Former Detroit Pistons star Rasheed Wallace drove from North Carolina to Flint, Michigan with a truck full of cases of water on Thursday, per the University of North Carolina's Twitter account. Flint is dealing with a contaminated water crisis, and Wallace is still beloved in Michigan.
Wallace's gesture follows Pistons owner Tom Gores starting a campaign to raise $10 million to solve the problem. All 15 Detroit players, along with executives, teamed up to donate $500,000 to the relief effort this past week.
It is notable that there doesn't seem to be any information at all about Wallace's trip to Flint beyond that single tweet sent by UNC. As a player, he was exuberant on the court but never courted any sort of attention. The same is true today.
