Sam Dekker’s Badgers played all the way until the finals in March, and then followed that up by being drafted in the first round by the Houston Rockets. Dekker went 18th in the draft and will play alongside James Harden, Dwight Howard, and Josh Smith on a legit playoff contender. But, that didn’t stop him from going home to Wisconsin and immediately mowing the lawn for his mother, like a good son does.

Real show of class by Dekker, and real brutal move by mom to blow up his spot on social media.
