First reported by TMZ and confirmed by Woj.
Lebron just passed him for 3rd on the all-time scoring list last night.
Same. I was picking up groceries at Giant and word spread like crazy. First couple of sites I checked had nothing. His Wikipedia page had been edited to show his death date as today then very shortly thereafter edited to take that away.I wanted to believe this was a hoax but damn. The world just lost a legend wayyyyyy too soon.
I don't know about that, but I do think it would be a nice tribute to retire his number 24 across the entire NBA.I've heard a couple talking heads on TV bring this up right after the news broke so...should the NBA have considered postponing games scheduled for today in the wake of this news?
