I remember that '97 Clippers playoff team - Brent Barry, Loy Vaught, Bo Outlaw, Darrick Martin, Terry Dehere, Rodney Rogers, Pike, Pooh, and of course Lorenzen. Loved that team.

Rest easy man.

"According to sources, the body was found in the wooded area of Hacks Cross and Winchester Road, Wednesday, July 28, 2010. The source has updated Eyewitness News saying, Lorenzen Wright had been shot multiple times and it does not appear to be suicide."

There is a nice article at sports illustrated speaking about how Lorenzo Wright was very generous with his friends and family.

Saw this on another board.

"The curse of the '97 Clippers strikes again. They made the playoffs, but at what cost:

Lorenzen Wright - Dead

Malik Sealy - Dead

Kevin Duckworth - Dead

Rodney Rogers - Quadriplegic

Stanley Roberts - Drug Problems

Pooh Richardson - Drug Problems"

Also, Bison dele was on the 95-96 clippers

You know what the worst part about this is? It wasn't Rasual Butler.

JK

Honestly though, there are a lot of people on a lot of teams fans love around the league and they always say well he was a great guy. It's all a lot of ****. However, Lorenzen Wright owned and operated a BBQ Restaurant in the Memphis area, was highly liked by the local populous, and ran his business very professional like. He was always seen with a smile on his face, and basically fit the "Gentle Giant" and "Friendly Neighbor" profile. Whoever did this I'm sure had 0 good reason at all and should rot in the 10th circle of hell with Hitler. You took away a good person from this world. I was always partial to Lorenzen, he was a favorite all-time clipper of mine and would easily make my all-time clipper roster.

You'll be missed sir, sad to see you go in such a bad way, Love ya buddy.

What drugs were you on when you wrote this? Whats up with the hate for Rasual Butler and joking about him getting murdered? And Why everytime you write something is it putting down Rasual Butler? Sounds like someone has their panties in a bunch or maybe its the panty critters you caught from him....you sound like a jealous ex wife or gf.
