NBA star and Riviera Beach native Alonzo Gee surprised local children with a shopping spree.

He joined 10 deserving children at Dick's Sporting Goods last night, where they were given $200 to shop for whatever they wanted.

"I wanted to give it back to the kids and let them know that people care for them and there's a chance they can make it, you know," Gee said.

Gee, who played for the Denver Nuggets, helped the kids pick out gifts meant to inspire youth sports.
