Yup - and not just the Grizz, but the city of Memphis as a whole. The one thing that the Grizz have done consistently since moving to Memphis is their work with the community. DD and Chris Wallace, in particular, "get" this market. Double D will be missed.

First Lorenzen Wright, now this. Hopefully, this is not a trend.

RIP Dana. Thanks for your contributions to the Grizzlies and my condolences to your family.

You can't be feeling it too much, Dana is/ was a man.

RIP to Dana, and condolences to his family.
