The Triangle will never be the same!!! So much can be said about RJ...but the truth is we would never have been able to celebrate our 2016 Championship without the contributions of RJ and what he brought on and off the floor. He always stepped up to make our team better. Yeah, he can be a f*cking idiot sometimes but he was instrumental in making our team a family. Will miss going to war with you...and ing on Channing!!! Brotherhood!!!
Connie Hawkins was the reason I chose to wear "42" as a young kid in Portland, Oregon. My father would tell me stories of this living legend and put me on the phone with him from when I was in grade school. I studied his game and was mesmerized at the athleticism he displayed on the court. I remember him running at full speed, grabbing the ball out of the air with one hand and rising for a powerful finish. What he was able to do with the ball at his size paved the way for some of the all time greats. He was one of the first people I loved watching film of early on and someone that inspired me to play the game. Truly an iconic player. Rest In Peace to "The Hawk".
NBA Champion X3. 7 straight Finals. Came to work and proved his worth every day. A mentor to me. Someone who understood what it took to win in this league. A difference maker. A true professional. So much to say about Champ...man, more than anything I'm gonna miss bouncing ideas off of you and learning from your experience. Best teammate I've ever had and proud to call you one of my best friends.
Suns got a good one!! Good luck on the next chapter brother.
