Former Raiders defensive tackle Chester McGlockton passed away Wednesday, the team confirmed. He was 42.
“The thoughts and prayers of the Raider Nation are with the McGlockton family during this difficult time,” Raiders chief executive Amy Trask said in a statement released by the team
McGlockton was selected in the first round of the 1992 NFL draft and spent his first six NFL seasons with the Raiders. He also played with the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets during a career that spanned 12 seasons.
McGlockton returned to the Bay Area once his football career ended. He spent the past two seasons on Stanford’s coaching staff, working under former Raiders coaches Jim Harbaugh and David Shaw.
“It is with great sorrow I acknowledge the death of one of my best friends in the world, Chester Mcglockton,” long-time Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown said via Twitter.
McGlockton was a four-time Pro Bowl player during his Raiders career.

    Hwnrdr, Bynum and Gasol are good as gone from what I read!

    After that melt down in the playoffs last year, and then of all people Odom…that was too much to take! What is going on with the rumor on Paul?

    First of all we all know Howards coming to LA (no surprise)
    I agree with LMN- leave the steroids alone
    I’m a gym rat and never touched them in my 36yrs.
    RIP big Chester.

    Now for today’s topic lol- that double dribble is one of my favorites.
    Excite Bike anyone?

    OH YEAH BABY:

    With the NBA offseason having been shortened significantly, we can expect the rumor mill to be churning out stories at three times the usual rate. After all, this thing has to be sorted out within a month. Any rumor is a possibility, so writers are going to print it. That being said, the Lakers are reportedly interested in acquiring both Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. While that is nothing more than a rumor at this point, they could conceivably pull it off.

    As former Lakers beat writer Mark Heisler wrote on SheridanHoops.com Tuesday, making both Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol available could put the Lakers in the running to land Paul via trade and Howard via sign-and-trade. It should also be noted that Howard was asked last season which All-Star he’d most like to play with to which he responded, “Kobe Bryant.” Not that anyone would have to be convinced to go to the Lakers, anyway.

    Of course, the Nets and Clippers are both expected to make serious offers for Howard with the rest of the NBA also testing the waters. CP3 is reportedly drawing interest from the Celtics as well, who could offer Rajon Rondo as part of a package. Boston has also been mentioned a few times in the Howard discussion.

    For those wondering how the next Big Three of Kobe, Super Man, and CP3 would work out financially, look no further than the Lakers’ new television contract that will kick in next season. The NBA’s new collective bargaining agreement is particularly harsh with regard to the luxury tax, but L.A.’s profit is expected to skyrocket with the new deal in place. As Heisler pointed out, when the Lakers begin their 20-year, $3 billion contract with Time Warner they will be making $150 million a year from their television deal as opposed to $30 million before. Their annual profit, which was $45-60 million, could climb as high as $170 million annually.

    In other words if it’s possible, they can afford it. A core of Bryant, Howard, and Paul would be a nice way to kick off the post-Phil Jackson era.

    Best Diss Songs….

    Don’t forget KRS1 diss against MC Shan ‘The Bridge is Over’ and ‘South Bronx’.

    And another underrated diss song is Common against Ice Cube called ‘The Btch In You’. He got Cube good on that one.

    That is all.

    That is the problem with heart symptoms, most of the time there isn’t any till you have a heart attack and die.

    Im 37 and had my mitral valve repaired and have been diagnosed with the same thing that killed Al Davis..CHF and Cardiomyopathy..

    Luckily I had some symptoms that showed up..but it was 2 years after I SHOULD have been diagnosed and I would have been back to completely normal. Now I am battling for my life, and will be for the rest of it.

    I wonder if someone missed a clue or two that Chester had some heart problems..sleep apnea (which I have) (which also killed Reggie White, also heart attack..)
    I can almost promise you that there was a sign a Doctor somewhere missed that led to this Sudden death..

    We will find out in the autopsy..

    Hopefully I don’t see you soon Chester..While your up there tho, go ahead and Sack Steve McNair for me will ya!

    R.I.P man.
