R.I.P. Lorenzen Wright

(November 4, 1975 – July 28, 2010)

Reported missing since July 19th, the body of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright was found  in a wooded area of southeast Memphis, Tennessee, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

The former University of Memphis Tiger stand out and at one time Memphis Grizzle was dearly loved in the City of Memphis.

I remember going to Grizzle games at the Pyramid and Fed-ex Forum and Wright was definitely a crowd favorite, because he was a hometown favorite and also a hustle player who brought tons of energy to the court. Lorenzen Wright was one of my favorite players when he played for the Grizzlies. I remember getting to meet him at IHOP two summers ago, he’s really nice person.

Lorenzen Wright also gave back to the city of Memphis with his annual Lorenzen Wright Basketball Camp.

Lorenzen Wright, you will be truly missed.
