Untitled[edit]

His 'cause of death' was not disputed, it was from a heart attack. The questions centered around whether cocaine was involved.

Revamp[edit]

This page is in dire need of a revamp. It is too quick, and very informal. Someone with the time and knowledge of this pro should address those issues.

Someone also should corrrect the entry to reflect that Reggie Lewis suffered a sudden cardiac arrest, not a heart attack. These conditions are often confused, and the suggestion that Reggie Lewis died from a heart attack is misleading. 208.27.111.121 21:32, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Death and legacy section[edit]

Information regarding James Crowley is unsourced, and may plagiarize an article on boston.com (similar phrasing).

Why is "Dream Team" info being removed?[edit]

I was surprised this information wasn't in the Reggie Lewis section, and quite frankly, not completely surprised why someone immediately removed this. Why? This is major information regarding the death of Reggie Lewis, and it seems that whomever is removing the information I added is working from a different agenda.

There's no mention in the sources about the "dream team" which you mentioned. These specific words must be in the source in order for it to be verifiable. And the whole paragraph is poor grammatically which doesn't add anything good to the article. – Sabbatino (talk) 18:03, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Funny, but I just checked the article source, and the dream team was mentioned in there! So I have no idea what you are talking about. Clearly you are lying, and it is obvious to me that you have some sort of agenda where you don't want this information in Lewis's Wikipedia listing. It was obvious to me at the time when I first read the Lewis entry that the dream team recommendation and then the Mudge recommendation was curiously omitted. When something this significant is omitted, I realize there's usually a person who doesn't want that in the listing. But I decided to put it in anyway, and even had sources for it. So I wasn't surprised that someone reverted this almost immediately. I really don't like when individual people have their own agenda on entries where they believe information should be omitted. I've come across this a couple of other times, but thankfully, not too often. But life is too short to get into an edit war with someone on Wikipedia. Have it your way to omit information. It's just a shame is all. Asc85 (talk) 02:55, 16 July 2016 (UTC)
