Legendary basketball analyst Dick Vitale has been declared free of cancer following months of chemotherapy treatments. In August, the 82-year-old Vitale announced he was undergoing operations to remove melanoma and shortly after revealed he had been diagnosed with lymphoma. 

The basketball Hall of Famer, who began broadcasting college basketball games more than four decades ago, missed the majority of the season after undergoing throat surgery. Vitale has previously said he hopes to be back for the 2022-23 season—watch him ring the bell at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. 

Separately, the full NBA postseason tipped off over the weekend, punctuated by a dramatic finish by the Boston Celtics in Game 1 against the Brooklyn Nets. See a full bracket here.
