NBA legend Michael Jordan opened a medical clinic to serve the disadvantaged in his native North Carolina.

According to the Charlotte Observer, the 6-time NBA champion teared up on Thursday as he unveiled the Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinic which has already treated 300 patients.

During his speech the Charlotte Hornets owner fought back tears as he dedicated the clinic to the community that supported him.

"I've gone off and made my life in Illinois and other places, but I know where it all begins. And I don't need my mother to constantly remind me about that," Jordan said as the crowd laughed.

"I can only give in gratitude for what I can never repay. I stand here before you as a proud parent, son, obviously a member of this community. My mother, my brothers, my daughter, my grandson, we all represent the name 'Michael Jordan,'" the NBA Hall-of-Famer said. "As you can see, it's a very emotional thing for me. To be able to give back to a community that's supported me over the years."

The clinic was funded by a $7 million philanthropic donation from Jordan.

Jordan's goal is to bring more medical clinics to disadvantaged neighborhoods in North Carolina.

Freshman Michael Todd said he was bullied in school his whole life because his single mom didn't have enough money to buy new clothes for him to wear.

Todd was having a hard time fitting in at Martin Luther King Prep in Memphis, TN. He was bullied for wearing the same clothes to school every day.

"I don't really have clothes at home. My mom can't buy clothes for me because I'm growing too fast," he told Fox 13 in Memphis, TN.

After being bullied by ruthless classmates, two high school football players stepped in to help Todd out.

Kristopher Graham and Antwan Garrett surprised Todd by gifting him with bags of clothes and shoes from their own closets, according to Fox 13.

"I said, 'You know, we was in the same third period. I apologize for laughing at you and I want to give something to you to make it up,'" Graham told Fox 13 Memphis.

"I was shocked, completely… You guys are awesome," said Todd.

"It was a weak moment for me, I was crying," Garrett said.

"And then I almost cried when we had lunch, he told me, he was like, 'You know, you two the only two to actually ever give me a gift,'" Graham said.
