Holcomb Statement on Bobby “Slick” Leonard

INDIANAPOLIS — Governor Eric J. Holcomb offered the following statement regarding the passing of Bobby “Slick” Leonard.

“Slick Leonard is an Indiana icon. He was the embodiment of basketball with his wide-ranging career starting with his days as a high school player in Terre Haute, going on to Indiana University to win a college national championship, and then his career with the NBA as a player, coach, broadcaster, and savior of the Indiana Pacers. His presence in the arena and in our state will be deeply missed. You can’t find anyone who doesn’t love Slick.”
