    "The Atlanta Hawks website is reporting that center Jason Collier died this morning after he went into cardiac arrest.

    "The Hawks have cancelled their practice and will release more information in a press release later today.

    "RealGM, L.L.C. sends their deepest and most heartfeld condolences to the Atlanta Hawks , Atlanta Spirit ownership group, and Jason Collier's family."

    Thanks Roscoe.

    Anyways in attempt to save this thread: a heart attack at 28...I wonder what could've brought it to happen? People are murmuring about steriods and drugs and if thats true than its a sad sad thing.

    The Hawks cancelled practice which was the right thing to do. I doubt this'll affect their depth that much though. I predict Hawks were gonna be a lottery team again anyways.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. 28 is entirely too young for an idividual to leave us.
