All-Star NBA point guard John Wall scored 26 points against the Boston Celtics on Monday night, but that is not why he is in the news today.
Following the Washington Wizards’ victory over the Boston Celtics, Wall participated in a standard postgame interview. While he was likely prepared for questions about his performance that night, the one thing Wall wasn’t ready to talk about was the death of Miyah Telemaque-Nelson – a 6-year-old cancer patient he met last year. The two formed such a tight bond that, at one point, he helped arrange a meeting between her and musician Nicki Minaj.
Watch Wall try to battle through his emotions while discussing Telemaque-Nelson in the interview below.
