One more reason why CP3 is my hero

I happen to have seats next to the Clippers tunnel where the Clip players enter the court from the locker room. After Wednesday night’s glorious victory, I was fortunate enough to see something that most fans missed. After CP3’s interview on ESPN, he was walking past the bench and into the tunnel when he saw a nine year old boy in my row who was holding out his hand for a high five. When CP3 saw this, he literally stopped and took off his wristband and walked up and gave it to the kid. He didn’t toss it or throw it into the crowd as many players do – he walked up and handed it to the kid.

But then it got even better, because as he turned again to the tunnel he saw a man wearing a CP3 Hornets jersey. The guy wasn’t trying to get CP3’s attention – he was just at the tunnel trying to get a look. Chris stopped dead in his tracks, said something to him, and then proceeded to take off his jersey – the one he had just worn while beating the Heat – and handed it to this guy as a reward for wearing the Hornets jersey. The fan was speechless, walked a few steps away and then held the jersey in front of him as if he couldn’t believe his good fortune.

The moral of the story? CP3 is my new hero. And not just for basketball reasons.
