My nephew was pumped when he received that Jersey for Christmas from my dad, who has been a lifelong Celtics fan. We took the video of him going crazy and he sent it to Marcus on Twitter on February 4th. Marcus tweeted this back at him:
@hoopsterdan DM me your address. Let's make him smile even bigger. Thx for the love!

Marcus Smart started following my dad, who has 11 followers and an egg for a profile pic. The tweet sat there for two days. My dad had no idea that his phone was blowing up with notifications. But then this nice gentleman jumped in and realized that one of his followers had the same last name and reached out to me.
