    OG, Kawhi and Pascal all lost their dad's at a young age? Wow sucks for all three.
    Take it from someone who's dad died when I was 22... it sucks a lot and if you were close to them you need a good head on your shoulders to navigate out of that first year or 2
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

        Make it four. FVV's father was killed when Fred was 5.
        If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

          Kyle never had a dad too, does that count?

            JV was raised by his mom too. Dad was not in the picture.

              Ya mine passed away at 26, I couldn't imagine it happening younger. To this day (10 years later) there is still things that come up. Major milestones that he's not at. Buying a home, Wedding day, birth of his grandkids, etc. I couldn't imagine being in the limelight, making money most people could never fathom and not have some of your family members there to see it.

              Someone made a point that the regular person doesn't have the same option to take time off and get help long after the incident. Which is valid, but the regular person might not be operating at 100%, and definitely isn't watched by millions as the go about their work.

                  And that's usually not really true if you have a decent employer. Most will give you a fair bit of time off at the time of passing..and I mean OG left for a week a few months later and is back now, most jobs with benefits and/or compassion are gonna let these issues work themselves out. I understand not everybody is in that situation and that's too bad because we all should be.

                  Cheers to you bro, thanks for sharing. Always nice to hear a human story come out from behind our basketball avatars.

                    Totally correct, I was referencing the recent departure. Not everyone would get the time off, but any employer with compassion could justify a decline in productivity and the need for some extra time off.

                    But ya it's always nice to see that there are real people behind these avatars.

                            It's scary how many kids are being raised in broken families around the World.

                              I once drank 11 straight days. Twas the calgary stampede of 2010.

                              Since that hangover I try to stay on load management program
