Otto Porter bought lunch for a homeless man

Otto Porter

Some of the time, NBA players are cast in the light of uncaring/egotistical millionaires but most of the players in the NBA are caring/nice people.

Recently, Otto Porter of the Washington Wizards did a good deal for a homeless man just wanting a sandwich and thanks to a Letters To The Editor section of the Washington Post, we got to hear about the story from reader Michael Stein:

On Friday, during a very stressful week for Washington, I looked to escape the madness for 30 minutes on what was a warm fall afternoon. I was reading The Post and eating a quick lunch at a table outside a local sandwich shop while a disheveled homeless man sat nearby, persistently and unsuccessfully asking anyone who walked by if he or she could “spare a sandwich.”

After about 25 minutes, Otto Porter Jr., the Georgetown basketball star and the Washington Wizards’ newest first-round draft pick, drove up, hopped out of his car and entered the shop. Mr. Porter soon exited with his sandwich and drink — but also with a sandwich, a bag of chips and a drink for the homeless man. Mr. Porter then sat down next to the man, and they both enjoyed their sandwiches while making small talk.

Classy move Otto, Classy Move!
