"LSU basketball great, Athletic Director, Converse salesman, longtime television analyst and National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame member Joe Dean died early Sunday in Baton Rouge at 83.

Few men have influenced the game of basketball as diversely as Dean. Born April 26, 1930, the New Albany, Ind., native was a two-time All-SEC and three-time All-SEC Tournament Team member at LSU from 1949-52, and was drafted by the Indianapolis Olympians in 1952. He was an alternate on the 1956 U.S. Olympic team and played on the first U.S. team to tour Russia. Dean was named to LSU Basketball's All-Century Team in 2009.

In the summer of 2007, Dean was named the 18th most influential person in the history of the SEC by the Birmingham News. He was also chosen as one of the top voices in the history of the conference, placing seventh."

"STRANG MUSIC" !!!
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

-- Derrick Thomas
