August 15, 2017 "I grew up watching " Nate the Great" he was truly one of the greatest big man that ever played the game, bar none. I lived in Tacoma, Wa, and i would attend most of the games when the Warriors played at the Seattle Supersonics. Of course I was there to see Big Nate. Nate was my idol and i tried to emulate my game after him but in reality there was only one Nate. He was a class act both on and off the court. I was saddened to here of his passing. I told one of my brothers of his passing and the first thing he said was Nate the great! He in my eyes was the most popular Warrior ever. He will be missed. Rest in peace "NATE THE GREAT."" - wayne robinson (orlando, FL)
August 07, 2016 "A Central High school classmate. A quiet and yet engaging homeroom classmate. I sat next to him in homeroom for 3 years and played basketball with him during my freshman and sophomore years. I play football, basketball and track and Nate always gave me "high fives" and I gave him accolades back! I visited his restaurant in San Francisco and always had a free-of-charge meal during that time and we would set together, at his restaurant.

He was a soft, gentle and reflective man. I am in Sacramento and he in San Francisco... yes, I regret we did not spend more time together.
Love you "Big Nate!"
