Quote:
Shane Richmond, the son of NBA Hall of Famer and former Golden State Warriors guard Mitch Richmond, died suddenly this week. He was 20.

Mitch, 54, announced the devastating news in a statement released on Tuesday. The former NBA star said his youngest son died unexpectedly on Monday night, but did not disclose any other details about the tragedy.

“We are heartbroken and devastated with this tragic news, and will use the strength of our family and the thoughts and prayers of our friends to get through this incredibly difficult time,” Richmond said on behalf of his wife Julie, their two other sons Phillip and Jerin and his daughter from a previous relationship, Tearra Gates.

“Shane was a ray of light for his two brothers, sister, mom and dad and, at only 20 years of age, had a wealth of friends and admirers who will desperately miss his warm affection and smile,” Mitch continued.

“As we go through the grieving process and the loss of our son, we ask that you respect our privacy,” he added.

Terrible to lose a child, especially a young man just starting out in life. If he was anything like his father, I'm sure Shane was a wonderful person. Condolences to the Richmond family.

The Nets all but conceded defeat with 44 seconds left, subbing for Kidd and Kenyon Martin despite trailing by only six points. Bryant made two free throws while the two Nets got a rousing ovation, and 14-year veteran Mitch Richmond hit the final shot of the game -- and his only one of the series.

I was so happy for him at that moment..

RIP
