At the wake, his body was sitting in a chair, surrounded by his favorite snacks, video controller in his hand and an "NBA 2K Showdown" game being auto-played in front of him. "Temeka Matthews also said that her son was a big fan of Celtics guard Kyrie Irving". I think it also speaks to the way being a gamer can be such a core part to our identities.
