Wizards Otto Porter Buys And Has Lunch With Homeless Man

Otto Porter with a generous gesture for a homeless man.

This is what it’s really all about.

Wizards top-pick Otto Porter noticed a homeless guy begging for food outside of a D.C. sandwich shop and decided to take action.

After about 25 minutes (of the homeless guy asking people for food), Otto Porter Jr., the Georgetown basketball star and the Washington Wizards’ newest first-round draft pick, drove up, hopped out of his car and entered the shop. Mr. Porter soon exited with his sandwich and drink — but also with a sandwich, a bag of chips and a drink for the homeless man. Mr. Porter then sat down next to the man, and they both enjoyed their sandwiches while making small talk.

It’s great to see a professional athlete get recognition for doing something positive in the community for a change.
