Detroit Shock owner dies

Detroit Shock owner Bill Davidson died today. He was 86. Owner of both pro basketball teams, the organization plans to make a formal statement on Saturday.
Davidson, who also owned the Tampa Bay Lightning, was visible with all the franchises, even though he didn’t like the limelight. He made sure he changed the name of the street outside the Palace of Auburn Hills each time they won titles.
Inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame last season, his services are scheduled for Tuesday and Davidson’s cause of death is unknown.
