DAMN!! MY PRAYERS ARE WITH THE HOMIE
Police say former NBA All-Star guard Daron ”Mookie” Blaylock is on life support after a car crash in suburban Atlanta.
Clayton County police spokesman Clarence Cox says Blaylock was driving in Jonesboro on Friday when his SUV crossed the center line and hit a van head on.
Cox says Blaylock was airlifted to the Atlanta Medical Center where he was in critical condition Friday night.
Cox says the man and woman riding in the van were also taken to the medical center. Their names and conditions were not immediately available.
The 46-year-old Blaylock was a first-round draft pick by the New Jersey Nets out of Oklahoma in 1989. He played for the Atlanta Hawks between 1992 and 1999 and the Golden State Warriors for the last three seasons of his 12-year career.

B Remote-Controlled Flying Car/Helicopter ($560) can pretty much go anywhere. Its innovation lies in a patent-pending wheel and propeller design, which places each prop within the wheel. It can take off vertically, hover and fly, and return to the ground to continue driving. Durable polycarbonate construction means it can survive falls from the air and punishing terrain on the ground. A 720p on-board camera and 32G Micro SD card support makes this one capable reconnaissance vehicle. Now, if only they could figure out a way to make the battery last longer than 15 minutes a charge
This Android device aims to be the first phone built with a completely transparent supply chain, letting you know the source of each mineral used to make each component, the people who built them, and the social and ecological impact. Yet the phone itself is no slouch, sporting Android 4.2, a quad-core processor, an eight megapixel rear cam, and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing shooter. It even has dual-SIM trays to make travel easier — which is great, considering you can only buy it in Europe for the time being.
