Trail Blazers to honor Dr. Jack Ramsay with plaid patch on jerseys

Dr. Jack Ramsay patch

Trail Blazers to wear custom “Dr. Jack” jersey patches for the remainder of the playoffs.

— Trail Blazers PR (@TrailBlazersPR) April 30, 2014

Last weekend the NBA lost one of its coaching legends, not to mention once of the nicest guys around the game, Hall of Famer Dr. Jack Ramsay passed away at age 89. (It’s one of the things sadly overshadowed by the Donald Sterling fiasco.)

Ramsay is best remembered as the plaid-jacket wearing coach of who led Bill Walton and the 1977 Portland team to the NBA championship.

In his honor, for the rest of the playoffs the Blazers will wear that smart little plaid patch for Dr. Jack. Well done Portland.
