Wayman Tisdale

I was sad to see that Wayman Tisdale died over the weekend.

Tisdale went to my high school, and I have fond memories of watching him play like a man among boys (I guess they were all boys, but he was a beast).  I was only in middle school then, but we would turn out, largely because of him.  I hated watching him light it up against my Jayhawks when he was at Oklahoma, but you’ll never hear anything negative about this guy.

He had a solid jazz career after his playing days ended.  He lost a leg to cancer a while back, and now it took the rest of him.

Sad.  Only 44, and one of the good guys.
