Cameron Moore RumorsAll NBA Players
And he’s thinking about ways to help the homeless in Los Angeles and hosting an event to honor his close friend from middle school, Cameron Moore. He passed away in October from heart complications during his first practice with the Macedonian club KK-AV Ohrid. In 2015, he was first diagnosed with cardiomegaly, an enlarged heart, when he was playing in the D-League. “That was my dog. He was my running mate. He always had my back—always,” said Clarkson, who writes his name and number on his sneakers for every game. “He had just left [to Macedonia] because he was out here the whole summer with me. I’m dedicating this year to him because he was a Lakers fan, Kobe fan. So it’s crazy that I got chosen by the Lakers. I’m just trying to do my best for him.”
Basketball became a way for Jordan Clarkson to escape on Saturday. One of his best friends, Cameron Moore, died last week, and Clarkson attended his funeral on Friday. “It’s been a tough 48 hours for me,” Clarkson said. “But I try to … use the court as a getaway right now.”
The team’s legal representative, Ivo Markoski, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the 25-year-old Moore arrived in Ohrid late Monday from Venice, Italy. He said the player had been in Ohrid, a tourist resort town in southern Macedonia, for about 24 hours and the death occurred Tuesday. Ohrid police spokesman Stefan Dimeski confirmed an American basketball player died suddenly late Tuesday, but did not release his identity citing an ongoing forensic investigation into the death. Dimeski said the player collapsed during practice and was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
