Such a shame, particularly with such a young family man.

That meme/gif of him and his daughter was so homely too. Shame.

I saw him play in Boston against a decent C's team (which included Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker) back in 2002. Shaq was out injured and he completely carried the Lakers.

I've just checked the box scores and he scored 41 points - Devean George was the next highest scoring Laker with 11.

During overtime he was completely spent but still pounding the floor - Amazing athlete.

(Don't worry, Birdman - the C's won Eye-wink ).

Never a fan of him or his game (unpopular opinion) but this is truly awful news. I’m not sure I can think of a bigger premature death in NBA history.

Family man? He was at best an adulterer and at worst a rapist.

There isn’t a hard G in ‘Nakers’ though but yeah cool… I’m sure the sentiment would be exactly the same if it had been on Fox News!

True… weird how in death people are seen in a different light suddenly.
