Report: Former Georgetown Star Otto Porter Jr. Buys Homeless Man Lunch, Eats With Him

Former Georgetown star Otto Porter Jr. is preparing for his first season in the NBA. The ex-Hoya was drafted third overall by the Washington Wizards and is expected to make a big difference on the team this year.

He’s also showing that he can make a difference in the community, even with small, kind gestures. There was a really cool letter to the editor published in today’s Washington Post, from a reader who saw Porter buy lunch for a homeless man, and then sit down to eat with him.

From the letter:

After about 25 minutes, 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. 

Honestly, this is just a really cool story, and a good deed by Otto. You can read the whole letter here.
