I am deeply sad to find that you have passed. Coming from a rough neighborhood and a drug and alcohol filled home as I child, I was 12 years old when I first watched Basketball Diaries and it literally saved my life! Your book was my bible for along time and it was a life goal of mine to shake your hand. Thank you for continuing to inspire! You will be missed.

Watching basketball diaries for the millionth time tonight. Reminding me that you will forever live on and this is just a small piece of your legacy.

I never met or knew of you until after you died. You were before my time, but your work has left an impression on me. Thank you, Jim. Much love and appreciation.

Meeting you at the reading for Book of Nods at BU was a major highlight of my teenage years. I think about you often. Your diary made it impossible for me to ever try hard drugs. I thank you for that, now that I'm in my 40's and feel out of the woods.
