If he's not, he 100% should be. It's actually crazy if he's not already.


Didn't he go to the NBA early? He might not have graduated. Which always runs into problems, cause they tie it to graduation still, correct?. Isn't that why it took Trent two decades + to get recognition? Why DJ will never get recognition?


He played four years. No idea if he actually graduated.


He 100% graduated on schedule, I gave him a high five that day and can still picture him in the cap and gown.


Very cool!

I feel like a 34 patch is in order for jerseys this season in his honor.

This so terrible. And then you see the ages of his children and it gets worse.

Apparently he collapsed at the end of a yoga session. My son heard that small detail on a radio news show he was listening to.

Someone help me out here. Why wasn't #34 already in the rafters? He clearly has the numbers that are deserving and he did graduate...so what is the issue? Very sad week to be a Bobcat. Thinking of his family.

It was a hot yoga session, which I can attest are not easy by any means with temps ranging between 95-100 degrees, usually in small rooms with no circulation. I can't imagine a man with Brandon's athletic history that he would have much trouble with that, but I can also see where it would not be safe for the faint of heart.

Youd think with that mountain of stats hed be a sure fire pick to have his number retired. I just hope we do something to honor him first home game of the year. 34 patches for the whole year, tribute video, heck, even retire his number! He more than deserves it. Still shaken about this whole deal. Saw him a year ago when he was inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame - still looked like he was in amazing shape.
