A 10-time All-Star, Greer played all of his 15-year career with the Sixers, formerly the Syracuse Nationals, who drafted him with the 13th pick of the 1958 draft.

During the Sixers’ 1966-67 title run, Greer averaged a team-high 27.7 points over 15 playoff games and helped Philadelphia dethrone the reigning eight-year champion Boston Celtics.

Greer, who scored more than 20,000 points in his career, was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1982.

Rest in peace.

Linda Brown, who as a little girl was at the center of the Brown v. Board of Education case that ended segregation in American schools, has died, a funeral home spokesman said.

Brown, 75, died Sunday afternoon in Topeka, Kansas, the spokesman said.
Brown was 9 years old in 1951 when her father, Oliver Brown, tried to enroll her at Sumner Elementary School, then an all-white school near her Topeka home. When the school blocked her enrollment her father sued the Topeka Board of Education. Four similar cases were combined with Brown’s complaint and presented to the Supreme Court as Oliver L. Brown et al v. Board of Education of Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas, et al.
While her name will forever be a part of American civil rights history, her contributions to the community after the case are part of her legacy, too, longtime friend Carolyn Campbell said.
