There were many different stories that came out following Reggie Lewis' death. There were allegations of drug use, which could have tarnished his reputation as a Boston Celtic.

Former teammates and other acquaintances said Lewis bought drugs and was a user. However, former Celtics owner Paul Gaston was furious with the allegations.

"It just burns in the back of people's minds, when a black athlete dies, people do not believe that it's not either guns or drugs," Gaston said.

"Remember Reggie," a 90-minute special that first aired at 8 p.m. Sunday on CSNNE, took a look at the life of former Boston Celtic Reggie Lewis 20 years after his death.
