Yeah, it's even more disrespectful than when I laughed at Len Bias' death in a thread I made called "Most Saddest Death" with no seriousness whatsoever.

This is a sad day, Yinka was a great player and will never be forgotten. I remember scouring the city for his basketball card and cracking jokes with my friends about his monstrous stats, those days will never be forgotten. I hope you lived a good life Yinka.

When I read the first post I was just about to say that. Sarcasm is not necessary when talking about deaths. Please change the title to something serious.
I tried but it doesnt work. Once again, I apologize for the unnecessary sarcasm in my post

It's really sad because I think Yinka Dare is one of those names that every basketball fan knows. We all knew his monsterous stats. We all made jokes about them. So to me, it's on the same level of impact as if it was an all-star. I think even in spite of his stats, no one really faulted Yinka. I remember watching him play at GW and thinking he was going to be the next Patrick Ewing.

Just a really sad day.

The fact that he died so young is what really disturbs me. I wish his family the best.

Yinke's age coming in to the league was not as young as everyone thaught. There is no proof that he had a forged birth cirtificate but they are very easy to get espically in developing countries. My theory is that he came into the NBA around 35 years old, and that means he died when he was 45-50 years old which is not to hard to believe seeing that he had a heart attack.

Yinka, huh? And a heart attack, a common killer? RIP, but it's not a very big deal. Definitely not a big NBA deal.
