With his dedication to his family, it, therefore, came as no surprise that when his grandmother passed away earlier this year, Harrell was heartbroken.

Following her passing, Harrell's team, the Los Angeles Clippers gave him time off to grieve the heartbreaking loss of his grandma.

For him, these memories are his favorite and he would carry them in his heart for a lifetime. While he might still feel the pain in his heart, Harrell continues to love and honor his late grandmother in the best ways that he can.
