Twice in the last year, in two different countries, Loyd has been in quarantine due to COVID-19, including in December and January when he wrestled with fever, chills and a loss of taste and smell in his Belgrade apartment, thousands of miles away from his family home in suburban Atlanta. Also somewhere in the U.S., though Loyd won’t say where, precisely, for fear someone might come looking for it, he has his 2019 NBA championship ring from the Raptors. He was the last member of that title team to see his ring, because he was in Spain until July 2020. At Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, he is featured prominently in a mural of Leonard’s miraculous shot. “People even message it to me on social media, like I haven’t seen it before,” Loyd said. So, how in the hell, exactly, did Loyd’s life take this path, from obscurity to NBA champion to where he is now? It started with a $240,000 buyout from his father.
