Reports has it that the basketballer father wanted him to marry an African American woman who would share the same value with him.
The fact that he won his championship in his father’s hometown without his father’s support became so emotional for him. The picture says it all. Another reason for his sadness was also known to could have been his deteriorating relationship with Shaq.
