ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A few months back, Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard picked up a young kid during pregame warmups and helped him dunk the ball. That was apparently just the start of a great friendship. That young fan, James Fisher, was battling cancer, and Howard bonded with the boy. Fisher passed away yesterday, and Dwight took to Instagram to say goodbye.
Rest in peace lil James Fisher. He passed away a couple hours ago. He was the little kid I picked up to dunk a couple of months ago during pregame warmups. He also gave me the rubber band that says James strong. He was such an inspiration to me and my teammates. I have worn the band everyday since he gave it to me and I will continue to wear this band. You are in a better place. No more pain. No more hospital visits. Just peace love and happiness. And you can dunk as many times as u want. See u in heaven James. 💯🙏🙏
