Indiana Pacers superstar Paul George continues to make amends to a woman he hit in the face with a kicked basketball, sending her flowers and a note of apology.

The incident in question occurred during Saturday’s 111-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls. George, in a moment of frustration, kicked the ball into the baseline seats, accidentally hitting a woman directly in the face. George, who ultimately was ejected from the game for his outburst, quickly apologized for the act by going over to the woman to exchange a brief hug.

George’s regret over the incident must have been weighing on him, as FOX-59 in Indianapolis reports that he later sent flowers and a note of apology to the young woman.

A friend of the woman posted a note and photograph of the flowers to Facebook about George’s thoughtful gesture.

ā€œIā€™m sorry for the ball hitting you at the game on Saturday! It was not intentional,” the note read. “I hope you are feeling okay. Paul George.ā€

In the Facebook post, the woman’s friend applauds George for the note and flowers, calling him a “class act.”

Indeed.
