There’s no doubt, the stigma that has followed Memphis Grizzlies power forward, Zach Randolph, still haunts him to this day. Of course, Randolph, who was famously part of the ‘Jail Blazers’ certainly helped enhance that poor image with many questionable choices which ranged from being spotted at a strip club during an excused absence for a funeral to allegedly being associated with a drug ring.

But as Randolph has grown older, he’s matured like so many before him and the wild and iffy antics have ceased.

Now a leader of the Grizzlies, Randolph takes it upon himself to display that both on and off the court, something that was seen on Wednesday evening as the Grizzlies were getting blown out.

A young special needs child sitting near Randolph could me seen mimicking he wanted Zach’s shooting shirt. Randolph quickly took notice of the young boy where he walked over, spoke to him for a few seconds and literally took the shirt off his back, giving it to the young child.

Say what you will about some of Randolph’s past antics, but this was no doubt a heart warming moment.
