LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul treated two basketball-loving Texas teenagers to an NBA game after a video of one boy's generosity to a special needs player on the opposing team went viral.
Mitchell Marcus, a senior at Coronado High in El Paso, Texas, and Jonathon Montanez, a senior at Franklin High, sat courtside at Sunday's game against Oklahoma City as guests of Paul. Accompanying them was Coronado coach Peter Morales, along with the boys' families, and Scooter Braun, who manages pop sensation Justin Beiber.
Marcus, a special needs student and an avid basketball fan, has been team manager of the Coronado Thunderbirds for three years. Morales gave Marcus a chance to play with 90 seconds left in the last game of the season.
Marcus missed his first shot and the ball went out of bounds, giving Franklin High possession. Trailing by 10 points, Montanez tossed Marcus the ball with 13 seconds left. Marcus scored, the crowd went wild and a video of Marcus' basket went viral.
