Mario West Seems To Be a Good Guy

It's never bad time for a reminder that it's not all about  what someone can or cannot do on a basketball court.

From Sunday's AJC:

The Atlanta Hawks guard has a special relationship with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. Occasionally, he throws pizza parties for patients there, like he did last week. After autographing posters, handing out books and Hawks schedules and taking pictures with his young friends, he spoke to the AJC’s Darryl Maxie.

More gratifying — fan response at Philips Arena or children’s response here?

“It’s all the same to me. It’s unbelievable the amount of love and support you get. Sometimes somebody will come up and say, ‘You inspired me’ or ‘You motivated me.’ The feedback you get from fans and kids really humbles you.”
