Aussie NBA superstar Ben Simmons continued his sneaker commentary on the Christchurch shootings during Wednesday's game with the 76ers.
Days after telling the world to "Pray for NZ", Simmons rocked up to play Charlotte with a shiny pair of Nikes that had "Egg Boy" scrawled across the side.
The gesture follows the tsunami of support for Will Connolly, the teenager who egged Senator Fraser Anning following the Queensland politician's controversial comments on the New Zealand massacre.
Simmons backed up the bold move with his play too, producing one of the finest performances of his career to lead Philadelphia to a 118-114 win without star centre Joel Embiid.
Simmons hit 11/12 shots from the field for 28 points while adding eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and only one turnover.
The 22-year-old had joined a host of athletes worldwide in offering tributes to the victims of the attack in an earlier game.
Elsewhere, Australian artist Scott Marsh has unveiled a giant painting on the wall of Sydney pub the Lord Gladstone in Chippendale.
The 17-year-old was whacked in the face by Senator Anning and taken to the ground after the incident. Police confirmed the teen had been interviewed and released on Tuesday afternoon, pending further investigation.
A crowdfunding account set up for the teenager has since made over $50,000, which he says will be donated to the families of the victims of the Christchurch atrocity.
"Will is committed that every cent of the money raised from the GoFundMe page go to support victims of the tragedy in Christchurch," Lawyer Peter Gordon said.
Egg Boy' was labelled "the hero we deserve" and nominated for Australian of the Year by some members of the public, while otherscalled him a brat. Senator Anning said the boy's mother should have slapped him long ago.
Mr Gordon said it was a privilege to work with Will, describing him as brave and compassionate.
"He really strikes you as a remarkably smart, compassionate and brave young man,' Mr Gordon said.
When asked if it appeared Victoria Police would lay charges against Will, Mr Gordon said he had received "noindication" that would happen. "But obviously police have got a job to do," he said.
