Appreciated. I wished he would've gotten a ring, before his career concluded. Nonetheless, he achieved somethin' bigger than a ring. He made his dream of building a hospital in his homeland come to fruition, and to me, that's cool.

greg oden can only wish to have career numbers like deke when it's all said and done....cuz he definitely don't have the same impact.

Deke is my favorite Hawk ever. He is the man. The Hawks would be scary with a prime Deke at center now.

I saw him in person one day and got a good look at his Bentley. The front seat was so far back i don't think you could fit a shoebox in the back seat behind him.

You hear about players donating money for school gyms...Dikembe built an entire hospital in Africa through his fundraising and personal charity. By all accounts a truly wonderful person, by any standard. He had a great career and will be missed.

He sets an example that I wish other players would follow.

Deke's playing days may be over, but I don't think we've heard the last of him. His work in Africa speaks for itself and I have no doubt that he'll never stop giving back to his homeland until the day he dies.

Awful way to go out, but he gave it his all during his entire career and was a legit NBA player till the very end as opposed to a guy just sticking around for a paycheck.

Damn, pretty much everyone that I remember from my youth is now gone.
