Best Answer

Len Boas died of Cocaine overdose.

Len Bias (not Boas) was number #2 overall pick in the NBA draft and was ACC player of the year, would have likely been a hall of famer (will never know now?) but was a flat out phenom! Celtics would have been unstoppable with him and their hall of fame roster! His death created many new laws on drugs (most too extreme) but his death is definatley reconanized for waking up the country on drug use and how dangerous it was. It has been said it was his first time he ever used, that is up for debate, but autopsy said cocaine was very pure, way to strong for most people!
