NBA: Playoffs-Los Angeles Clippers at Memphis Grizzlies

Slowly more and more details are coming out about the fatal car crash that killed Paul Walker.  Yesterday we learned who the driver of the Porsche was — Roger Rodas (a close friend and business partner – see here for more info).  Well it looks like Clippers baller Chris Paul had a connection with Rodger.  He took to Instagram to react to the sad news.  Details after the jump…





Via TMZ:

L.A. Clippers superstar Chris Paul says the driver in the Paul Walker crash was a friend of his — and says he will “always be grateful for the friendship.”

As we previously reported, the man driving the Porsche that crashed in Valencia, CA yesterday was Roger Rodas — who worked with Paul to create a charity organization and helped him launch his car shop.

CP3 went to Instagram to pay tribute to both men — writing, “Prayers to the families of my friends Roger Rodas and Paul Walker … I’m forever grateful for the friendship and you will never be forgotten!”

It’s unclear how CP3 and Roger knew each other.
