That's very sad. He was a very underappreciated player. Very blue collar type of guy. Hustled a lot and did the little things.

I go to school with his son, but he's just back in Oregon and doing charity for Parkinson's. I believe his charity is called "Shake it till we make it" or something like that...

He was in attendance at some NBA game I watched a while ago and the commentators talked about his charity work.
You can never tell what a person is like when you see him on tv and stuff, but Grant always struck me as a good guy. The way he has handled his disease (with the charity work and all) shows greatness though

Wow, I'm honestly not sure if I knew about this. If I did, I completely forgot. I certainly wish him the best.

I hope the doctors and the scientist finally found a cure to Parkinson's disease.
