Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade surprises the Waffle House shooting hero, James Shaw with an appearance on The Ellen Show.
James Shaw Jr., the courageous man who grabbed the gun from the shooter at a Waffle House last month, was invited as a guest on "The Ellen Show". He has been repeatedly praised as a hero but continues to claim that he merely acted out of a means of survival.
Despite Shaw's refusal to accept the term "hero", the NBA player told Shaw, "I know you don't want to be called a hero, but I look at you as an American hero". He continued with, "When I sit down with my kids and I sit down and talk to them about role models and who I want them to look up to, I tell them to go look up James Shaw Jr.," Wade said.
