Quintin Dailey, a brilliant but troubled basketball player who starred at the University of San Francisco, was a first-round draft pick of the Chicago Bulls in 1982 and had a stint with the Clippers in the late '80s, died Monday in Las Vegas. He was 49. Dailey died of hypertensive cardiovascular disease, according to the Clark County coroner's office.

It would be nice after all this time if something could have been worked out to bring Bill Russell back into the fold at the University of San Francisco. It would be nice if grown men would act like grown men. But nearly 50 years have passed since the summer of 1957, when the spindly center, who led San Francisco to consecutive NCAA basketball championships in 1955 and 1956, returned to campus to complete work on his degree.

Back then those summers in and around Philadelphia were mostly about growing up and being together. "We'd hang out like any cousins would," Cox said. "We did a little bit of everything from baseball and swimming to playing basketball. We'd go to the movies." Basketball was different.
