Generosity is a dying act in today’s world, unfortunately. However, Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson is doing his part to try and fix that. Besides having a pretty interesting personal life with a pretty awesome personality, the NBA power forward has done something recently involving the new Drake album, ‘Nothing Was The Same’.

The young Raptor’s player bought out an entire store’s worth of the newest Drake album. You might be saying, ‘well, wouldn’t that just anger people who wanted the album?’. That might have been the case at first, but then he did something that not enough people do these days. He committed an act of kindness on his own time with no personal gain from it.

Johnson might not be the best player in the NBA, but in terms of kindness and generosity — rare traits these days — he is certainly near the top after this stunt. He posted on Instagram a picture of himself with the albums in hand and told fans to meet him at a specific location and he would give them away.

People responded and it looked like a good number of people showed up to get a free CD from the NBA star. Okay, maybe he’s not so much a star on the court — but this act off the court makes him a local star.

While people who went to the store that day after the Johnson tornado rolled through was probably disappointed that they couldn’t get their hands on the rap star’s lyrics, but there will be more.

Great move, Amir.
