Such bad news to start off the week.
NBA star Amar'e Stoudemire's older brother was killed in a high-speed automobile accident in Florida this morning.
Hazell Stoudemire crashed into the back of a tractor trailer on the highway at a "high rate of speed," sources say.
Unfortunately, Hazell was not wearing a seat belt and passed away at the scene. No word on whether or not alcohol contributed, but it sounds like reckless driving is to blame.
Regardless of whose fault it was, our thoughts and prayers go out to the New York Knicks player, along with the rest of his family.
