A lot of teams do the “Jersey Giveaway” at the end of Fan App, offering a random group of fans their game worn jerseys. The NY Knicks just one-upped this in a shocking way.
Following two open-heart surgeries, Ava’s dream came true last night when @FrankLikina presented his signed jersey, followed by the surprise of a lifetime with a special @gardenofdreams college scholarship. #ThisIsWhyWePlay pic.twitter.com/hpMvRzS8Ts

Following the presentation of the jersey, player Frank Ntilikina (aka Frankie Smokes) presented Ava with a Garden of Dreams college scholarship. Amazing.
Its also striking how low-key this presentation was, seemingly not even announced for the Garden crowd. Fantastic work by the Knicks.
