Legendary Philadephia 76ers guard Hal Greer passed away Saturday at the age of 81 after a brief illness, the team confirmed.

Greer spent his entire 15-year career with the 76ers and was a 10-time All-Star.

It was in Philadelphia where Hal Greer won his only NBA Championship, as the 76ers defeated the Bill Russell-led Boston Celtics in the 1966-67 Eastern Division Finals, before facing the San Francisco (now Golden State) Warriors in the NBA Finals.

According to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, which inducted Mr. Greer in 1982, he was the only player to jump shoot his free throws. During his time at Marshall, Greer solidified his place as one of the greatest representatives of the university and Marshall athletics, while also breaking boundaries. The Associated Press reports he was also the first to be honored with a sculpture on the 76ers Legends Walk at the team training complex in 2017.

We extend our deepest condolences and send our love, thoughts and prayers to the Greer family during this hard time. Greer was a Marshall legend, an NBA champion and a Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer. At this time, however, it is unknown if an official autopsy has clarified his official cause of death.
