Remember Reggie: The Life and Death of Reggie Lewis | Comcast SportsNet -
Reggie Lewis lived an exceptional life in the limelight as a basketball phenom, from his younger days in Baltimore, MD to his exemplary college career which put Northeastern University on the basketball map, to his drafting by the Boston Celtics and receiving of the captain’s torch from Larry Bird – no doubt that Reggie’s was a life of talent and promise. In July of 1993, as the young star was quickly becoming the face of the Celtics franchise, Reggie collapsed and died of heart failure while practicing at Brandeis University. For Boston sports fans, Reggie was a touchstone figure in the city’s sports history, but the full story of his life and untimely death on the court has never been told with great depth – UNTIL NOW.

This July, Comcast SportsNet will debut a 1-hour documentary recounting the life of Reggie Lewis on the 20th anniversary of his death. The program will feature in-depth interviews with some of the most important and iconic people in Reggie’s life – family, friends, teammates, coaches, colleagues, doctors, and more.

Starting the story back in Baltimore where Reggie’s basketball days began and journeying through time to that unforgettable day on July 29th, 1993, Comcast SportsNet will tell the story that has never been fully told in this exclusive documentary "REMEMBER REGGIE: The Reggie Lewis Story" -- debuting July 2013 ONLY on Comcast SportsNet.
