Former West Virginia point guard Jevon Carter is in the middle of his rookie season with the Memphis Grizzlies. He made quite an impact in his NBA debut, and received his first NBA start earlier this month, the first for a WVU alum since Devin Ebanks in 2011.
While those facts may be most remembered from this season, something happened today that a certain Mountaineer fan will never forget. Wearing his special edition Martin Luther King Jr.-inspired sneakers during shootaround today, Carter spotted a WVU fan in the stands. Without hesitation, he handed them over and told the stunned kid he could have them.
