Chris Paul was moved. He paid for Gallagher and his family to come see the Clippers and CP3 take on the Detroit Pistons last Friday in Detroit. Paul hung out with the family before the game and gave Jack a new pair of CP3s as well a bunch of Jordan/CP3 gear.
Then he put the mother’s initials on his shoes.
