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 the Casablanca 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."

One always has to have a Plan "B" for when they get too old for Plan "A".......he must have not gotten that memo.

Sad way to go.
