Yesterday the sports world was mourning the loss of legendary NBA player Moses Malone who died at the age of 60. Now we have the cause of his untimely death.
NBA great Moses Malone died due to a severe hardening of his arteries according to TMZ Sports. The Medical Examiner’s Office in Norfolk, VA tells them Malone suffered from hypertension and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. The condition likely induced a fatal heart attack or stroke.
60-year-old Malone, one of basketball’s greatest centers of all time, died Sunday morning in a Norfolk hotel. Paramedics arrived, and tried to revive him, but were unsuccessful.
Malone, known as the “Chairman of the Boards”, played 19 years in the NBA, and was a Hall of Fame inductee in 2001.
He will be greatly missed, may he rest in peace.
