Teammates, friends remember Wright

      Lorenzen Wright will be trully missed. I remember coming back to Lafayette high School and practing aganist Loren and his teammates when he was in the ninth grade. Lorenzen would always acknowledge me whenever he would see me in the Atlanta Metro Area. He knew that I had played the game and knew what it took to make it in the NBA.It seems like yesterday that we were talking and I will never get the opportunity to tell him again how much I appreciated him for making it in the NBA>. Lorenzen, Rest in Peace from Sam Logan.
