Boston Celtics Jayson Tatum remembers Lou Brock with sneaker message: 'one of the best ever'

Jayson Tatum's message for the late Lou Brock on his sneakers worn during Game 5 of the Boston Celtics semifinal series against the Toronto Raptors.

St. Louis Cardinals legend Lou Brock passed away on Sunday.

There are few people who adore their hometowns with reverence of St. Louis native Jayson Tatum, so when Brock passed, it touched Tatum, even though he’s much too young to have seen anything but grainy highlights from Brock’s career.

In Monday night’s Eastern Conference Semifinals Game 5 , he wore a special pair of his Air Jordan 34 sneakers in Cardinals colors, and wrote “RIP Lou Brock” on them to honor his memory.

Tatum has run charity drives to help his home town, teaming up with fellow St. Louis native Bradley Beal for some.
