Okay, well enlighten me.  I ain't hip to what the term "side pieces" means.  I'm not young anymore.

Ren certainly had side pieces and even carried them in public during the day time. Pretty disrespectful so you can only imagine what the household atmosphere was like. Not that he deserved what he got.

Most professional athletes got side pieces and thots all over the place. That's nothing new an dthe overwhelming majority of the women put up with it for the lifestyle, which quite honestly isn't any different from the avg household. I think the last statistic i saw said like roughly 60% of married men admit to cheat and over 50% of married women. That's not uncommon at all and especially not with professional athletes. i definitely don't think it leads to abuse in the home.

I was mainly talking about that cockamamie story about mysterious men visiting their house looking for Ren and him leaving with a box of drugs. All fo that stuff was clearly made up to cover her tracks. She was the one trying to kill him, not anyone else.

I agree that a lot do it but how many OPENLY carry around side pieces? Most atleast try to hide it from your partner and in Memphis a guy like Ren with hus status knows full well it will get back to his wife. Im saying when you dont respect your partner enough to even try to hide it, your home must have a bunch of turbulance.

I dont know why she thought so little of her husband and kids father, but I do know if you publically embarass a woman by doing stuff like that then its 10x worse than just cheating.

Well, I don't know about you but I have lived in multiple cities with major league sports team and/or spent a lot of time in them. I don't think it's as rare as you think. People don't care. They got money. I'll just leave it there because I could tell stories.

If that was the problem she should have moved on. They had already divorced. I have a hard time believing that was the problem when she spent the majority of the $1mil insurance policy for the kids on herself, not only that she apparently tried to kill him before as well. Sometimes, evil is just evil, no other explanation needed.

Lol you arent getting what Im saying. Its not really the act itself. If two sides "dont care" enough to even hide in any marriage it then it cant be a very strong relationship. They arent even faking it anymore at that point. They probably didnt like either other much. The way Rens mama wanted her gone tells me it wasnt the best relationship either.

Agreed. I would say a lot of people in general are evil though but evil women are much more likely to get a pass in society, especially if they come up with a story saying they were treated wrongly. They get a lot more sympathy from society than evil men.

Well, I agree with that to a certain degree but you're making an assumption on why they got married in the first place. I have no idea. People get married for all types of reason from financial stability to fame and fortune to satisfy society so they won't be judged to a baby is on the way,  etc etc etc and once they get married they have their own rules, there are a lot of open marriages out there. I don't judge other people's marriages from the outside because you never know the terms of someone's marriage or why they were married in the first place. i mean, she started dating Ren when he was in hs and she was at the age she should have been graduating college. From what I heard, she was very controlling of him from the get go. Also, open infidelity doesn't necessarily mean there are problems in the marriage, a lot of people (both men and women) put up with that and stay whether it's for money or it doesn't bother them because they are cheating themselves or they have an arrangement or whatever. Once again, pro athletes are a different breed and open cheating isn't uncommon and it may not even point to problems in the relationship. it depends on the couple and every couple is different. 

I think all of this is a moot point thought because the Wrights got divorced and shortly after the got divorced she tried to kill him in Atlanta. She was charged with attempted 1st degree murder as well because there is ample evidence that  her and that guy tried to kill Ren in Atlanta earlier in 2010. And then they finally killed him later that year. I don't think that's a woman scorned. I think it's a pure evil POS who was money hungry but that's just my opinion.

I'm not excusing Ren on his side pieces but if it's true that she used the money on herself that was meant for her kids she is a cold piece of work and I don't blame him for stepping out.

Wright's wiki page; "Wright left his ex-wife's home in Collierville, Tennessee on the night of July 18, 2010 with drugs and unspecified amount of money, and was not seen or heard from again.[5] His family filed a missing persons report on July 22."

I have seen nothing in print claiming that drugs were not a factor in his death, have you? Maybe there is more to it, maybe there isn't. There are your suspicions and what has been reported. No offense, but I'm believing wiki over your suspicions.

On 12/9/2017 at 2:14 PM, Father Pat said:

You left out some "facts". Both Wright and his ex-wife were in debt. Not only had Wright burned through his 55+ million in career earnings, but he had just lost houses in Memphis and Atlanta for non payment. Wright's body was found still wearing an expensive watch and jewelry, indicating to law enforcement that it was not likely a robbery. Some in Wright's crew had gang ties (brother in law to Bobby Cole, who went away for drug trafficking, who Wright had sold a couple of his cars to that were turned over to the DEA because they were bought with drug money - full story in S.I.). Wright's murder was being investigated by the Memphis gang unit, not the homicide division. Wright's accused killer was arrested by the gang unit as well.

Again, I was going by what was reported. You have tried to diminish what was reported based on your personal suspicions. Your suspicions and my suspicions do not matter. I have a suspicion that the ex-wife was involved based on her claim that people showed up at her house looking to collect money from Wright, a few days later he flies in from Atlanta and is promptly murdered. That is just a suspicion of mine and does not matter.

Here is a good article about it done by S.I. from a couple years ago: https://www.si.com/nba/2015/10/19/lorenzen-wright-murder-mystery-memphis-grizzlies

 

Just wondering, do you have any additional commentary in light of this latest arrest? Sherra Wright's cousin, who has already killed one person before. i mean, just wondering or are you sticking to her story that she told and pushed out to the media?

I'm surprised he don't have additional commentary. He just knew that he was killed because of drugs.

Gangs = drugs. The investigation and arrests were done by the gang unit, not the homicide unit. Evidently some posters do not realize the significance of that fact.

Could you explain the significance of that fact inspector Gadget? . So you're saying any person killed by someone arrested by the Gang Unit must be a gang banger and drug dealer? That's your conclusion? So there's no way in the world that a gang member could kill someone who is not in a gang? That's your story huh? Boy, I see why so many innocent people are locked up America's prisons with people like you on the jury. 

This is beyond amazing. You have no explanation for why the MPD has charged her, her ex-bf and her cousin with attempted murder because they have sufficient evidence that they tried to kill him in his Atlanta home a few months prior. You have no explanation for why the MPD has charged her, her ex-bf and her cousin with murder because they have sufficient evidence that they killed him. You have no explanation as to why nothing in her story pans out. You just want to stick to her comments that he left with a box full of drugs, which by the way, she said awhile back, that she never said that and that the MPD twisted her words. In that 48 hours piece even her ex-husband believes she did it.

Having one of the accused confessing does help the investigation.

What the heck is your problem??? Pull your head out of your backside and explain where I said he was a gang banger or drug dealer. My very first post on this thread was a response to why no one was coming forward. It happened to be the same response that investigators and reporters made. It was the common perception at the time. That's why I put it in quotations. 

If you want to get emotionally bent and make negative assumptions about me, that is your failing, not mine. If you fail to see any possible significance in the facts that I mentioned, again, that is your failing, not mine. Deal with it in a mature manner.

But of course. The guy is singling like a canary and it's no coincidence that the gun was found in a random lake in MS just as he said it would be.

I have no problem and i'm not getting emotional. I just don't understand why you keep bringing up gangs and drugs and basically attacking a dead person's character. I don't think Billy Graham was the salt of the earth but i'm not going to attack him because he's dead. I'm pretty sure they had a rocky relationship, I remember hearing things back in the 90's. I just don't understand how you continue to hang on to words mentioned by her when she's sitting in a prison awaiting trial for murder and attempted murder because MPD has found ample evidence that she was involved. Why keep bringing up drugs and gangs when even Sherra Wright claims she didn't say he left with a box of drugs. I just don't understand.

Yeah, in a high profile murder case like this they have a stack of evidence. More than what they are showing on TV. A whole lot more. Its been 7 years of research. The public pressure was off so they didnt miss a dot. She is guilty for sure, but I believe she has Mary Winklers lawyer or somebody high profile who might get her off.

I pointed out what was stated on Wiki, and the fact that the investigation was done by the gang unit. For whatever reason, your brain is seeing that as an attack on a dead person and being defensive for the accused. Back in December I said that she probably was involved, but you chose to ignore that and run with your crazy conclusions attributed to me. You fail to realize that no one on these boards, including me and you, know everything about this case. The police have said that this is one of their highest profile murder cases in many years, and the fact that the gang unit is in charge of it is significant. Without putting words in my mouth, how can you not agree with that?  If it wasn't significant then the homicide unit would have handled it. Stating that fact is not calling Ren a gang banger or drug dealer, as you have claimed. It means that there is much more about the whole story than a basic murder for hire scenario.
