Yeng Guiao thought “Paul got fouled in the last play,” while Tim Cone wasn’t sure because he was “too far away” from the play. Was there a foul? Did Lee initiate contact? Did he travel?

We’re sure you’ve seen this already but it’s hard not to watch it again and again. Such a fitting tribute to a young man, whose NBA dream was prematurely crushed by an unforeseen circumstance. If this doesn’t get you at least a little choked up, then you have a heart made out of whatever material they use for making submarines.
