Death – Obituary : A new report has claimed that Henry Batum has died. The cause of death has not yet been learned. We have not independently confirmed the death of Henry.
Henry Batum’s father, Richard Batum, died of a ruptured aneurysm while playing in basketball court. Speaking on the death of their father, one of Richard’s son said
“My father was a pro basketball player in France,” Batum said. “He passed away while playing in the game on the basketball court. I was 2 years old.
I was in the crowd with my mom when it happened. “That’s a terrible memory. I think about it sometimes. I just remember he got fouled and went back to the free-throw line to shoot his free throws, and then he was falling down at the free-throw line.
I can remember when my father went down, and I can remember later, when I wake up, all of the TV stations around and my mom crying and all the craziness going around. Here I was 2 years old, but I’ve got memories about it.”
