Eddie Griffin, former MN Timberwolves center/forward, was killed in a collision with a train last week, according to this article:
Now, Eddie Griffin was a talented, yet troubled guy. Had lots of brushes with the law, difficulties with alcohol, and more. Still a bummer, though. And I do remember he could light up a game - he was a three-ball monster when he wanted to be, and a very good shot blocker.
I guess it caught me a little more maybe for this reason - I'm pretty sure I shot one of the last interviews ever with another former Wolves player, guard Malik Sealy, not long before he was killed by a drunk driver in a head-on collision a few years ago. He was looking forward to getting back to NY and getting involved with his recording studio, and was very happy, beaming in fact, because his wife had just bought him a bass.
Rest well, Eddie - sorry you never found peace in this life.
