Jonathan Tjarks Passing

NBA writer and podcaster for the ringer, Jonathan Tjarks, passed last weekend from a rare form of cancer at a very young age. Jon is survived by his wife and two year old son. I didn't see any post about his death, so I wanted to share his article, Does My Son Know You?, in which he writes really beautifully about his diagnosis and what mattered most to him near the end. I recommend anyone read it, it was a great reminder for me to treasure my friendships and call my dad.

Also, here's the GoFundMe for his family if you would like to donate.

And just for fun, here's a link to the NBA Show pod episode where Tjarks discussed Shaedon Sharpe's draft projection. Sharpe conversation starts at 8:20
