Jack Gallagher thought he was dreaming when he met Chris Paul. They actually cried together. Just when you penned all ghetto born NBA basketball stars to be Becky loving, chicken wing addicts- Chris Paul changes the game…again. Lisa Elaine Gallagher, Jack’s momma, died from brain cancer. Jack slapped the Nike CP3 sneakers on momma Lisa’s grave. He yearned to see Chris Paul rock the shoes showcasing his mother’s initials during a Clippers game- just like we hope to get hired by some ‘fancy-smancy, Hollyweird entertainment company.
Jack’s peeps drove 4 hours to watch Paul & the Los Angeles Clippers, win. Jack got turnt in the team locker room, and smelled Blake Griffin’s breath in the team huddle. Chris Paul took his precious time to meet Jack Gallagher’s dad and cousins in Palace of Auburn Hills. CP3 not only gave him new shoes, he chopped it up with Jack for a few minutes too.
“Sometimes,” Paul said, “stuff is bigger than the game of basketball.”
