Jerome Kersey, whose relentless and fearless style of play made him one of the most beloved Trail Blazers players, died unexpectedly Wednesday at Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center in Tualatin. He was 52. Kersey played 11 of his 17 NBA seasons in Portland, the starting small forward on some of the most celebrated Blazers teams. While Clyde Drexler provided the flair, and Terry Porter the big shots, it was Kersey who often created those opportunities by diving on the floor, or fighting for a rebound. And when it came time for him to be in the open court, his speed, size and leaping ability made him one of the more powerful dunkers in franchise history.

Clyde Drexler is a married man … again … TMZ Sports has learned. We know … the NBA Hall of Famer officially tied the knot to his girlfriend Tonya during a ceremony in Texas in early March. As TMZ Sports previously reported, 51-year-old Clyde met Tonya a couple of years ago through his old NBA pal Dominique Wilkins … and they filed for a marriage license in Texas back in February.

NBA All-Stars Paul George of the Indiana Pacers, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers and John Wall of the Washington Wizards headline the list of dunkers in the 2014 Sprite Slam Dunk (#SpriteSlam), taking place during State Farm® All-Star Saturday Night (#StateFarmSaturday) at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on Saturday, Feb. 15. Harrison Barnes of the Golden State Warriors and Ben McLemore of the Sacramento Kings fill out the Western Conference teams, while reigning Sprite Slam Dunk champion Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors completes the East roster. This year’s event will feature the participants competing as a team — three players representing the Eastern Conference and three players representing the Western Conference — in an above-the-rim two-round format. In a significant first in the event’s history, the competition will tip off with a Freestyle Round where the dunkers for each conference will have 90 seconds to showcase as many dunks as they want. At the conclusion of the Freestyle Round, the panel of judges will then choose a winner by voting “East” or “West.” The winning conference will earn the advantage of deciding whether its dunkers will dunk first or second in the head-to-head battles that take place in the Battle Round.
