In the sports business we are conditioned to see individuals come and go with no hesitation as to what the departure of that individual will mean to a city, community and fan-base. Very few individuals have had the impact on the Bay Area community as Dorell Wright did during his stint with the Golden State Warriors. Classy, humble and professional to the core, Dorell gave his all to the Bay Area both on-and-0ff the court. From Foundation events, coat drives, giveaways, kick-backs with fans, and much more, Wright from day one treated the Bay Area as home.
Wright sent over a personal message he wanted me to relay to Warriors fans:
“I want to take the time out to say thank you, thank you, THANK YOU so much for all your support. Thank you for allowing me to call the Bay Area home for the last 2 years. Thank you for letting me put the D Wright Way Foundation footprints in your community. You guys are truly some of the best fans in the NBA and it was an honor to play hard in front of you every night. The Bay Area now has a special place in my heart. Make sure to hold down WarriorsWorld.net & The Lunch Box. Hold up that 3… Shoot the J!!!!”-DWright
