Former Timberwolves player, has died at age 25. His car collided with a frieght train, killing him instantly.
I always liked Eddie, and was sad when we waved him. His 7 of 15 from three point range against philly still ranks as one of the best performances I have ever watched.
Troubled by alcohol and drugs throughout his short career, Eddie seemed to have found a peace and a home with the Timberwolves in 04. Inconsistancy and injugy kept him from being resigned, and he ended up leaving the NBA during the 06-07 season.
He was a former seventh overall pick, a tenacious shot blocker, and one of the better undersized rebounders in the league.
He will be missed.
