NBA’s Most Tragic Deaths

Malik Sealy was selected by the Pacers with the 14th pick in the 1992 draft. He would play for the Pacers, Clippers and Pistons before joining the Timberwolves in 1999. On May 20th, 2000, Sealy was driving home from best-friend and teammate Kevin Garnett’s 24th birthday party, when a drunk driver on the wrong side of the road crashed into Sealy in his SUV. The driver suffered head and chest injuries, and would be given a four-year prison term. The Timberwolves retired Sealy’s no.2, and Garnett got a tattoo of Sealy’s name on his right arm and changed his number to Sealy’s when he joined the Nets in 2013.
