Myles Turner was a lottery pick for the Indiana Pacers in the 2015 NBA Draft. On Tuesday, he decided he wanted to give back to two important members of his family growing up with the money earned in his rookie deal.
He took to Facebook and shot a live video of him surprising his grandmother and aunt, who he claimed were instrumental in his childhood, with a brand new car.
Needless to say, their reactions were priceless.

Turner is 20 years old and he claimed that his aunt had her car “since before he was born,” so this will certainly be a welcome change for her. We have seen athletes showing their generosity by doing things like this, but it is always cool to see it.
It is great to see that Turner has not forgotten where he came from.
