BJ Boston and Terrence Clarke weren’t just friends. They weren’t just teammates.
They were brothers.
Ever since the two basketball stars signed to play with Kentucky, they were inseparable. They spent the 2020 offseason training together during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure they had great chemistry when it was time to finally suit up together for the Kentucky Wildcats.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see nearly enough of that, as Clarke suffered an injury that led to him missing much of his lone season at Kentucky.
Once the season ended, both players declared for the NBA Draft and signed with Klutch Sports agency in Los Angeles. They remained inseparable as they trained together and were on the cusp of having their dreams of being drafted into the NBA realized.
Sadly, Clarke would lose his life in a fatal car crash at the age of 19 in April, and Boston was driving behind Clarke when it happened.
Now, Boston has revealed (via TMZ) he got a tattoo in memory of Clarke, which you can see below.

Boston was ultimately selected in the second round of this year’s NBA Draft by the Los Angeles Clippers, while Clarke was an honorary selection of the NBA.
