NBA’s Most Tragic Deaths

The death of Ricky Berry remains somewhat of a mystery. After a successful rookie season with the Kings, Berry showed great potential and was expected to have a bright future in the league, but in the 1989 offseason just weeks before his 25th birthday, Berry was found dead in his home from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He had left a suicide note and was arguing with his wife, but there is still plenty of mystery surrounding his tragic passing. He had a bright future ahead of him, he was earning a lot of money, had a nice house and car, a beautiful wife and was clear of drugs and alcohol.
