Eddie Griffin found dead

Fucking sad.

Perhaps the poster child for an athlete who couldn't outrun his demons. It seemed that every year Griffin would start off each NBA season with promise and excitement, only to find his way to trouble towards the middle/end of the season. Thoughts go out to his family.

Obviously the guy was more fucked up than anyone could've thought. Just a sad story all around.

A great player, and another athlete who fell to the mental side of life. John Lucas tried his best. Poor guy.
