Dr. Jack Ramsay memorialized in doughnut form

Christian Petersen

Rest in peace, Dr. Jack.

On Monday, the world bid farewell to a basketball legend, Dr. Jack Ramsay. Ramsay coached the Portland Trail Blazers to the only championship in franchise history in 1977, and he continued his Hall of Fame career as an analyst, broadcaster and writer. Amid an immediate avalanche of tributes, Portland landmark Voodoo Doughnut honored Ramsay its own way:

Two things:

1. I hope Terry Stotts busts out the plaid again for the next Portland game.

2. On the off chance I die having lived an honorable life, I'd like my name and visage drawn out with mushrooms on a pizza. Thank you.

3. Don't eat it.

If you haven't read it, I highly recommend The Breaks of the Game for a sense of how powerful Ramsay was as a coach, and this piece by his son is a fantastic reflection on who he was as a person. Rest in peace, Dr. Jack.
