Chances are that even if you’ve only got a passing interest in NFL or basketball then you would know who Kevin Cadle is, because he literally appeared on every single UK show regarding either of those two events in the past 20 years until he retired in 2016.

Cadle was a legendary presenter – and also the most successful basketball coach in UK history – and so it’s with great sadness that we bring you the news that he died suddenly this morning. There aren’t any other details about his passing released just yet, other than the fact that it’s been confirmed and several tributes have been rolling in:
Shocked and beyond devastated that my long-time colleague, mentor and friend is gone too soon. Will miss the great Kevin Cadle. RIP 'ma man' pic.twitter.com/za9sfEIHbj

There’s not really much else to say about it really is there? RIP to a guy who helped establish American sports in this country probably more than anyone else in history. Here’s a video of his life story that features a really weird voiceover:
Really strange right, but aside from the production values it’s still fascinating to know all that stuff about him. I never even knew he was a basketball coach for example, but I suppose I only have a passing interest in that sport like I commented earlier. You learn something new every day. RIP to one of the greats though, seriously.
