So much hype. So much talk. He could have made that donation to the Boys & Girls Club quietly.
No. It was all about the decision. So everyone could see him and know he was still the same.

Pride goes before destruction,
and a haughty spirit before a fall.
It is better to be of a lowly spirit among the poor
than to divide the spoil with the proud.
