Andray Blatche and Kris Humphries took some time off Thursday to perform a "random act of kindness," part of a series the Nets initiated on arrival in Brooklyn. With Blatche wearing the drive-through headphones and Humphries behind the counter, the two served up burgers, fries, and chicken nuggets, courtesy of the Nets, to surprised customers in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn.
This is the third time the Nets players have surprised customers at a local business. In December, it was a tank of gas at local gas station in Coney Island, hurt by Hurricane Sandy. Brook Lopez, MarShon Brooks and Tyshawn Taylor, accompanied by BrooklyKnight, pumped free tanks of gas at a local station ... and signed autographs, of course. Previously, Kris Humphries and Jerry Stackhouse gave out gift cards at Key Foods just before the season.
Jeff Scott, the Nets community affairs director, has explained the program this way: "It's completely random and we have out players in the community doing things that people would not normally expect: to see a player at a gas station or a grocery store or wherever else we show up next."
