WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
An NBA star surprised kids with a Christmas shopping spree.
Riviera Beach native Alonzo Gee joined 10 deserving kids at the Dick's Sporting Goods at The Shoppes at Southern Palms, where they were given $200 to shop for whatever they liked.
Gee, who played for the Denver Nuggets, also helped them pick out gifts in an effort to inspire and enable youth sports.
"I wanted to give back to the kids and let them now that people care for them and there's a chance they can make it," he said.
