In a lengthy Instagram post, Murray said that Nate told him he was depressed, prompting the teen to relocated from Seattle to the Alamo City. Since then, Murray has been a father figure to Nate. The Spurs star went on to commend his brother for being "the most respectful person I ever met" and finishing high school with a 3.8 GPA.
Plenty of folks joined in the online congratulations, adding that Murray's Instagram post hit them right in the feels.

San Antonio is the most luckiest city to have such a humble player. I pray that God keeps his game for our city and for his family!— Queen Shnat 👑😇 (@QueenShnat) June 10, 2019
