Knicks Stars Mourn Dean Meminger at Funeral in Harlem
The former point guard, who played on the Knicks 1973 NBA championship team, was found dead on Aug. 23 inside the Hamilton Heights Casablanca Hotel on 145th Street.
His cause of death was still being determined, officials from the Medical Examiner's office said.
"When I first got here to New York Dean was my roommate," said Monroe during the funeral, NY1 reported. "We've been through a whole lot together, and it's just a sad day today, but at the same time we're going to be celebrating his life."
