Leonard Kevin Bias (November 18, 1963 – June 19, 1986) was a first-team All-American college basketball forward at the University of Maryland.
Two days after being selected by the Boston Celtics as the second overall pick in the 1986 NBA draft, Bias died from cardiac arrhythmia induced by a cocaine overdose.
The University of Maryland is alive with activity year-round.
Bias's Maryland teammates Terry Long and David Gregg were charged with possession of cocaine and obstruction of justice.
Bias impressed basketball fans with his amazing leaping ability, his physical stature and his ability to create plays, and was considered one of the most dynamic players in the nation.
By his senior year, scouts from various National Basketball Association teams viewed Bias as the most complete forward in the class of 1986.
Those speaking at the service included Red Auerbach, who said he had planned for three years to draft Bias for the Celtics.
On June 30, 1986, the Celtics honored Bias with their own memorial service, giving his never-used #30 Celtics jersey to his mother, Lonise.
