    I wonder if his death had anything to do with his heart defect. I remember him playing in the PMAC when Michigan visited LSU during the mid/late 90's. The student section was really heckling him hard but he seemed to have a good attitude about it.

    At 34, you gotta think so. Pretty sad but it shows once again the risk of being that heavy.

    The article says it was a massive heart attack.

    Very sad news, indeed. Seemed like a really nice big fella.

    Back when I actually watched the NBA...I liked Tractor. That's way too young to be lost.
