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.

The crash took place shortly after 2 p.m. northwest of downtown when a vehicle turning onto Nordhoff Street was broadsided by another car that had been traveling on Winnetka Avenue and had run a red light, Officer William Cooper, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department, said Thursday night. He said that the driver of the car that was broadsided, whom he could not identify, had later died from injuries sustained in the crash. Additional details on the accident were not immediately available.

Clarke would have entered the NBA Draft in three months. He was close with multiple members of the Celtics, including Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker. Walker was asked about Clarke after Thursday’s game. “Very, very, very tough,” Walker said. “Very tough news, man. He’s a very, very good kid. Just always smiling, always energetic. And he was about to get his opportunity, too. My condolences to his family. It’s a tough time, man. That’s really tough news to hear.”
