    I am in absolute shock. That is far too young to die.

    Wow. That is shocking. He was a great defender, unselfish, won 3 championships, and an NBA Finals MVP. I think he won 5 defensive awards if I remember correctly.

    From what I read the world will miss him for being a outstanding human being and father and teacher of the game of basketball. Not meaning to step on anybody toes but why is it when someone famous dies the world is saddened. Why do all of the other deaths around the world go with out a word said. I just find it funny how a basketball player or a playboy pin up girls death is more important than the lifes of middle class men and womens deaths. It is the working class people who make this country run but it is all about money. Sorry for the rant but the whole Anna Nichole Smith things is really starting to p%$# me off.

    Most of us aren't famous, BigPapi, and our deaths won't be broadcast as much as deaths of famous people. Our deaths affect only our loved ones. Famous people who die early like DJ is sad for basketball fans since we knew him for that, but obviously we won't miss him or be affected in the same way that his family will be.

    I don't see how this relates to the thread.

    I'm very shocked. He was too young to die. I live in Austin and follow the NBADL team he coached (Austin Toros). He will be missed by many.
