I didn’t know much about Tisdale during his life except for two things. He used to play for the Suns and he used to be in NBA Jam. I used to hike on his name but other than that dude wasn’t really on my radar. I felt bad when I heard the news today about losing his life to cancer.
Knee cancer at that, could you imagine? Then I saw this clip on ESPN and I developed a great appreciation for fighting against the odds.
I complain about mad trivial shit. I doubt i’d be as valiant as he was if something as debilitating as cancer, let alone getting my leg amputated, happened to me. I love watching stories like this. Plus I never knew dude was into music like that.
RIP Wayman Tisdale. You’ll be missed.
