I’m sure this news has made the rounds by now, but former Phoenix Sun Wayman Tisdale passed away Friday after a two-year bout with cancer. Sadly, Tisdale was just 44.
Since I’m certain other sites will cover the career of Wayman Tisdale, I’ll focus just on what I remember from his Suns days. Along with AC Green, Tisdale signed with the Suns in 1994. He happily accepted a reduced role with the Suns despite being the star on a bunch of bad Kings teams. In both ’94-95 and ’95-96, Tisdale put up over 10 points a game in less than 20 minutes per game. He wasn’t the best player in his 3 years with Phoenix, but he did his job with a smile.
From everyone at SoD : You’ll be missed Wayman.
