"Payne is not unaccustomed to struggle; his mother passed away in his arms when he was 13 after a sever asthmatic attack as he desperately searched for her inhaler"


Holy sh*t.

That poor kid - what a wonderful thing he is doing for the little girl.  They both look so happy together.  The picture where they are cutting down the net is priceless.  We need more people like him in the world.

Fking awesome. I remember there was a submission about this little girl, so this is a bit of a follow up.

He honors our school in many ways. Mr. Payne was a special needs learning disabled kid, so he no doubt can empathize with kids who have challenges. He takes the "Spartans Will" tagline to a new level.

Not only that, but the kid can flat-out ball. Serious NBA talent.

Great story.  I hope they move on.  (had picked them to win it all before this story came out, so I really hope they win it all now).  World needs more nice athletes.

Just another reason Michigan State is my second favorite Big 10 school.  (After the one I graduated from.)  Proud of you, Sparty!

I will always root for Michigan but i have enormous respect for Msu.


Kick this cancer's ass Lacie.

MSU's program always seems to be filled with guys who are selfless and (for the most part) humble. Great ambassadors for their school.

The coach is a huge fundraiser for the hospital. Half the pediatric facilities there are thanks to his support, and not just monetary.

We lived in some apts far from campus. Whenever there were athletes that caused trouble, our landlady would call the coaches instead of the police, so eventually our complex had a reputation as a place for athletes who were a bit more mature or serious. The guys across from us were all football and basketball players and were super nice and polite. The starting quarterback said good morning and looked you in the eye while doing do. He opened the door for you if your hands were full and said thank you if you opened the door for him. I know it doesn seem like much, but you didn't even see regular students do any if that. I think Hoyer was his last name, he plays pro now, last I heard.

Hope thinking about it doesn't make him choke on a last minute shot, knowing that he apparently chokes when everything is on the line.

Yeah, I've got to give a lot of credit to Izzo for how well behaved the kids on the basketball team are.  A friend of mine from high school was an RA on a floor with a lot of athletes at MSU.  According to him, the best behaved student-athletes were the basketball team.  He had a number to get in touch with the basketball staff, Izzo made it plain that if any of his kids were misbehaving he wanted to hear about it and that he'd come down on them like a ton of bricks.  In stark contrast were the guys on the hockey team (one of whom urinated on his door), whose coach didn't care what the fark they did as long as they performed on the ice.
