Boy, that's really tough. I remember when Mark lost his dad. I'll never forget that. Right at the same time, his wife gave birth to their son (if memory serves me right). He came out and played one of the most inspired games of basketball I've ever seen. I'll keep the family in my prayers.

I imagine his weight probably contributed to it.

It's unfortunate. From what I saw on the And 1 mixtapes back in the day, he seemed like a very likable guy. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
