Former Arizona State University basketball star James Harden was recently spotted in the Bahamas giving out cash to families in need.

Sports Illustrated reports Harden, now with the Houston Rockets, took a weekend ATV ride around the Nassau area, coming across several families and kids. One of the families was reportedly fishing for food, and Harden handed them $10,000.

Some of his encounters with people he helped out were captured on video and posted to Twitter.

In addition to his good deeds between off-season workouts in the Bahamas, Harden also formed a charity that helps provide education opportunities.

Harden was named the NBA's Most Valuable Player for the 2017-18 season, becoming the first player in ASU history to win the award.
