RIP
my prayers are with his family.

My brother worked at his restaraunt here in portland he was there everyday hanging out talking to everyone. Seemed like a nice guy. He has always been very active with the blazers which is real nice that whole team in his era have always been active except for buck williams.

Nice pic's Chalkmaze -

Duckworth was like so few big men in the NBA -
Wes Unseld , Bob Lanier , Willis Reed prototypes.
They had to get up and down the floor with the quicker leaner bigs, and then challenge hook shots and jumpers , besides put backs.
Duckworth had a real smooth looking jumper and as the photo showed and he showed Kareem he had a hook also.
(It still amazes me how no one really has that type of hook shot anymore)
AS stated before , Duckworth had weight issues while playing , and obviously he didn't control it after retirement.
Quite a shock - RIP
Thanks for the memories big guy !!

==========
Small note - Few could challenge Kareem's hook shot , but see the perfect position Kareem has defending in that pic. Those hook shots were seldom if ever blocked and I would like to think that pic captured Duck making it.

I found a KD photo gallery a week ago but can't find it again, I think the site took the gallery down. This is the latest pic I have.



That's Cliff, Kersey, Clyde, and Duck. RIP

RIP

He was a solid player on those Finals Blazers teams.
I had heard he took alot of heat for the Blazers fall in the 1990 Finals… Sad to hear him gone at a such a young age.

They might be the most talented team that never won it:

Porter (18 pts/9 ast)
Kersey (16 pts/8 reb)
Williams (13 pts/10 reb)
Drexler (25/7/6)
Robinson (12 pts/5 reb in 24 mpg; a 20 ppg player for many seasons when given starter's minutes)
Ainge (15 pts/6 ast)
Duckworth (15 pts/7 reb)

They even had Petrovic in 1990 iirc.

Very sad. 44 is way to young to die. He looked like he must have weighted 500+ pounds in recent years, that is an excellent way to get your heart attacked, which is what happened to Duckworth, sadly. RIP.
