    Post Chris Ford has died at the age of 74 after 10 seasons as a player and another decade as a head coach


    Chris Ford - the man credited with scoring the first NBA 3-pointer in league history - has died at 74. The official cause of death is heart failure, according to National Sportswriters Hall of Famer Dick Weiss, while other reports claim Ford suffered a heart attack earlier this month.

    'Chris was beloved by his family, friends, and teammates,' his family said in a statement. 'He had a great love for his family, the city of Boston, the fans, and the entire Celtics family.

    'He always showed humility and respect for all those that were fortunate enough to be a part of his life.'

    Ford's decorated career included three titles with the Boston Celtics - one as a player and another two as an assistant coach under KC Jones. He also served as a head coach for 10 NBA seasons.
