Jazz voice Hot Rod Hundley passes away at the age of 80

A great man has passed today.


Today is a sad day for all Utah Jazz fans, and basketball fans. Longtime voice of the Jazz, and former #1 overall NBA Draft pick, Hot Rod Hundley has passed away. He was 80 years young, and was not in the best of health these last few seasons. He was the voice for generations of kids who grew up loving the Jazz. His influence upon not just writers today, but also his peers, is without equal. He will be missed. but more than that, he will be celebrated.


Thank you Hot Rod. May you rest in peace.

EDIT: Jazz will honor Hot Rod for the rest of this season:
