Tearful John Wall Breaks Down After Emotional Post-Game Interview

Last year, Wizards star John Wall befriended 5-year-old cancer patient Miyah Telemaque-Nelson and helped her meet pop star Nicki Minaj.


Tragically, Miyah passed away on Monday, which Wall says was the inspiration for his spirited 26 points and 17 assists against the Celts.

After the game, Wall broke down as he tried to talk about the girl he came to know over the past year.
