There are many perks that players within the league gain over time and recently, Sacramento Kings guard Ben McLemore got a pretty big honor from his hometown in Missouri.
McLemore grew up in a small town called Wellston, Missouri (near St. Louis) and early on Friday, Ben posted the below tweet showing that the street that he lived on as a kid was renamed in his honor:

It’s pretty cool that McLemore got a street named after him and now when he goes home, he can see how far he has come.
