Who doesn't love seeing their favourite sports heroes being wholesome off the court? Pascal Siakam proved once again that he is a total sweetheart after sharing a touching moment with a fan last night. The 25-year-old gave a little girl a pair of sneakers at the end of the Raptors game against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.
In a video of the moment, Siakam can be seen walking off the court with a pair of sneakers in hand. Spicy P then makes a quick pit stop to hand them over to a stunned girl in a Raptors jersey.
The young fan, who is holding a cut-out of Siakam's face, can hardly believe her eyes as the NBA star walks back over to her and gives her a quick hug.
Fans quickly responded to the video on Twitter, praising the player for being a class act.
"The reason Pascal is successful and will continue to be is because of how humble & down to Earth he is. I knew he was going to hold us down tonight. Keep making your Pops proud Brother he's shining down on you," wrote one fan.
"This is why you're a champ on and off court!" added another.

Siakam has proven time and time again that he isn't taking his newfound success lightly.
In fact, just a few months ago the Raptors star was spotted surprising a group of kids at a Toronto school.
Being named the Right to Play Hero of 2019, Siakam has continued to make an impact on youth across the GTA, so it's no surprise that the star continues to go above and beyond for his younger fans.
"Pascal is deeply committed to helping kids and enjoys engaging in educational and play-based games, making him an outstanding role model for Right To Play’s Youth To Youth play-based programs," reads a statement from the Right to Play website.
An old video recently resurfaced online of Siakam's rookie initiation.
In the clip, Siakam and his long-time teammate Fred VanVleet can be seen singing along to Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" in front of the Raptors while being sworn in as a member of the team.
