Our Condolences, Stanley Johnson & Family

You are a Detroit Piston, now, Stanley – and that means we’re your family, too. I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother and basketball mentor, Karen Taylor. According to The Detroit Free Press, “Taylor played basketball at Jackson State, where she was enshrined into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2009, as well as professionally in Denmark, Italy and Sweden. She also coached her son until he was 14,” (www.freep.com).

This summer, Taylor was able to see our Pistons select her son with the 8th pick in the NBA Draft. I promise we will take good care of him.

“I told him he didn’t break my (records) yet,” she said in an article [to espn]. “I still got the best jumper. Don’t get it twisted. He’s dunking and all that stuff. But he knows I had a flash.”

After battling breast cancer for more than 20 years, Taylor, 54, can rest in peace.
