NBA Coach Flip Saunders, 60, Dies from Hodgkin's

Minnesota Timberwolves head coach and team president Flip Saunders passed away this weekend from complications from Hodgkin's lymphoma. He had been diagnosed in the spring but his diagnosis was kept private until the summer, when the team issued a press release about his condition.

ESPN put together a wonderful video tribute to Saunders and his contributions to the sport of basketball:

He is survived by his wife and four children, one of whom is an assistant coach for the Timberwolves.
