Everyone keeps talking about how nice of a guy he was
I want to reiterate what a nice guy Ren was.
The photo I have was taken at one of the open practices the Grizz have in October.
The event was pretty much over and we had met and shook hands with a number of players but not Lorenzo.
One of my kids, Chandler(11 at the time), loves the Grizz. He was fully aware, as anyone who watched Ren play, what a fan favorite he was. When that guy dunked the place went nuts.
He spied Ren about 40 feet away in a roped off area, just about to get in an elevator.
My kid yelled his name. Anyone else would have ignored him, or just waved and got on the elevator. He didn't. Dude, walked all the way back over to us, shook hands, said a few nice things to my kid, took a picture, high fived my kid and left. Great dude.
