VIDEO: Nick Young takes the Jordans off his feet, signs them and gives to a kid


What a great moment for this kid.

During Nick Young’s back-to-school event this week, Swaggy P donated laptops, iPads, sneakers a barbecue and more, yet one 8-year-old boy got extra lucky. When the boy’s raffle ticket got called, Young whipped off his Air Jordans, signed them and then handed the shoes to the kid.

It’s great to see Nick giving back to the community. Who knows, these shoes may be worth a fair bit of money one day, especially if Young ends up having a successful career with the Lakers. Then again, the sentimental value will probably be higher than the monetary one.
