It's not news that he was a great player. We all know that. IF he did shoot himself, he's not a great human being. Great human beings don't do this to his kids and family. Anyone see what this did to his mother? You don't do that to your loved ones.
The story here is what actually happened and if it was indeed suicide, what was going on in his life? I heard Mort briefly allude to failed businesses but I heard others say that everything he did turned to gold so I don't know
Great human beings make mistakes; even tragic ones. Great human beings can also get sick. Did he make a mistake, or was he mentally ill? In either event it doesn't mean he wasn't a great human being.
Anyway, here is a cool story about him:
EDIT: I took something out that was probably inappropriate. So I'll just say that I found SeaRay's post really offensive and leave it at that.
