Every year we have a play or an injury or a trade that we wish had never happened. It is not every year that something this tragic and horrifying happens. It comes as no surprise that this murder wins this category. We knew it when the nominations came out and wish it had somehow not made it through the nominations process.
Murder of Lorenzen Wright, First Place: 62.08%
Rudy Gay’s Season Ending Injury, Second Place: 13.15%
Kristen Tallent Leaving Memphis for Tulsa, Third Place: 7.34%
Best Write-in Vote: July 4th
