Oh wow... RIP.

He was one big guy back then.

That's a shame, from all accounts a 'gentle giant'. I originally suspected drugs but it seems that he had multiple aorta related issues. Wife and two sons...sad.

And to think that he was traded for Dirk Nowitzki. I remember him in Michigan but not in NBA. Sad news.
