RIP to Hall of Famer Wes Unseld, who passed away at the age of 74. Unseld was a legend at Louisville and in the NBA, and one of the greatest rebounders and outlet passers of all-time. Toughness personified.

Super Sky Point to Wes Unseld, who played center at 6’7” in an era full of great big men and averaged 14 rebounds a game for his *career* despite facing a height disadvantage every night. The king of the outlet pass. #RIP
