SportsCenter airs video chronicling Miyah's relationship with her family and John Wall

New, comment

Take a look at another side of Miyah Telemaque-Nelson's story here.

As you know, John Wall had a friendship with Miyah Telemaque-Nelson, a young girl who suffered from Burkitt's Lymphoma. Miyah, unfortunately, passed away on December 8, 2014.

Along the way, he helped her meet pop music superstar Nicki Minaj. He even participated a tribute walk in her honor this last October and missed a preseason game for it.

Though we are well aware of Wall's relationship with Miyah, many haven't had as much insight on her family's. ESPN's SportsCenter aired this featured video on Sunday. Her ten-year-old brother Kareem narrated the nearly ten-minute long video. Miyah's parents and Wall himself also were interviewed. The video is embedded above, or you can see it through this tweet below:

It's a really touching piece and something we recommend that you watch on this All-Star Valentine's Sunday.
