The Pelicans reportedly refused to play the Kings in what would have been the last game before the NBA’s coronavirus hiatus. As we’ve learned more about the effectiveness of social distancing, it was obviously good the game got postponed.

But in the moment, that left one young Sacramento fan heartbroken in a memorable scene:

Harry Giles and the Kings are stepping up to console her.

Kings:

This is fantastic. Watch that video, and you’ll probably smile.

But I also can’t help but think about the fact that Giles might not be with the Kings by the time this girl attends a game.
