Wayman Tisdale, a three-time All-American at Oklahoma who played 12 seasons in the NBA, died after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 44.
Tisdale died Friday morning at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, hospital spokeswoman Joy McGill said.
After three years at Oklahoma, Tisdale played in the NBA with the Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns. The 6-foot-9 forward, with a soft left-handed touch on the court and a wide smile off it, averaged 15.3 points for his career. He was on the U.S. team that won the gold medal in the 1984 Olympics.
After basketball, he became an award-winning jazz musician, with several albums making the top 10 on the Billboard charts.Via: Google News
Wayman accomplished success in athletics and music, and 44 years wasn't enough time to fully appreciate his work. If you have one of his jazz albums, pull it out, and if you don't, pick them up and bump them for Brother Wayman...

BUT it was the brown patent leather dunks I affectionately call the "WoodGrain"...

ceremony for Rev Timothy Wright, my thoughts kept going to his sons and family.
I know they are hurting more than words can describe, but it must feel good to
know how loved their father was and is.
I discovered his music when I was an early teen. Like a lot of music, my dad
had a cassette tape of Rev. Wright and his choir. There was a song entitled,
"Jesus Will" that I would play over and over and over.
Many prominent people got up and spoke beautifully. Some have been friends with
Rev. Wright before he could play. Not only is that a testament to friendship,
but also to Rev. Wright's work ethic, because he grew to be a musical giant in
the gospel world.
One of the speakers was Rev. Al Sharpton. While reflecting on a conversation he had the day before with Aretha
Franklin about the tragic car accident, Rev. Sharpton said "the good thing is Rev Wright's
life ended the way he lived it.... On the right side of the road."
Hands clapped, tears fell and voices celebrated.
The sons gave their remarks last and spoke with a strength connected to God.
Then Rev. Marvin Winans, one of the greatest voices ever created sang a healing
rendition of "Well Done" and a bit of "Last Mile Of The Way."
The Eulogy was delivered by Pastor James Campbell. Now let me say this, I never
heard of this man before, but my God could he preach. The walls were about to
come down it was so electric in that church. Being in the back of that church balcony
was a blessing because I was able to witness the explosive reaction that ripped
thru everyone in the church.
This ceremony was very filling. It was a celebration of a great man, but I also
realized it's an example of a person who found his purpose. We all should
find out what ours is. Some are more obvious than others, but we all should
invest some time in finding what it is.

Dorian Fiddler, son of Amp Fiddler passed away suddenly friday. I've known Amp for many years and consider him a friend. He and I have performed several times together thru the years, and his son was always with him. Amp is an amazing father and I always appreciate the bond he had and showed with his son, Dorian. Please keep Amp and his family in your prayers. Dorian was young. Between the age 16 - 19. In general he was taken from us way too soon.
