First an apology: This will be more about me than it will be Lorenzo Charles. These are the feelings coursing through me. Lorenzo Charles died on Monday, a shocking thing. He was driving a bus for Elite Tours and the crash happened on Interstate 40, near Raleigh, N.C., where he was beloved. Charles had lived a basketball life — he was an excellent college basketball player, of course. Then he played in basketball leagues all around the world, and he coached for a while before settling back in Raleigh and driving busses.
