“Rest in paradise DT,” wrote the 4xNBA Finals MVP. “Crazy man. 33 Years Young! Prayers sent to the heavens above for his loved ones.” Reports of Demaryius Thomas’ demise were filed on Thursday itself when he suffered a seizure while showering inside his home. LeBron James is reported to have a great interest in NFL as well and even praised Thomas’s potential and prowess on several occasions.
Thomas played 10 seasons in the NFL between 2010 and 2019. He spent most of his career with the Broncos, where he won a Super Bowl title in 2016.
