Probably the thing that has impressed me the most about Dean, despite all of his accomplishments, is the time he took for his young fans while in High School. According to Puffdad he would hang around for after game photo sessions so long that they would have go into the gym and get him so the team bus could head for St. John. Better guy than basketball player, right Puff?
