    Lorenzen Wright Found Dead

    National Basketball Association (NBA) payer Lorenzen Wright of Memphis Grizzlies found dead with several gun shots on his body.

    Lorenzen wright studied and finished his bachelor's degree at the University of Memphis. He was a basketball superstar in college but when he entered the NBA Draft it seems that all the odds are against him because of his injuries and playing attidue.

    He was the 7th pick of the Los Angeles Clippers and after few season he was traded to other teams such as Memphis whom he think and would like to end his career. That started the slow development of his career.

    But all those negativities disappeared when he married his wife, and had 6 beautiful children with her.

    His first baby girl died. But despite the remorse Lorenzen made a positive act from it. He built a foundation for poor families in depressed areas in Memphis. He made a scholarship foundation for the poor. He made a difference with the money that he had.

    After some time he decided to play overseas. Israel for instance. His flight for Israel would have been this August but something happened to him.

    Due primarily to financial bankruptcy his wife left him. And he became so depressed. He was reported to have left his home and went to places without telling his relatives and love ones.

    Police officers are saying that someone called them through 911 telling that Lorenzen wright is with them. The person didn't tell his name. Until the officer heard gun shots. Afer a day Memphis district saw a body across one of the main street in Memphis.

    The man laying on the road dead was Lorenzen. His family and relatives were shocked. They didn't expect this to happen to a person like him.
