Former WNBA player Margo Dydek, who led the league in blocked shots nine times, died Friday after being placed in a medically induced coma following a heart attack last week.

The Polish-born Dydek, pregnant with her third child, collapsed at her home in Brisbane, Australia on May 19; she was early in her pregnancy and the fetus died.

Dydek is, of course, the WNBA's all-time leader in blocked shots, finishing with 877 in 323 career games. The first overall pick of the 1998 WNBA Draft by the Utah Starzz, the 7'2" center was also a member of the Connecticut Sun's 2005 Eastern Conference championship team.

Z, Your Kings are kicking so much ass this year, bro. If my Pacers can't win it this year (and without Al Harrington, I'll admit things look a little grim), you better believe I'll be pulling for Sacramento. WHOO! Beat those damn Lakers!
