"Today marks the 12 year anniversary of the day I lost the greatest man I've ever known. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. And not a day goes by that I don't miss you. You are the reason I am where I am. You are the reason I do what I do. I go through every game knowing that you are by my side. Im gonna make you proud dad. I love you. And miss you"
It's clear that Josh gives so much priority to his family and besides his rough playing skills on basketball court, he is a soft hearted man.
