Today, large on his left shoulder, is a tattoo featuring the childhood face of his young brother, Bear, supported by a disproportionately smaller body draped in a Superman costume.
On his right triceps is an El Dorado called a “slab,” with an open trunk that says “Welcome to Texas.” That tattoo isn’t finished — it’s supposed to be an ode to his hometown of San Antonio.
The back of his right arm is covered by a memorial to one of his best friends, Cameron Moore, who died on the court while playing professional basketball in Eastern Europe in 2016.
