I’ve always been the biggest JJ Redick fan & we all know about how crazy Deah was about Steph Curry. We would always argue about who the greatest shooter was between them. Last year’s playoff battle between the Clippers & Warriors was tense and fun between us. We were making plans of watching the All-Star 3-point shootout together this weekend, with JJ & Steph both competing.

I wish I could see Deah’s face light up with that beautiful smile, hear that goofy, giddy laugh when Curry not only won the 3-point contest handily, but then shouted out to him afterwards.

I guess you won after all, Deah. No surprise there.

If there’s any justice in this world and beyond it, you’re far too busy enjoying the highest levels of heaven to bother with reading this – but in the event that you do – I love you, bro. You were a good man and a great soul. You were great at Super Smash Brothers and were one of the only people I knew who could beat my dad one-on-one at basketball. It was a privilege getting to grow up as your neighbor, and an honor to know you as my friend. You were by your living testimony an exemplary ambassador of your faith, and you made me in turn want to be a better ambassador of mine. I’m filled with an indescribable rage towards the person who did this, but I know by your example that you would advocate a higher road than that, so I’m trying not to be. I don’t have the words to even begin to describe the respect that your memory is owed. I hope and pray that I’ll see you again in the hereafter, and promise to do my best to live up to the example that you set while you were here. I’ll miss you, homie.

I was raising money for a clinic in Afghanistan and Deah was probably one of the first, if not the first, to donate to the cause right away. No questions asked, he just did it and I will always remember that about him!
