R.I.P. Eddie Griffin

We send our condolences to the family and friends of former Timberwolves guard Eddie Griffin, who was killed last Friday when his SUV hit a moving train. Word of his death in Houston only came out yesterday.

They haven't announced the toxicology report yet, so it's best not to jump to conclusions ... but ... well, Griffin had has certainly had his fair share of difficulties behind the wheel of a car before. It's not the most desirable way to be remembered, we suppose, but as clearly troubled as Griffin's life was, in a way, you almost have to be relieved it happened fast. And, of course, not while the film Privates was playing, which, we repeat, is the worst name of a porn film we have ever heard.

Rest in peace, Eddie: It was a short, crazy trip for you.
