McDonough, Georgia- Patrick Martin was shopping for a new laptop at Best Buy and crossed paths with Shaq. What happens next is a tale that makes me smile. Think about what an amazing place the world could be if we all were kind to each other.
Mr. Martin saw Shaq across the aisle, knowing the loss of his friend Kobe Bryant and sister Ayesha Harrison-Jex must be heavy on his heart, Martin offered his condolences and walked away.
Minutes later Shaq walked back up to Patrick and showed his gratitude. He
“We walked off, then Shaq comes to us and says, “I like ya’ll, so get the nicest one in here and I’ll pay for it.””
What a dope thing have happen and it just shows off the magic that is the human spirit.
On a side note Shaq decided to go through with his Super Bowl party and honor Kobe’s life with a grand celebration. He also donated all of the proceeds from his annual Fun House event to the families affected in the helicopter tragedy.
“I’ll be dedicating and donating all my proceeds from Friday nights Fun House to all the families who lost loved ones and to the Kobe and Vanessa Bryant Foundation. Together we will celebrate all those who lost their lives in Sunday’s tragedy. R.I.P. my brother, my friend and my homie, The Black Mamba. Until we meet again.”
