    That sucks for Bradley and his family. Too young and is now stuck in a wheelchair for his foreseeable future. Such a pity.

    Not trying to be funny, but would he even fit in an ambulance? Must be crazy hard to be that big with a major injury.

    Definitely sucks, especially given how down to earth the guy was. He left the limelight of the NBA to be a school teacher I think. Sad.

    Feel bad for the guy. Not your typical tall white guy-center. Had a mean-streak to him.

    Hit by a car while riding his bicycle a block from his house. Very sad, Shawn Bradley was always a compe or and class act. Hard to imagine being paraplegic, much less with legs as long as his. Hope to see him achieve success in rehab.

    Texting while driving needs to be upgraded to same as DUI.
    Only put some teeth in the penalty.

    Not like these numb nutts who acquire 7 DUIs and are still given a license.

    were they in the same class? Damn.

    Rodgers was and is one of my favorite NCAA players of all. I used to love Wake Forrest with him and Randolph Childress back in the day. They were the only other ACC team I actually didn’t hate outside my UVA cavaliers.

    The way Rodgers got paralyzed was sad also. Dude wreaked his 4 wheeler.

    I'm in my late 30's but I moved to NC when I was eleven and also hated all the ACC teams except for Wake Forest. I missed out on seeing Rodney/Childress playing but I got to see Duncan/Childress which obviously was pretty exciting to watch.

    My younger brother lives around the area in which Rodney lives and actually had met him a few times prior to him getting paralyzed. My brother told me his interactions with Rodney were always positive and that he was a good guy and very approachable.

    On a side note I remember in hschool watching Mavs-Spurs game 1 in the '01 playoffs and seeing Duncan having a confrontation with Bradley and yelling at Bradley after he got caught with a sharp elbow from him. One thing that took me off guard is how different Duncan's voice sounded when he was angry because they showed an audio clip of him yelling and being sarcastic with the refs when it came to the way they were calling that game and allowing Bradley to get away with hacking him.

    I hated how Don Nelson sandwiched Duncan between Dirk and Bradley. I always wondered how he could score when he had to shoot over the top of Bradley. Bradley played good defense on him, but of course, Duncan being Duncan, he figured it out for most of the series.

    I met Bradley once before the Mavs became a rival. He was on the Mavs. Very approachable guy and not at all stuck on himself. He certainly stood out in a crowd. He even acknowledged that the Mavs sucked at the time and was cool about the Spurs. It's really sad that this happened to him because he was a good dude and he had a good sense of humor about everyone in the league trying to dunk on him, especially given that he blocked lots of those dunks. For every highlight dunk he got, he gave a lot of blocks in return. I remember him blocking Barkley like 6 times in one game.

    Sad news. Really glad he's paraplegic and not quadriplegic though, which is what I was initially fearing from the le.

    Bradley was a great shot blocker. I think he did lead the league in blocks at least once in his career. All great shot blockers get dunked on but I think why it stood out for Bradley was because he looked like a giant awkward stick figure plus he as the tallest guy in the league so it just stood out more. I do remember him blocking Duncan's shot a few times in the '01 playoffs in a game but like you said Duncan being who he was figured him out and eventually got his but it was still amazing how for small stretches he was able to frustrate Duncan.

    Bradley struck me as a good guy whenever I saw his interviews. I remember watching some old high school interviews he had as a senior a year ago that YouTube randomly recommended to me. Even at his young age he seemed pretty mature about what he wanted to do in life and knew who he was which is rare when your 17. Even after his career was over from what I saw of him working as a school teacher it seemed that he was a well adjusted person who was happy with his life. Granted it's easy to be happy when you have millions in the bank but you tend to see a lot of these athletes unhappy and directionless once their careers are over.
