On December 20, 1976, Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago died of a massive heart attack on Chicago's near north side. Do You Know how our game of basketball is related to his death?
Less than an hour before his passing, Mayor Daley was at a dedication of a new Chicago Park District field house. During that ceremony, Mr. Daley shot an old fashioned 2-handed set shot and swished it!
