Good guy, John Wall

When you're a blossoming NBA star and the face of a franchise, you have a bit of influence. A few weeks ago, the Washington Wizards point guard posted a video to his Instagram account alongside Miyah, a young fan battling cancer, who really wanted a pink wig from pop star Nicki Minaj.

If you're not familiar with Nicki Minaj, know that she makes some bold style choices, including wearing a bright pink wig at times. You know, like this one:

As we can see from Minaj's recent Instagram posts, Miyah got her wish! Minaj was sure to tell the young girl that she looks beautiful with and without the wig, and, of course, to stay in school.

As a token of appreciation, Wall hooked Minaj up with a signed jersey.
