Former Spurs GM Bob Bass hospitalized after stroke

Former Spurs general manager and coach Bob Bass has been hospitalized in San Antonio after suffering a stroke, his wife Pat said Wednesday.

"He wants to come home," Pat Bass said. "No matter what happens to his brain and his mind, he still thinks he's the general manager of all of us...He's a tough little dude."
Bass, 89, spent 20 seasons with the Spurs, mainly as GM, before joining the Charlotte Hornets in 1995. He was named the 1989-90 NBA Executive of the Year for moves he made that helped the Spurs improve from 21 wins the previous season to 56.
Bass is credited with moving George Gervin from forward to guard, a decision that paved the way for the 6-foot-7 Iceman to win four scoring titles. It also ushered in the era of the big guard, including the Lakers' Magic Johnson.

Bass won the NBA Executive of the Year Award again in 1997 with the Hornets. He retired in 2004 after 36 years in pro basketball, including all or parts of 10 seasons as a head coach with a 311-300 record.
