Washington Wizards guard John Wall broke down in tears during a post-game interview on Monday night when he was asked about his 6-year-old friend who died of cancer just hours before.
Wall befriended cancer patient Miyah Telemaque-Nelson last season and even arranged a meeting with rapper Nicki Minaj for the girl.
Wall scored 26 points and racked up 17 assists in his team’s Monday victory over the Boston Celtics in double overtime. When Wall was asked about Nelson after the game, he couldn’t keep his emotions in check as he literally collapsed to his knees mid-interview.
