More on Terrence Clark Death

Clarke had gotten a high-end Heron Preston NASA puffer jacket and was so proud of it he kept it on even when he went to get shots up in the Garden after a game. NBA life was rapidly approaching and he was soaking it all in, looking out to the empty stands, hoping he would be playing on the parquet floor soon. After games I would introduce him to players he hadn’t met, but he didn’t need an introduction. They were all too familiar with his game from Ball is Life Instagram posts and were already telling him what he was going to do when he got to the league.
While he was a kid gravitating to the bright lights, Clarke remained humble and grateful through it all. He seemed incapable of being anything but happy and engaging. He truly lived life carefree, never phased by whatever hurdles were crossing his path. He was so confident in his gifts and the person he was that he didn’t need to be anything else to get where he wanted in life.
