    Dang. That sucks. Met him a few years back and he towered over my 65 frame like I was a kid. RIP.

    He was cool and was a great old school defender. Rudy's post is touching. Didn't know Mark was still around the team.

    It was a bicycle accident? How strange and tragic. I figured he died from gigantism, like Andre the Giant.

    Yeah, I think he and Rudy had a pretty special connection.

    How crazy is it that he died the same way Shawn Bradley (both in Utah) got paralyzed.

    Yes, both were riding bicycles in Utah. One was hit by a vehicle and paralyzed. The other one possibly just fell or had some medical distress and passed away.
