Here's a story that will restore some faith in modern day sports stars and hopefully make your day that bit brighter.

The reigning NBA Rookie of the Year tweeted his regret about ignoring the young fan, and the latter was very understanding with his reply.

Naturally, Siros was delighted, as was his mum.


Damian Lillard: good guy
