Here's how you can get the Lonnie Walker IV's 'What's up, guey?' T-shirt and support a worthy cause

"I was at H-E-B and someone said, 'What's up, guey?'," Walker said.

SAN ANTONIO — The Spurs' Lonnie Walker IV made all of San Antonio laugh and smile when he told a story of how he was officially welcomed as a San Antonian during a trip to grocer H-E-B last month.

"I was at H-E-B and someone said, 'What's up, guey?'," Walker laughed. "I'm part of this community now, you know!" 

Ahead of the Spurs-Mavericks game Wednesday night, Walker showed off a new t-shirt that captured that "puro San Antonio" moment.

And now you can own the same shirt, via Walker's online shop, with proceeds benefiting a worthy cause right here in the city.

With each purchase, Walker is donating a portion of sales to Say Sí, a San Antonio-based organization that ignites the creative power of young people as a force of positive change.    

Walker has been in San Antonio for four years now and considers himself an adopted son.

"I think I'm a San Antonio, Texas guy myself," Walker said.
