Clyde Frazier Sr. carries on his son's legacy through his Slam Jam Tournament. 

Clyde Frazier Jr., who died during the 9/11 attacks, often used his own money to fund the basketball tournament for children in some of NYC's roughest neighborhoods.

Frazier Sr. told his story about losing his son and doing good after his passing.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump saw Frazier's interview during Good Day NY on Wednesday. Trump found the story so touching that he reached out to Good Day NY to make a donation to the Slam Jam Tournament.

"I think you do a lot of good a lot of real good. I saw your interview yesterday and I saw that your are amazing.  This is for the league and for the kids," said Trump as he handed Frazier a check.

“It’s a check for $25,000. I feel a little nervous. I’m talking to a billionaire. He’s a man of the world. He’s a master builder. It’s a dream come true," said Frazier.

"It was a amazing about how you spoke of your son and your other son, James," said Trump.

“He was a good kid. He’d take money from his own pocket,” said James about his brother.

"There’s nothing like having money and you can tell the girls to get ready and have the best teams come up and play.  I really believe my son is doing this."

“I know you’re going to spend this money wisely. It’s an honor to know you," said Trump.

    School is back in session for some and will be for most students and staff starting next week.  Good Day New York wanted to salute teachers from across the Tristate as they head back to the classroom. On Thursday, a live studio audience of teachers were part of the Back To School Special: Good Day New York Sorry Summer is Over But We Praise and Honor Teachers (but no math; we like math teachers, though.)

    The U.S. Open is underway in Queens and there's no denying that many of the players, both men and women, are in great physical shape and know how to play that up. Women are particularly promoted in the industry as attractive, fashionable and fiercely competitive. Does that help the game and draw more people in?
