Friday News:

While it doesn't directly tie to basketball, I still wanted to acknowledge the death of Rabbi Jim Diamond, who was killed yesterday in a bizarre accident.

I knew Rabbi Diamond as a fellow WPRB DJ, through his friendship with my parents and from interviewing him about the late Marvin Bressler two years ago.

(He described Marvin perfectly with the line "He was a profound and responsible skeptic.")

Diamond was also Professor Bressler's choice to lead his funeral ceremony and it was Diamond who permitted the beautiful gesture of Bressler being buried with a basketball to occur.

Rabbi Diamond was a friend to many at Princeton and a kind, funny man. My condolences.

A funeral is scheduled for Sunday at 1:00 pm ET at the Jewish Center in Princeton.

An update since I published: The driver who caused this collision has been charged with "death by auto."

Jon, Thanks for your post about Rabbi Diamond. He was a good friend who welcomed us warmly to Princeton and was a true mensch. He will be missed.
