An autopsy is currently set for tomorrow; sources are already saying there's no suspicion of foul play in his death.

Darryl was the first NBA player to be drafted straight out of high school and he earned the nickname "Chocolate Thunder" for his monstrous dunks.

The game of basketball would not be what it is today if it weren't for Darryl, and he will truly be missed.
