Ronny Turiaf -- Moses Malone Reminds Me ... Life's Too Short for the Bulls**t (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Laker Ronny Turiaf says the death of Moses Malone at only 60-years-old ... hit very close to home for him ... since he too has dealt with life-threatening heart issues.

Turiaf was in L.A. Sunday night, and he opened up about Malone's legendary game -- and said it immediately reminded him about his 2005 open heart surgery. Seems Ronny assumed Malone had gone by heart attack, since he wasn't that old.

Turns out he was right. We broke the story ... the Medical Examiner says Malone died from heart disease.

On a lighter note -- former NBA star John Salley reminisced about ballin' against the "Chairman of the Boards."
