Why the nba kill them? I know.....

Michael Coffey

As a Celtic Fan of 47 years old Reggie Lewis to me was even more tragic then L Bias. As L Bias will always be the ULTIMATE what if.... Reggie had gotten to the NBA and has just become one of the top 25, top 20 player's in the game and on the up-rise when he passed away on court, just awful.

Rodney Robinson


Brandon Oxley

Great video, great info but slow down a bit in your diction. Otherwise awesome channel as well


Well I don't know most of them but I can slightly remember Drazen Petrovic. 2K gave him a Diamond card this year and looks worth it, but I didn't know that he is already in heaven.

Mean Mister Mustard

Victor Duremdes

1993 was a sad year for sports. Tennis star Monica Seles was stabbed, NASCAR champ Alan Kulwicki died in a plane crash, tennis legend Arthur Ashe died of AIDS, NBA player Bobby Hurley almost died in a vehicular accident, basketball coach Jim Valvano died of cancer, and the tragic deaths of emerging NBA superstars Reggie Lewis and Petrovic.

Lana Campbell-Moore

Gregory Haines


James Gross

No ! He was a great player! Was set to be the next best thing but it didn't happen .We will never know because he died .So to the person that stated he was the greatest player to ever come out of Europe, I not only disagree I've got to add to it no f**** way get a gripsorry but you're forgetting something serious Kobe Bryant was from Europe he was not born in America he was a European born in Italy he easily topless drawers and it's not even a f*****millisecond will I give it two drawers and over Kobe! But if you want to go old schoolthis guy who could have played as a young man over here he would have f***** killed a bunch of records cuz everyone talks about like bird being the first big man to shoot the three and Hakeem olajuwon a DirkI tell you a true badass was it came to America after you know his prime probably but he's still kicked ass was sabonis that dude was badass he could fucken shoe 2374 he's a big dude it's pretty badass great shooter way before everybody else's time.he doesn't give that you get that credit is one of the greatest big man that ever played the game but he should it's pretty pretty what are you talkin about drawers and he knows best player come from Europe or whateverthere's a whole list of players who got that dude beat I know we played good against Michael Jordan the gamer to you but he had nothing on all these other guys date and he didn't get a chance to prove it he should have me know she'll live to be able to prove it.I'm not trying to be hard on the guy cuz he died I mean I know he couldn't help it it's justeveryone saw its potential that doesn't mean you follow through with it that's like saying Bobby Hurley would have ran over f**** Michael Jordan cuz that's what they saidin the NBA games use ever play in prior to his automobile actually sit here and circles around Michael JordanI mean it's let's face it that's hard to picture my Bobby Hurley dominating Michael Jordan but supposedly that was a talk before he got injured in the in a car wreck.unfortunately he did get in that car wreck so now it's just a myth or not even a mess it's just a it never happened you know. Bobby was a part of one of the greatest college teams evereveryone talks about the major upset with North Carolina State and Houston which let me tell you something the Louisville Cardinals took everything out of Houston they probably should have been that won that gamewho is that Louis should have got a technical foul throw in the towel out that would have been a dagger for him I know that was in the first half of it would have been enough for us to hang onto a lead it was it was a devastating moment for them but they came back but Lewisville took everything out of Houston they had nothing left to give North Carolina who wasn't a bad team picked them to win the championship that year why because they beat Ralph Sampson twice in the experimental 3-point shot was only experimented in the ACC league that year and they beat f**** Ralph Sampson twice and that was a pretty damn good team the years of Ralph Sampson but anyway..we had ESPN that urine cable and watch the experimental 3-point shot get used in the ACC tournament and I saw how well did Sidney Lowe and dereck whittenburg just kicked ass and her team remind me of Louisville's team the size and her their guard playing everything but is just one of the most amazing wins you will ever see in college basketball! Yeah I knowwe kind of get caught up in it with the point I was making up until you watch the junior Christian laettner take down one of the best if not the best f**** college basketball teams ever and UNLV it has to be the biggest upset of all-time in college basketball playing an average age of everyone on you know he's team was 26 Anderson hunt Larry Johnson, Augman, Scurry, the Greg Anthony! Duke was blown out by 30 the year prior by UNLV in 5he NCAA tournament game.I believe this was a game to get into the final four or was the final four I can't recall exactly it doesn't matter because when Duke came to get revenge on UNLV no one could get past the Intimidating running rebels of UNLV they were on an Undefeated Run! They beat This same team by 30 points. Everyone expected a similar outcome on this game! The dukes Bobby Hurley especially Christian laettner

Jesus Rivera

Nawfside dp

Ik Kobe not up here but rip man we miss you


Yeah let me tell about peoples death while I have cool music in the background


To this day I'm angry with Portland to not appreciate Dražen. When Luka came to NBA some coaches said it's not fair that he's considered a rookie at the age of 19, because he had some European professional experience while college students had none. When Dražen came to the NBA he was one of the top players in the world and a European legend already,...of course NBA didn't value European players back then and he was put on the bench,...Ridiculous. And of course - he was considered a ROOKIE. :) (technically he was an NBA rookie, but still)

I remember i used to get Eddie griffin confused with the comedian/actor eddie griffin.. I remember reggie lewis as well i liked them both

Peter Carman

Taj Tenant

Isaiah Herring

Rip Stacy Patton aka Malik sealy if you know you know

Sean Westbrook

They forgot Len Baise

Typical Johnathan

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow no Kobe?


Unappealing Undesirable

I was born in Seattle in 1973, a Sonics and Blazers fan. What angers me about the man who killed Malik Sealy, is that after he was released from jail, he was AGAIN arrested for drunk driving. Goodness sake, you kill a pro athlete in his prime, a father and husband, and you STILL didn't learn?


R.I.P Kobe


Rip to these legends

Knicks Fan



Here's one non NBA player, that 'what if he didn't die and played for the Celtics?' Len Bias.

Emmanuel Santos
