Toronto Raptors sophomore Terrence Ross exploded for 51 points against the Los Angeles Clippers on Jan. 25, and in one of the best signs of respect we've seen from an NBA star in recent memory, Ross gave the game ball to his mom after the game. 

According to Toronto Raptors media relations, Ross' mom taught him how to shoot and used to play with him one-on-one. 

Hat tip to reddit user thatdudecalledZZ for the find.
