Memphis Grizzlies Zach Randolph Gives His Shirt to Special Needs Fan (Video)


Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph was caught on camera literally giving the shirt off his back to a young special needs fan on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies were being beat by the Oklahoma City Thunder by 21 points, with only five minutes left in the game, when Randolph handed his shirt to the young man who was reaching for it, notes CBS Sports (video below).

"We talk about Zach Randolph and what a good guy he is," said one of the TV commentators. "That's so cool," added another commentator.

This random act of kindness has gone viral on the web with over 90,000 views on YouTube.

According to Yahoo! News, Randolph has also paid people's electric and heating bills, and gave $10,000 to save an injured dog.

Kia Motors and the NBA honored Randolph for his generosity in November with the "Kia Community Assist Award." reports that in November, Randolph gave out 900 Thanksgiving food baskets at two high schools in Memphis, donated 500 turkeys and 500 hams to a community center in Marion, Ind. and paid for 300 winter coats for students at a Memphis elementary school.
