He lost a 2 year battle with cancer and is dead at age 44. I vaguely remembered the story of him having to have his leg amputated two years ago after breaking it during a fall because of a cyst. He was a Hall of Fame college basketball player, an underrated NBA player (spending a lot of his tenure with a terrible Kings franchise), and a talented musician off the court. May he rest in peace.

RIP Wayman.

He was the biggest bust that the Pacers EVER drafted! Pacers picked him their #1 draft pic, 1st overall if I remember right. He showed up overweight, no work ethic and just took the money and didn't do anything with his talent.

(I'm still sorry he's gone.)

I saw that special on TV about his amputation. Real sad story for such a talented athlete and jazz player. 44 is still very young in the game. RIP to Wayman.

Tisdale was taken #2 overall. He put up 15 and 7 a game for the Pacers in his first three seasons and went on to be one of the only guys who actually gave a crap and produced on those awful Sacramento Kings teams in the early 90's.....how can you compare that to some of the other busts the Pacers have drafted in the first round?? Worse than some injury prone guy named Steve Stipanovic that was drafted #2 overall and only played 5 years? Worse than Fred Jones who has played for five teams in seven years? Worse than former Bobcats "star" Primoz Brezec? Worse than Scott Haskin who only played one season in the NBA?
