Happy birthday to Wayman Tisdale, who would have turned 56 on Tuesday.

The former Booker T. Washington High School and Oklahoma Sooners standout died May 15, 2009 at age 44.

He played in the NBA from 1985-97 after an All-American career at OU, which include a 1984 Olympic gold medal.

His legacy continues beyond the basketball court through Tulsa Public Schools' Wayman Tisdale Fine Arts Academy.
