San Antonio Spurs Dejounte Murray reconnected with his estranged dad for Father’s Day.
The NBA star gave his dad the ultimate Father’s Day gift. Murray and his father’s relationship have been estranged over the years. However, Murray decided this was the year to put the past aside.
Murray shared a touching video on social media, showing him reuniting with his dad and shedding tears of joy. The two were embraced by family who was there to witness the special moment.
“We had our differences for almost 7-8 years,” Murray wrote. “I just want a relationship with my Dad before it’s too late and not have one of us living with regrets of not being a man and fixing the problems we had.”
He continued, “I love you Dad more than you will ever know and thank you for taking ownership on why you wasn’t there as much as I wanted you to be as a kid but what matters is focusing on what’s right and that’s fixing our son/father relationship RIGHT NOW.”
To make the moment even sweeter, it was also Murray’s dad’s birthday and the Spurs guard gifted him a new truck.
Father Murray commented on the post and expressed his gratitude for his son. He also thanked his son on Twitter with pictures from the moment.
“Thank You Son @DejounteMurray I’m thankful for everything you do…. For everybody…. You have the biggest heart and patience that a man can have. Happy Father’s Day Son and see you tomorrow 🙏🏾
