After signing a ball for the son of an Air Force serviceman before Monday’s game with Dallas, Boston Celtics wing Jayson Tatum elected to take giving back on Veterans Day that much further.

Tatum, who was exiting the court after warmups, paused and took off his bright green shoes and handed them to the thrilled boy:

Boston athletes were among the thousands of people who used social media to express their respect to those who have served in the military.
