Former Cleveland Cavaliers Coach Paul Silas died of cardiac arrest, according to his daughter on Sunday. Paul was a 3x NBA Champion, twice with the Celtics in 1974 and 1976 and once with the now defunct Seattle Supersonics in 1979. After retiring from playing in the NBA in 1980, Silas went on to coach the San Diego Clippers, Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets, and the Charlotte Bobcats as well as his stint with the Cavaliers.
