Santa Cuz has done it again.

It was just a couple of days ago that Sacramento Kings star DeMarcus Cousins took 100 underprivileged youths on a holiday shopping spree. As grand a gesture as that was, he wasn't done giving back.

Cousins teamed up with Chevrolet to surprise a family with a brand-new car, a 2016 Chevy Malibu. The Kings' big man was able to sneak up behind the family as they took photos down on the court at Sleep Train Arena.

After successfully driving in without getting noticed, he honked to get the family's attention and show them their new ride. Almost instantly, tears began to pour out. Boogie even had a hard time holding back:

This was a much-needed gift for a family that had been through some tough times. Here's a little bit of backstory, per Sean Cunningham of ABC10 Sports:

[Maurice] Williams and [Selena] Pina are raising their 3-year-old daughter Marina, in addition to Selena's two younger twin sisters J'nay and J'nette Sims, who were twice abandoned - once by their biological mother, and then again by family friends who didn't want them anymore.

Malnourished and neglected, the twins, almost six years old at the time, were left at the front door of Maurice and Selena, who then contacted Child Protective Services for help.

Williams and Pina—who are engaged and plan to get married in 2016—were granted full guardianship of J'nay and J'nette in October.
