It was a day to remember for Doris Burke. She celebrated her 100th birthday by going to a Houston Rockets basketball game, sitting courtside. Rockets All Star James Harden, one of the best players in the NBA, is known for his skills and his amazing beard, noticed Burke throughout the game, watching and smiling. He found out it was her 100th birthday, and when he had a free moment, he went over and presented her with a game ball.
He also took pictures with her and spent time chatting with her after the game, telling her how "blessed" he was to have the chance to meet her. It's not often you see star athletes go out of their way for a fan, but in this case, it was extra special. Kudos to James Harden for showing some real class, and Happy 100th Birthday, Doris Burke...here's to many more!
