In a heartwarming response to a fan’s devotion, NBA legend Michael Jordan gave the man a surprise of a lifetime.

Jeffrey Harrison is an autistic man who was captured on video recentlyĀ dressed in the full 1990s Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan uniform, according to USA Today.

Jordan, arguably the greatest to ever play the game, learned of Harrison when KREM2, theĀ CBS-affiliated television station in Spokane, passed Harrison’s information along to Jordan’s business manager.

all this money and they not trying to give us noneā€™

The former player responded by sendingĀ Harrison two boxes of Jordan gear, which he received on Friday. Included inside were shoes, t-shirts, shorts, sweats and more, including a letter.

“Continue to believe in yourself, play hard and always remember to enjoy the game,ā€ the six-time world champion wrote.

As incredible asĀ all of this was, there was more to come … like a phone call from the man himself,Ā KREM2 reported.

Jordan called Harrison, who got the chance to tell his idol, “I love you.”

Adding to the inspiration,Ā Jordan told Harrison he was going to be watching for him on the court — who know, maybe he’ll show up himself to shoot the rock.

“I knew it was him. It kind of brought me to tears after I got off the phone so I figured this is really going to be nice,” Harrison told KREM2. “The fact that Michael Jordan took the time to call and put all this together. I love it, even the cologne even the sweats, I love it.”
