Notable Sports Drug Overdoses???

There aren't many notable sports drug overdoses, so we ruled that out of the Erica Blasberg death. We the experts would know, of course!

But here they are:

Len Bias-Cocaine overdose the day after he was drafted by Boston
Ken Caminiti-Houston Astro
Darryl Porter-KC Royals catcher

That convo led to a few rock n roll drug overdose mentions, besides the obvious, we talked about these guys.

Phil Lynott-Thin Lizzy

Tommy Bolin-Deep Purple
Pete Farndon/James Honeyman Scott-The Pretenders
Nikki Sixx-declared dead, but they brought him back (or something)
Shannon Hoon-Blind Melon
