The former New York Knicks great, Marvin “The Human Eraser” Webster, passed away today at 56, in his hotel room. The cause of his death is still unknown, however investigators have ruled out any foul play.
For most of his career, Webster played for the New York knicks and then jumped around from team to team after that. His best season was during the 1978 finals run for the Seattle Supersonics when he averaged 16.1 points per game.
Employees at the Ambassador Hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma reported not seeing Webster for the past couple of days, which was odd to them due to the fact that he had been staying there for quite a while. On Wednesday police forced there way into Webster’s hotel room and found him dead in the bath tub. Investigators speculate that the death was most likely caused from a prior illness.
