Drazen was a special player.

I'd have to put Penny and Hill above Jay Williams. Though he seems to disclude injury from playing, but from outside influences, but what happened to Penny was bad. Had microfracture and wasn't told how to rehab it and stuff, so sad.

from a homer perspective Eddie Griffin was pretty sad around here, we gave up Richard Jefferson for the guy only to be one disaster after the next culminating with his charred remains being found in a vehicle after a train smashed it to hell.

Great article. I saw Bobby Hurley play for the Grizzlies after fighting to come back for 4 years with SAC. It was really sad to watch such a great college talent struggle like that on the floor.

Kobe Bryant should get an honorable mention for the two seasons that his career was hijacked by by that Colorado psycho.

Just sad and depressing stuff. You gotta feel for those guys.

The one that bugs me most was Seles' incident. The guy was a deranged fan of Stefi Graf, who wanted her to regain the #1 ranking. Not only did his act achieve the very result that he'd hoped, but he caught a break and got a nutty judge who determined that he was no longer a threat, so the guy didn't even go to jail! He stabbed a woman in the back on live TV and he walked! Talk about stabbing her in the back twice.

So not only did Graf regain #1, but her top competition was psychologically scarred for the next several years, and Stefi just rolled from there and stacked up the grand slams. It's not her fault, because Graf was a great player and by most accounts a pretty good sportsman, but I can't help but resent her success for that reason.
