Rondae Hollis-Jefferson just dedicated back to the woman who committed him everything.

The Brooklyn Nets rookie celebrated his mother’s birthday on Friday by pulling out his checkbook for the biggest endow imaginable: A brand-new home. In an entry for The New York Post, Hollis-Jefferson recounted Friday night’s life-changing astound party for his mother, Rylanda Hollis.

She said it was her best birthday ever. Thats massive for me and my brother, and my uncle, who is like brothers and sisters to us. Thats big-hearted in our eyes, is capable of being do that. Being able to change your moms life, is capable of being threw her in a comfy situation. It attains that feeling in your nerve go to ease.

Instead of worrying about where your mom is going, what shes doing, it sets you at ease knowing she has a home of her own, and that she has somewhere to lay her psyche at night. Its pretty special.

For Hollis-Jefferson, that memory is worth putting himself in a less-than-glamorous living situation. Armed with a brand-new multi-million dollar contract, Hollis-Jefferson is equipped to experience the high-rolling NBA lifestyle, but instead, he seems to be staying as grounded as is practicable.

In September, he complained about the rip-off that is the New York City real estate market to The Wall Street Journal, disclosing that he’s chosen to lock-down a rentalwith his brother, NBA D-LeaguerRahlir Hollis-Jefferson and a friend in Northern New Jersey. Having spanned the tri-state real estate market once before, Hollis-Jefferson likely got a sick bargain on his mom’s residence — a far cry from the run-down but still insanely expensive suites you can score in Brooklyn.

On a $1.33 million wage this season, he could easily renders any number of indulgence apartments and residences in Manhattan or Brooklyn, but those extravagant consolations are secondary to Hollis-Jefferson. A sensible rental in New Jersey and a real dwelling for mom will do for now.

Family first.
