Dallas Mavericks’ guard Luka Dončić recently donated 100 pairs of shoes to healthcare workers at UT Southwestern Medical Center, the Dallas Morning News reported.

And not just any shoes — he gave them Air Jordan 1 Mid and Low shoes, in several different colors.

In addition to the Jordans, the Preston Hollow neighbor sent a video message thanking the staff.

“I wish I could be there in person, but I just want to say I have one pair of Jordans for each one of you. I’m really excited to do that. Thank you for everything that you did during this Pandemic, and go Mavs,” he says.

This isn’t the first time the Mavericks player has donated to help Texans. Earlier this year, he teamed up with Preston Hollow neighbor and team owner Mark Cuban and other members of the organization to help with recovery efforts following the winter storm.
