Ja Morant, a star for the Memphis Grizzlies, showed some love and brightened a Florida waitress' day.

One of the NBA's up-and-coming talents, Morant, was being recorded for a YouTube documentary series.

For lunch, Morant and his friends went to a restaurant.

Morant tipped the waitress at restaurant $500 while having lunch there.

When the waitress inquired as to who he is Morant jokefully replied, "Black Jesus,"

Morant was questioned by waitress about the sport he participated in as well as the team he represented.

Morant stated to have played for the Grizzlies, and the woman recognised him right away.

She exhaled heavily and covered her mouth in surprise. The woman ran back to tell her coworkers after laughing with delight.
