Zeke Upshaw, a 26 year old member of the Grand Rapids Drive, the Detroit Pistons G League affiliate, died from cardiac arrest during one of the team’s games in March. His family recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the NBA, the Detroit Pistons and the owners of the team. The suit alleges that appropriate medical intervention did not happen in a timely manner after Upshaw collapsed, causing him to pass away two days later.
