Thirteen-year-old Jack Gallagher wanted Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul to honor his late mother with a special sneaker tribute. What Paul did was more than the teenager could have hoped for.

Gallagher put together a special request to Paul in a touching video that details a bond he had with his mom, all because of a pair of CP3s.

What was Paul's response to seeing the video? He wanted to find the Gallaghers and make good on that request.

The Clippers point guard hooked the Gallagher family up with tickets for Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills. However, he wasn't done there.

Paul gave Jack three pairs of sneakers and two bags full of Jordan CP3 gear, per NBA.com. The 29-year-old spent some time before the game with the family as well.

Of course, Paul also honored the request by writing Jack's mother's initials—"L.E.G."—on his shoes.

With Jack watching from the crowd, Paul had 23 points and seven assists in a 104-98 Clippers victory.
