Troy "Escalade" Jackson, dead

Troy "Escalade" Jackson, the larger-than-life streetball legend and younger brother of former NBA player Mark Jackson, died in his sleep early yesterday morning. The 6-foot-10, 400-pound Jackson, 35, was in Los Angeles for NBA All-Star Weekend. The cause of death is unknown pending an autopsy. Jackson, a Jamaica, Queens native, played collegiate basketball at Louisville, but became one of the most famous streetball players of all time with the And 1 Mixtape Tour, a traveling basketball exhibition he joined in 2002. He also traveled for two years with the Harlem Globetrotters and most recently he competed with the Ball Up streetball team. New York Post
