I was on the 2nd row at the Salt Palace with my good buddy Jerry, kareem, or Dan Issell. Have to admit we both looked at each other and said, where in the world did the JaZZ find this guy?? He was indeed the Human Eclipse!! Never have seen a man with his stature ever. Mark was a giant of a man, but better than than that he had an even bigger when it comes to being a good person. What a great man. Needless to say, his performance for the Jazz was just incredible!! When the dream shake tells you he was his most feared opponent, that is saying something. RIP big man you will be missed!

He was truly a GREAT MAN. A hard player, and a gentle giant afterwards. I always wondered what would happened if he would have been in his prime and playing on the Jazz team that went to the finals twice. Would/could they have won a CHAMPIONSHIP???????? RIP big man.🙏🙏🙏🙏

Pretty sad. I met Mark back in the '80's and he was such a nice dude. I've met other 7 footers, Kareem, Shaq, even Manute Bol but Mark Eaton was the largest human being I've ever seen.

So shocked to hear of his passing. Mark was a guest motivational speaker at a business function I attended before the pandemic hit. I was honored to get a picture with him and an autographed copy of his book. When he learned I was from Huntington Beach, CA, he mentioned he went to Westminster HS and Cypress College. If he hadn’t said that, I would’ve never known he was from the O.C.! R.I.P. Mark.

A pillar of 80s basketball - you couldn't watch Utah and miss seeing Mark block, defend, smack or foul anybody who entered the painted circle . for his size the man covered ground... watching him compete was a staple of that era ... all the best to his family & loved ones.

Mark was recruited by Wooden at a local car maintenance center. He noticed he could see the mechanic working on his vehicle extending out both sides of the car. 🤣 RIP Mark

how in the world do you die....on a bicycle? Probably a heart attack or stroke etc..hated having to play him and his Jazz in the 80's. Many great games vs my Mavericks back then

Obviously 7 footers & bikes are a dangerous mix in the state of Utah. First Shawn Bradley & now Mark Eaton. So to the Felton Spencers & Greg Ostertags of the world: *Whenever the Jazz invite you to a reunion someday, get to SLC anyway you can. But if you feel an itch to bike it, just bite it.*

This is an illuminati sacrifice so the Jazz can advance in this series.

Every year an NBA former great is killed so his former team can move up.

Eaton liked to showboat by taking his hands off the handlebars! He never thought it would kill him, but he liked to clown around! But he didn't think it was so funny, heh heh heh, WHEN THAT FENDER SMASHED HIS SKULL!! UH, YESSSSSS!!!!
