Hall  of Fame  player and  coach Bill  Sharman died  Friday. He  was 87 years old. 

Sharman  impacted both  of the  NBA’s signature  franchises, as a player with  the Boston  Celtics and as a  coach with the Los Angeles Lakers. 

Sharman starred  as a  player with  the  Celtics from  1951-61. He  was an  eight-time All-Star  and  won four  NBA  titles with Celtics after playing  his  first season in 1950-51 with Washington.

Elected  to the Hall of Fame as a player in 1976, Sharman  was also  inducted as a  coach in 2004.  John Wooden and Lenny Wilkens  are the  only others to be honored in both categories. (Metro Networks, Inc.)
