Giving back to the community is one way that NBA stars can help future generations, and many players do their best to help out when they can.

Dwyane Wade was in New Orleans for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game over the weekend, so he decided to team up with Gatorade to put his time to good use.

The Miami Heat superstar helped pull off a surprise for Riverdale High School's (Jefferson, La.) basketball team on Saturday. While Riverdale was on the court in the second half, the Gatorade crew went to work to redo the team's locker room:

After the team pulled out a hard-fought 67-64 victory, it came back to a great surprise.

The players had great reactions when they saw the professional-like locker room:


Gatorade's crew did a terrific job of getting everything put together. Now, the players have an experience that will last them a lifetime.
