Neverjetna zgodba prihaja iz mesta Calabasas pri Los Angelesau, zgodila pa se je nekdanjemu NBA zvezdniku Gilbertu Arenasu. Danes 38-letni Arenas velja za »slabega« dečka NBA košarkarske lige, saj so njegovo kariero zaznamovale številne afere in nikoli ni popolnoma izkoristil svojega izjemnega talenta. Navkljub vsemu Arenasu po koncu kariere ni prav težko, saj je kot košarkar zaslužil preko 200 milijonov dolarjev.

Pred nekaj dnevi se je nekdanji košarkar, tako kot vsak teden, pripeljal na bencinsko postajo in hotel vplačati loterijski listek. Prodajalna je bila zaprta, zato se je odločil, da bo dotočil bencin in vplačal loto na drugi bencinski črpalki. Nato je opazil še, da je doma pozabil denar in da ima v žepu le 10 dolarjev.

Med polnjenjem je mimo prišel brezdomec in ga prosil za nekaj drobiža. Arenas mu je razložil svojo situacijo, da se mu mudi vplačati loto preden zaprejo prodajalno in da ima samo deset dolarjev pri sebi. Vmes se mu je brezdomec zasmilil in ponudil mu je pet dolarjev, čeprav je s tem tvegal, da bo na cesti ostal brez bencina. Brezdomec ga je zavrnil in mu rekel, naj kar vplača listek, ker bo zagotovo zadel in naj mu naslednjič prinese 20 dolarjev.

Arenas se je zasmejal in se odpeljal do naslednje prodajalne, ki pa je bila prav tako že zaprta. Vrnil se je domov in se pač sprijaznil, da ta teden ne bo igral lota.

My brain is saying (the fuck u asking all the questions for ) so I was only going to CALABASAS which was 7 mins away but lied and said Thousand Oaks which was at least 16 mins away so before he did the math on everything I said " 8 mins before the cut off but it's 16 mins away" I said listen I'll just use $5 dollars for gas and u can have the other $5 😇 he then says (from here to Thousand Oaks and back) u won't make it on $5 so KEEP the $10 and after u WIN hook me up with $20! I said are u sure he said yes 💯 I know ur gonna win💯 by the time I got to the my hookup gas station they were closed I guess they closed early for repair so I didn't get to play my numbers😡😡😡 I wake up to a text Wednesday morning saying congratulations U won 300k 😱 I've heard this scammer type shit happening so I ignored the next becuz I didn't get to play my numbers so I couldn't have won shit....I went to the gas station later that day to play powerball that was later that night and the owner runs out saying YOU WON i texted u 👀 I said huh I didn't play yesterday..he said I played ur numbers for u becuz I was closing early and u WON 😱🤯 long story short.....I pulled up on my guy yesterday and gave him his cut (for his safety) won't say the number 🤐he jumped up and hugged me for 5 mins crying and then started to pray💯 I've given back to the homeless BUT never was blessed by one 🙏🏾😇 his good hearted gesture of me making it back home blessed that ticket💯 #happysunday

Naslednje jutro je dobil sporočilo, da je zadel 300 tisoč dolarjev. Mislil je, da se nekdo šali in pozabil na sporočilo. Proti večeru je odšel na isto bencinsko postajo, do njega pa je pritekel lastnik prodajalne in kričal: »Zadel si 300 tisoč, ali nisi videl mojega sporočila?« Izkazalo se je, da je lastnik prejšnji večer pred predčasnim zaprtjem prodajalne namesto rednega gosta Arenasa, ki vedno igra z istimi številkami, vplačal loto listek.

Arenas je seveda nagrado delil tako z lastnikom prodajalne kot z brezdomcem, ki ni mogel verjeti, kaj se mu je zgodilo. Košarkarja je objemal in poljubljal (navkljub korona virusu) vsaj 5 minut in ga blagoslovil z vsemi bogovi. Koliko denarja je dal brezdomcu Arenas ni hotel povedati zaradi njegove varnosti, a v vsakem primeru veliko več kot obljubljenih 20 dolarjev.
