Lorenzo Charles Dies In Bus Accident

We heard on the radio this evening that a bus wreck on I-40 had killed the driver.  It never, ever occurred to us that the driver would be Lorenzo Charles, whose last-second dunk of a missed Derek Whittenburg against Houston in 1983 is still celebrated by CBS. What a terrible thing to hear.

Lorenzo Charles, dead at 47.
