Yes, and he hasn’t been healthy for several years. Huge impact on the sport.

Δ RIP

Saw Tex back at the SPL in Long Beach, he generously took time to autograph items for everyone who went up to him. Noticed he'll put a small triangle next to his name. Sure missed his presence on the sidelines in the last few years with Kobe/Pau/Phil.
