Joe Dean passed away November 7th in Louisiana at the age of 83.  For you old timers he played basketball for LSU and was elected to the National Basketball Hall of Fame in 2012.  He was a basketball legend at LSU in his heyday but is overshadowed by people like Pete Maravich and others.  He made quite a splash as a color analyst for both radio and TV broadcasts of bayou basketball collegiate games.  He had one of those melodious voices that just fit in.  You did not expect that kind of voice to come out of that large a man.  Everyone remembers his use of “string music” to describe a long jump shot that just rippled the nets.  It was always fun to hear his voice and listen to his home spun humor when ESPN started broadcasting games from all over the United States.  Color guys are supposed to just add to the game and not take over the game.  Joe was an expert on this.  He will be missed by the basketball public especially in SEC country.
