Bismack Biyombo Buys Clothes, Dinner for Homeless Man

Charlotte Hornets center Bismack Biyombo didn’t play in Wendesday night’s victory over the Chicago Bulls due to a lingering knee injury, but he made a massive impact off the court.

According to his Instagram, Biyombo was walking around Chicago, Illinois, last night and noticed a homeless man sleeping outside.

Good morning people! Was Bless last night in Chicago to spent time with this great homeless person, who I so sleeping outside as I was walking around the city, he was cover with few things and I spoke to him and after we spoke, I ask him if he want it to get food and he said man I will love to but I can't go into a restaurant. I ask him why? He said because of the way I'm dressing and the way I look.. I could believe it or no? But I want it to experience that myself, as we walk around the mall before we go get some food, officers had to ask if he was with me until we get to the restaurant!! The amazing thing is that I had a great diner and great time and some great conversation and what we did after is between God of this universe and I… This guy read books and is recommendation was this Book call the secret that going to be my next Book!! So people I will just ask you to help because you want to not because you have to.. Help build a better society, be part of something special!! God bless #Godwill #Biznation

After conversing for a period, the fourth-year pro asked the man if he wanted to get food. The man replied to Biyombo that he’d love to but couldn’t enter the restaurant with the 6’9″ center because they looked different.

So, Biyombo said he decided to buy some clothes for the man, too, though his charitable act wasn’t originally met with applause from mall security.

“As we walk around the mall before we go get some food, officers had to ask if he was with me until we get to the restaurant!!”

Biyombo shared the man reads books and recommended one called The Secret, which Biyombo said would be his next one. The NBA reserve finished his post with a challenge.

So people I will just ask you to help because you want to not because you have to.. Help build a better society, be part of something special!! God bless

Biyombo has also performed other charitable work, particularly in his native Congo. For two years, he’s held basketball camps in his birty city of Lubumbashi and the capital, Kinshasa.

Considering the amount of negative news surrounding athletes these days in various topics, it’s wonderful to see someone in Biyombo’s position reaching out and making a difference.

The seventh overall pick in 2012 hasn’t always been a reliable contributor on the court, but he certainly appears like he’s an All-Star off of it.
