NBA world mourns the passing of Chadwick Boseman

On Saturday morning, 43-year-old Chadwick Boseman passed away, with his wife and family by his side, according to a statement posted on his Twitter account.

The actor, who brought the iconic role of 'Black Panther' to life, was a great friend of the NBA family and was most recently, a judge for the AT&T Slam Dunk Contest at the 2020 All-Star Weekend in Chicago.

NBA players - past and present - were among the many that mourned and reacted to his tragic death.
