Reports are coming in that the mother of G-league player Zeke Upshaw is suing the NBA and Detroit Pistons over him untimely death.

Upshaw, 26, died on the basketball court in the last minutes of a game in March. He died from cardiac arrest. According to TMZ, his mother claims that he would of lived if the medical staff treated him immediately as it took four minutes for a doctor to get to him.

She felt the treatment was poor and with NBA’s history of players suffering from cardiac arrests, there should be proper protocol. She hopes this suit will make the NBA change their policies.
