NBA Player Khris Middleton Rewards Brooklyn Chop House Staff With $1K Tip On Christmas

The 11-year NBA veteran was with the Milwaukee Bucks when they played the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden

An NBA player spread the love earlier this week while he was in town to play the New York Knicks and graciously left a $1,000 gratuity to the staff that served him and his family and friends.

According to Page Six, while the Milwaukee Bucks were in New York to play the Knicks on Christmas, Khris Middleton took 12 of his friends and family to music industry vet and now restauranteur Robert “Don Pooh” Cummins’ popular spot, Brooklyn Chop House, in the financial district. Not only was the small forward generous with his circle, but he also left the staff with a hefty $1,000 tip to help brighten their holiday.

The 11-year NBA veteran ordered two of the restaurant’s $495 LSD meals, which come with lobster, steak, and duck as the main items and include sides like fried rice, fries, and other selections.

Middleton had a good game and scored a season-high 24 points (10-20 FG, 4-9 3Pt), pulled down two rebounds, dished out six assists, and had one steal while playing 33 minutes. According to CBS Sports, it still resulted in the Bucks losing to the home team 129-122. He tied a season-high during the game when he made four three-pointers. For December, he is scoring about 17.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists, 2.1 threes, and 0.8 steals over that stretch while making 50% of his shots from the floor.

ESPN reported that Middleton’s injury before last season kept him out of the 2022 Eastern Conference semifinals against the Boston Celtics. Then, he only played in 33 regular-season games last season due to a combination of wrist and knee issues.

He did sign a new contract for three years for $102 million, and to keep him from any further injuries, he has averaged less than 20 minutes a game for his first 10 games this season. He missed one game due to an Achilles injury but has been striving in the limited minutes this season.
