BOSTON, MA (WTVB) - Basketball Hall of Fame player and coach Bill Sharman died Friday. He was 87 years old. Sharman impacted both of the NBA's signature franchises, as a player with the Boston Celtics and as a coach with the Los Angeles Lakers. Sharman starred as a player with the Celtics from 1951-61. He was an eight-time All-Star and won four NBA titles with Boston.
