During the 1998 NBA lockout, he practiced at the RDV Sportsplex, with several NBA players while living in Orlando, FLA. Carey had no problem keeping up with the best of them. He was the greatest New England sports fan. We the family believe the combination of Tom Brady leaving the Patriots and the cancellation of all sports due to the Corona Virus, persuaded him to make an early departure.
