RIP "The Hammer" One of UNLV's all time greats has passed away way too soon at the age of 47! He was nickmaned the Hammer and known as Armen Hammer his real name was Armen Gilliam.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Crown Royal in one hand - stogie in the other - body thoroughly used up! Shouting, "Woo Hoo! What a ride!"

Great college player. RIP. I gave up pickup basketball a few years ago because it seems like a heart attack waiting to happen.
