The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Indiana Pacers in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference first round series. LeBron James came up with 46 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, and two steals on 17-24 shooting. All of the attention, however, quickly shifted to some devastating news.

Earlier during the game, the San Antonio Spurs released news that Gregg Popovich’s wife, Erin had passed away after a long battle with an illness.

After the Cavs win, James was asked about the news of Erin Popovich’s passing.

“Oh man. Sh*t. I’m a huge Pop fan, i love Pop. Thats such a tragedy. My best wishes go out to Pop and his family. I know thats devastating news.”

James, along with the entire NBA family, mourns the passing of Popovich. Earlier today, many NBA players shockingly reacted to Erin’s passing, including Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Popovich and his entire family as try to get through this difficult time.
