    11:08 AM ET 08.24 | Dean "The Dream" Meminger, a key player on the last New York Knicks team to win a title, was found dead in Harlem of a possible drug overdose today -- with his gold championship ring still on his finger, sources said. A fully-clothed Meminger, 65, was discovered on his bed in theCasablanca Hotel on West 145th Street near Broadway after hotel staff went to talk to him after he didn't check out as expected, sources said. "There was white stuff oozing out of his nose," one source said about the troubled ex-Knick. "Looked like he had a seizure after he was using cocaine, but the medical examiner will have the final say."

    The creepiest/saddest part of this, was the part about the championship ring.

    Funniest line concerning "The Dream".
    "Marquette coach Al McGuire once describing him as “quicker than 11:15 Mass at a seaside resort.”
