RIP Adreian Payne

Former NBA player Adreian Payne has been shot and killed in Florida at the age of 31. He just finished this season playing in Lithuania a few months ago and last played in the NBA in 2018.


Payne is perhaps best known for befriending an 8 year old girl with cancer when he was in college.

And whilst reading it showed that his former teammate Keith Appling is up on 1st degree murder after a few other brushes with the law.
Thought Payne could have eked out a longer career in NBA, was really good in his senior year.

I'm glad you mentioned his senior year - I remember Payne for his time at Michigan State more than anything else.
