Jimmy Keep is an 88-year-old World War II veteran who fought at Iwo Jima as a Marine. He's also a big Memphis Grizzlies and Zach Randolph fan who got to attend Friday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

After the game, Keep got a treat that he'll never forget.

The Grizzlies came away with a big 97-90 win, and after the game, Randolph got to meet Keep. Randolph seemed just as excited to meet the World War II veteran as Keep was to meet him, with the Memphis big man hugging him as they were introduced.
