Memphis Grizzlies Give Intern The Perfect Christmas Gift After His Car Is Stolen

ABS_Grizzlies ChristmasWhile many professional athletes and sports teams make a habit of giving back to the community during the holiday season, the 21-7 Memphis Grizzlies went the extra-mile and found a way to make this Christmas one to remember for one of their interns in need.

Brandon Henderson, a 24-year-old intern, had his 21-year-old Chrysler New Yorker stolen while he was on a date before Thanksgiving. Since his vehicle was stolen, Henderson quietly made adjustments to life without a car since he couldn’t afford to buy a new one. He didn’t tell anyone at work about what happened to him because he wanted to keep his personal issues separate from his work, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Somehow, Vince Carter and other Memphis Grizzlies players heard about what happened to Henderson and they decided to chip in and surprise him last week with a new 2014 Nissan Altima, worth somewhere around $20,000.

The gesture brought Henderson to tears as he hugged and thanked the players.

“I don’t know how the guys found out,” Henderson told the Commercial Appeal. “It didn’t seem real. It seemed like a dream.”

“My man had a tough time, you know,” Carter said in a video on Foxsports.com. “Everybody chipped in for him, for Christmas. This is the holiday season for giving and that’s what we wanted.”
