Former NBA player Quinton Ross was dead according to several different news outlets today after a body was found in Queens that was believed to be the former New Jersey Nets man. 

The original story was reported by the New York Post earlier on today after they sought information from police that confirmed the former NBA player had been found dead buried near the Far Rockaway beach. 

However, this original information turned out to be false as police later confirmed that the body found was that of another man named Quinton Ross. 

The confusion led to the player trending on Twitter for some time, with many people going through different stages of confusion. 

The fact still remains that a made named Quinton Ross was found dead in a shallow grave, and our thoughts go out to his family and friends. 

The NBA's Ross had played in the big league from 2004 to 2011, turning out for teams such as LA Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks, Washington Wizards and the Nets.
