On the 26-year anniversary of Len Bias' death, a D.C.-based clothing company has put its own spin on the life of the Maryland basketball legend.
DEFY Clothing has shirts available on its website that use the moniker “Lensanity” in honor of the former Terp who died from a cocaine overdose two days after he was the No. 2 overall selection by the Boston Celtics in the 1986 NBA Draft.
The shirts also display the phrase, “The original Lensanity,” a play off the moniker “Linsanity” that was coined for New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin last season.
Every one of the three shirts from the DEFY Clothing plays off a different aspect of Bias’ life — the state flag of Maryland, the Celtics shamrock logo and the Maryland Terrapin are all featured.
