John Wall Lost His 6-Year-Old Friend, And A Reporter Questioned Him About It

John Wall is a wonderful person.

Some athletes are just easy to love. John Wall is one of them. 

The 24-year-old Washington Wizards guard broke down after a game on Monday, crying for a girl he met less than a year ago. Who could blame him? At just 6-years-old, Miyah Telemaque-Nelson died of cancer Monday morning. 

Wall and Telemaque-Nelson had become very close after her diagnosis, and he had been playing with her name written on his shoes for much of the season. It's unfortunate Wall had to answer questions about her so shortly after her death, but we're glad it just revealed how genuine his care for her was. 

After the game, Wall took to Twitter:


Our thoughts and prayers are with Miyah's entire family. We hope the outpouring of love to your family can give you strength.
