And, though not as critical, Celtics fans still wonder what might have been had Bias lived to play on the parquet.
Says Ryan: “I will go to my grave saying there isn’t any doubt in my mind that, as good as the Lakers were in ’87, if the Celtics had Bias. . . . I mean, they took them to six games without Bias! With McHale’s broken foot and the battered guys and all the minutes they were playing and they didn’t have any extra oomph and the bench consisted of guys like Darren Daye and Fred Roberts. Are you shittin’ me? If they had Len Bias? C’mon. It would’ve changed everything.”
