El Paso Coronado high school basketball manager Mitchell Marcus from the ultimate sportsmanship story of the year, got to see the pros play up close and personal on Sunday. Mitchell, his coach and his new friend Jon Montanez, from the opposing team who passed him the ball in the closing seconds of a basketball game to get him a made field goal, his first ever, accompanied Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun for a courtside view courtesy of Chris Paul for the Clippers vs. Thunder matchup. Postgame, the boys got to meet All-Stars CP3 and Kevin Durant, and even went home with some pretty sweet swag:
@scooterbraun that’s one of the best things I’ve ever seen…I’m EXCITED for our plan for those kids!!!
