Pascal Siakam celebrates Father’s Day with beautiful artwork of his late father
If you’ve been following the Toronto Raptors for a while, then you’ll be familiar with the role that Pascal Siakam’s late father plays in his son’s NBA journey. Tchamo Siakam passed away in 2014 due to a car crash, and to this day, making dad proud remains a source of motivation for Pascal.
To celebrate Father’s Day, Siakam shared a beautiful depiction of himself and his dad from the artist Casey Bannerman, adding on Twitter, “Doing it for you.”
Siakam has spoken in the past about the role that his father had in getting him to play basketball and eventually land a scholarship at New Mexico State. Tragically, Siakam’s dad passed away before he was able to watch his son suit up in the NBA, but upon every accolade he earns — and he already has many in his young career — Pascal continues to do it for dad.
