The reports of the deaths of a couple of Utah Jazz players has been greatly exaggerated. In fact, all Jazz players are fine.
An unfounded rumor circulated on Wednesday in Utah saying various Jazz players were involved in a fatal automobile accident. The rumor was even broadcast on a local radio station. The hoax got even bigger when a caller from Salt Lake City told nationally syndicated sports radio host Jim Rome of the supposed crash. After the phone call on the Rome show, the Deseret News received several phone calls - including some from out of state - trying to find out if the story was true.It wasn't. All Jazz players have been accounted for, and none were involved in a fatal crash.
