Bobby 'Slick' Leonard, 88, Pacers Hall of Fame coach, dies

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Bobby "Slick" Leonard was selected as the ABA's greatest coach. Hall of Fame player George McGinnis considered him a genius.

On Tuesday, the Indiana Pacers announced that the man who led them to three ABA championships during a Hall of Fame coaching career and was selected a 1963 NBA All-Star had died. No details about the 88-year-old Leonard were provided but he had been in failing health in recent years.

"He was the greatest," McGinnis said in March. "He loved all of his guys and, yes, he had his days. If you got on the wrong side of him, it wasn't going to be a good deal for you."
