Jeffrey Harrison has been a fan of Michael Jordan since he was 4-years-old. When a video of Harrison in the full MJ uniform and sneakers surfaced online, he caught the attention of countless people, including the G.O.A.T. himself.

Donning the uniform has become a six year routine at pickup games for Harrison, reports KREM 2, while watching videos of Jordan has helped the 33-year-old play similarly on the court, as well—what some think impossible for an autistic man. Those from his Idaho neighborhood even call him by Jordan’s nicknames.
Jordan couldn’t let his fan’s dedication go unrewarded. The former NBA player delivered two boxes to Idaho and gifted Harrison with even more Jordan wear for his games, like the Air Jordan 7 Retro. A letter accompanied the surprise. Harrison’s final gift was a call from his idol, which was the icing on the cake.
