Damian Lillard surprises Boys & Girls Club kids with Toys ‘R’ Us shopping spree (pics)

Portland Trail Blazers star point guard Damian Lillard may have displayed some real on-court heroics a couple of times in the past week — hitting two clutch game-winning shots on both Sunday and Tuesday as time wound down — but a true demonstration of heroism occurred on Thursday night, and Lillard was nowhere near a basketball court at the time.

Thirty kids received a holiday surprise that surely thrilled them to no end after they departed a Portland Boys & Girls Club outpost on a bus only to learn during the ride that they were being taken to Toys ‘R’ Us for a shopping spree courtesy of Lillard.

The children were being rewarded for good behavior and were presented with a $100 gift card to spend any way they liked.

The kids were met at the Toys ‘R’ Us by Lillard and by the looks on their faces in the tweets below, it is a memory none of them will soon forget.
