Sadly, he lost control of his range rover early this morning. RIP.

I was just at that Marshalls a few days ago.

RIP to both of them. I dont want to come to any premature conclusions, but there are reports that he was going 90 mph (this is Ventura Blvd). I have a feeling they have cameras all over Ventura blvd, so they'll probably be able to see what happened.

Yikes! If true I feel terrible for his wife and happy that he did not needlessly kill anyone else. What a tragedy.

Saw this news a bit earlier today. RIP to Rasual and his wife. I had kind of followed him since he came into the league with Caron on the Miami Heat. He managed to make a long nba career for himself.

I suspected alcohol was involved or at least stupidity if the 90 mph is true.

Its tragic this happened that he caused his own death as well as his wife's luckily nobody else was there.
