    NBA TV's Sekou Smith Dead at 48 After COVID Battle

    Longtime NBA reporter Sekou Smith -- a staple on NBA TV -- has died after battling COVID. He was only 48.

    "The NBA mourns the passing of Sekou Smith, a beloved member of the NBA family," the NBA said in a statement.

    "Sekou was one of the most affable and dedicated reporters in the NBA and a terrific friend to so many across the league."

    Smith covered basketball for more than 20 years -- and spent the last 11 years with Turner Sports where he excelled as a TV analyst, podcaster and writer.

    "Our heartfelt condolences go to his wife Heather and their children Gabriel, Rielly, and Cameron."

    Fellow NBA writer Marc J. Spears paid tribute to Sekou -- saying, "Thank you for your brotherly friendship, humor, honesty and compassion. Glad we had a chance to tell each other we loved each other three weeks ago."

    "You were a gift to this Earth as a friend, father and a man Sekou Smith. Rest In Peace to my brother. Prayers to your wife & family."
