I saw an interview with NBA star Karl Anthony-Townes a couple weeks ago on Newsy talking about his mom in the hospital in a coma suffering from COVID-19. It was heartbreaking.
She died today.
His father is recovering from COVID-19.
Thousands have died from COVID-19 and it really hits home when it’s someone you know. I don’t know Karl but he’s one of my favorite young players to watch. A North Jersey kid who many of us watched come up through the ranks.
I just pause to say how sad I am for him.
