    Default Eddie Griffin

    A report is claiming that former NBA player Eddie Griffin died while attempting to drive across a set of train tracks last Friday night. I can't say that I followed him closely, in fact all I can remember as far as routing for him was when Isiah wanted to sighn him after he was waived by the Rockets in 03. But ofcourse this is bigger than anything Basketball related, this is a life that was cut off too early and I hope that we all realize how precious our own lives are and how need to appreciate every second of it. My thoughts and prayers go out to his surving family.

    Dag...this hurts. I followed him a lil bit. I know he deserved to play in the starting five with the T-Wolves. This is a young man that died way before his time. Let GOD bless him as he rides to the crossroads...

    This is a sad thing to hear. I always liked Eddie's game, and was hoping he could finally get his career going. To bad his career is now come to a tragic end. RIP Eddie, we'll miss you brother.

    yup that's pretty sad to hear.
    The kid had tons of talent especially with shot blocking....but too many personal demons that held him back.
    Hopefully he is free now. RIP

    He had ****loads of talent and was a good defense with alot of potential on offense. I always wanted him here in New York. Damn, he was only 25...a sad loss.
