Just a month ago, Aaron “AC” Chan was a participant in the Dolphin Park Classic’s Dunk Contest. But last weekend, his life was cut short as he was tragically murdered outside of a Vancouver nightclub. AC was an aspiring musician, who was well known in basketball circles across the Lower Mainland. He was just 25-years-old.

I didn’t know him personally, but loved watching him play pickup at the Thompson Community Centre courts (home of the Dolphin Tournament). In fact I saw him there just a few weeks ago. His game was legit. At barely 6-feet, Chan could handle, shoot, drop dimes and boy he could get up. AC was definitely was flashy. Every pass, lay-up and cram had a little mustard on it. He was always having fun out there and was always smiling, you could tell he loved the game. It truly is a shame to see such a promising life come to an end. RIP AC!

    Ditto what Bobbito said. Never know when your time is up.

    Check out AC at the 2004 Dolphin Park Dunk Contest. Great Dunks. He performed in front of Steve Nash and Jamal Crawford.

    R.I.P AC and my condolences to his family. I firmly believe that Heaven is a Playground, and AC is somewhere crossin’ and bangin’ on cats!
