Kelly Melton is 7-years-old, and he's battling leukemia. A lot of his time is spent in the University of Kentucky Children's Hospital — which isn't too far from where Nerlens Noel plays college basketball!

It turns out, Nerlens is actually pretty good… as he's poised to go from college player to number one pick in this June's NBA draft!

He also has time for Kelly, and adorably invited him to go along to the famous Kentucky Derby, where they ran the red carpet like pros!

The best moment, though, was captured for Twitter (above)! That's Nerlens lifting Kelly over rising rain water so he doesn't get all wet!

We bet Kelly had the best day ever! What an amazing guy Nerlens is!

So fab!
