Memories & Candles
Though I am a lifelong Duke fan, I could not help but be amazed by the '83 championship team. Lorenzo appeared to have been such a down to earth guy. I am still in shock that he is gone. My sincere codolences to his family and friends.

As a 27 year old ex New Yorker, I also hailed from Brooklyn. After quickly becoming a Wolfpack basketball fan, I stopped yearning for the NY KNicks, which had been my team growing up.
Lorenzo exemplified the pure spirit, heart, and work ethic of that 83' championship team. Coach V had no doubt, run that scenario in practice hundreds of times: Derrick hoisting up a short 38ft. shot, and ZO cutting to the low post to grab the ball and slam

My deepest condolences on the loss of Lorenzo....he was a kind and gentle man, a wonderful son, father, husband, brother and friend. He was so much more than a dunked basketball....he was a beautiful spirit. May God comfort you and bring you mercy during this sorrowful time.
