NBA player spends last 23 seconds of game sitting and chatting with young fan

- A family member on the staff here at FOX 5 had an experience he will never forget while spending the Thanksgiving holiday with his family.

As the Atlanta Hawks were visiting the Indiana Pacers on Thanksgiving Eve, Hawks guard/forward Thabo Sefolosha decided to have some fun and do a little exploring among the sparse crowd that remained in the arena as Atlanta held a comfortable 11-point lead with 23 seconds left in the game. With the game in hand, Sefolosha spent the final moments chatting it up with a young fan in a Pacers jersey sitting in the front row next to the Hawks’ bench.

But who was that young fan? It was none other than Jax, the son of FOX 5 anchor Shawn Yancy, who was attending the game with Shawn’s mother!

Watch the cool moment here:
