Jersey Chaser, a basketball blog, is reporting that Troy Jackson, a former University of Louisville basketball player, has died.

Jackson, who reportedly weighed in excess of 500 pounds at times, played under Denny Crum for two seasons, from 1996 to 1998. He later played with AND1 on the Streetball Mix Tape Tour.

He is the brother of Mark Jackson, a former NBA star and ESPN analyst, and the uncle of Mark Jackson, Jr., a member of the current Louisville team.

Always enjoyed watching Troy play.
