Larry Nance Jr. Reconnects With Pen Pal After 14 Years


This already is one of my favorite off-season stories.

14 years ago, when Larry Nance Jr. was a ten year old kid, his school class wrote letters to soldiers. The soldier, Bianca Snow, who was receiving Nance’s letters, kept little Larry’s letters all these years and now reached out to him on Twitter. She wrote:


“Many moons ago u were my pen pal during my tour overseas. It always meant alot, still have the letters. Glad your dreams came tru.”



A closer look on Nance’s letters:


First letter:

Dear U.S. Soldier, My name is Larry Nance. I have 1 sister, 1 brother that annoy me all the time. My dad played in the NBA. Thank you for fighting for us in the war. You must be brave and miss your family. I hope you get home soon and see your family soon. Good luck. Sincerely, Larry Nance


Second letter:

Dear U.S. Soldier is the war almost over? Where is Saddam? How are you? I’m fine. Thank you for writing back. Where are you?Are you good at basketball? I like the Lakers too they are wining there series with the Timberwolves. Who is your favorite player? Mine is Shaq. Who do you want to get LeBron James? I want the Cavs to get LeBron, that is because my dad played for the Cavs. His number is retired in the Gund Arena. And Again Thank you!! from, Larry Nance


Larry Nance Jr. saw the message and replied to Bianca, inviting her to a game this year, and finally meeting her after 14 years.
