Former NBA player Quinton Ross death hoax has been revealed as it has been confirmed that the basketball star is still alive.
Rumors were circulating that Quinton Ross died after a report from the New York Post claimed the former NBA star was found dead in a shallow grave. However, it has now been confirmed that Ross is alive and well.
The New York Post stated that Ross was found in a trash bag that was buried in a shallow grave. The twist in this story is that the person that was found dead is named Quinton Ross, however, it is not the former NBA star.
Before the New York Post could update the story with the correct information, other news outlets began reporting on Ross’ death. The news hit social media and circulated heavily on Twitter. However, the shooting guard was confirmed to be alive after Ross spoke to a former teammate and stated that he is fine.
The New York Post has since updated the article with a line that reads:
“Initial reports that the victim is former Nets basketball player Quinton Ross are incorrect, police said.”
UPDATE: Initial reports that body found in the Rockaways is former Nets basketball player Quinton Ross are incorrect http://t.co/B0bYrilviz
