Sad news to report today in the world of basketball as streetball legend and former AND 1 mixtape star, Tyrone "Alimoe" Evans has reportedly passed away from complications following a stroke.

The Harlem, NY resident also known as "The Black Widow" rose to prominence during the street ball boom of the late 90s and early 2000s. The 6'7" player was known for his trademark ball handling skills despite his immense size, something only seen on a regular basis in the National Basketball Association.

Alimoe reached superstar status as one of the move popular players during the AND 1 Mixtape Tour. He stood out with famous street ball players of the era including Hot Sauce, The Professor, Main Event, The Air Up There, and many more. In an interview with Hoopsvibe in 2003, Evans said he wanted to be remembered as somebody that made somebody else get up and do better.

"They don't have to let me know that I lit their fire; just go out and do it.," said Evans. "They don't have to thank me and bring me out to the game; just go do it. Just knowing that that little kid watching me took something home with them. See, basketball is a teacher of life. The lessons you learn in basketball - don't be selfish, work hard, and treat everybody good - they're the same lessons in life."
