff, Jerome Kersey and Kevin Duckworth are gone. pic.twitter.com/JVlf9yLIXr

It’s not what Cliff Robinson did for UConn. It’s what he did for Connecticut.
I was 14 when he led UConn to the NIT title. As he grew the profile of the program, he grew the pride people had in their state. He showed how college sports can be a force for tremendous good. https://t.co/7WnJPLdIUa

Oh man, I was a big Cliff Robinson fan as a kid. I liked him because he went to UCONN, but even more so because he was a fun-to-watch NBA player that felt perpetually underrated. And of course, the headband …
Way too young … https://t.co/9tenOWged1

Surely one is promised tomorrow and that no one knows how and when one shall depart from this cruel world. Repent and believe in true gospel of Jesus Christ work on cross. Death is not the end for those who dies in Christ.
