RIP ‘Ren

Lorenzen Wright was one of the good guys. 

That means something in today’s world. Wright was always loyal to his friends and family. He transcended a less than stellar childhood and continued the homegrown tradition of Memphis basketball that Penny Hardaway kick started. He helped make Tiger Basketball a national brand. 

Beyond that, he represented the city well. He was well spoken and kind. 

And wouldn’t you know? He got a chance to come back home and play for the Grizzlies in front of his friends and family. 

I will miss Lorenzen and remember him as I hope all will, as one of the good guys in Memphis and in basketball.
