Brooklyn Nets Honor Superfan Who Passed Away (Video)
The Brooklyn Nets suffered a tragic loss over the weekend when superfan Jeffrey Vanchiro, a.k.a. Jeffrey Gamblero, passed away following a tragic fall from a second story window at his dad’s house in Queens.
Prior to tonight’s game against the Miami Heat, the Nets players came out in t-shirts with the name “Gamblero” and number 44 on the back—a tribute that moved many, including Jeffery’s fiancee, Kristi Evans:

And they even held a moment of silence and played a video tribute to Vanchiro on the jumbotron.
