Former UCLA Star Billy Knight Found Dead At 39



Former UCLA Bruins star Billy Knight, who played for the program from 1997-2002, was found dead last night at the age of 39.

Reports of Knight’s death come shortly after he shared a rather disturbing YouTube video of himself posted on July 8th where he talks about his life of “sorrow” in what seemed to be a farewell message of sorts.

Knight also discussed hearing voice in his head, as well as asking the Lord for forgiveness.

While the video is still online, Sports Rants has chosen not to embed it, but you can see the video here.

Knight averaged 8.0 points and 2.2 rebounds per game during his career.
