    Earl Lloyd was the first black player in the NBA and he passed away yesterday at the age of 86. He paved the way for those that followed him and inspiring countless people.

    His accomplishments include
    First black player in the NBA - 1950
    First black player with a championship - 1955 (shared with Jim Tucker)
    And he was inducted into the hall of fame in 2003

    Rest in peace.
