Bismack Biyombo feeds, clothes homeless man

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERBismack Biyombo is in his 4th season with the Charlotte Hornets, and while the 22-year-old Congolese power forward is still learning the NBA game, he obviously has his priorities in order off the court. With the Hornets in Chicago this week to take on the Bulls, Biyombo apparently used his night off on Tuesday to walk around the city, where he met a homeless man and, well, let’s let Biyombo tell the story…

Good morning people! Was Bless last night in Chicago to spent time with this great homeless person, who I so sleeping outside as I was walking around the city, he was cover with few things and I spoke to him and after we spoke, I ask him if he want it to get food and he said man I will love to but I can't go into a restaurant. I ask him why? He said because of the way I'm dressing and the way I look.. I could believe it or no? But I want it to experience that myself, as we walk around the mall before we go get some food, officers had to ask if he was with me until we get to the restaurant!! The amazing thing is that I had a great diner and great time and some great conversation and what we did after is between God of this universe and I… This guy read books and is recommendation was this Book call the secret that going to be my next Book!! So people I will just ask you to help because you want to not because you have to.. Help build a better society, be part of something special!! God bless #Godwill #Biznation

    This story should be on the cover of the site (or whatever you call it…sorry I’m computer illiterate…but at least I’m not writing an article for NBA.com whilst not knowing proper grammar as and_then_face pointed out above)

    Very touching…he didnt have to announce to the world that he is about to commit a good deed, he was simply being himself…God Bless you Bismack
