Video: Tony Parker drains halfcourt shot to help kid out

Sep 4, 2012, 11:23 AM EDT

Tony Parker is a charitable guy. He wants to help out the world’s youth and took part in Boris Diaw‘s Babac’Ards organization charitable event last week in France. Parker doesn’t think any child should have to go without a large, expensive watch that will not fit him properly for a decade or more.

So when this young French boy — we don’t know his real name but will call him Marius Pontmercy — misses a half-court shot he is not strong enough to hit, Parker steps up and drains it. The crowd goes wild and the boy gets a watch his father will wear. Everyone is happy.

Hat tip to Ball Don’t Lie for finding the video.

    Yeah, he is such a charitable guy. Maybe he can take that money he’s suing the nightclub he was at when a fight broke out and cut him instead of suing the idiots that were fighting could be donated to a good cause.

      for all you know he may donate the money he could potentially win from the lawsuit to charity much like celebritys do when they sue gossip rags. most of that cash goes to charity not to line their pockets. take your trolling cynicism elsewhere and don’t ruin this nice innocent moment.

    This is an awesome story, the kid’s reaction is great. I’m not a fan of Tebow’s football skills, but I think he said it best when he described professional sports as a platform to do something truly worthwhile with your life – I.E. charities that make society better.
