NBA rookie Lonnie Walker is a stand-up guy.

He hasn’t even played a single minute in a real NBA game and he is already using his platform to help the less fortunate.

Walker, who is an Adidas athlete, teamed up with Eric Wise, the category director of merchandising at Adidas Originals U.S., to give their hometown of Reading, PA $30,000 worth of Adidas sneakers.

According to Sole Collector, a total of 300 pairs of shoes were sent to Reading’s Blacktop Basketball League.

What a move from the rookie, looks like San Antonio got themselves a keeper.
