    Great story.on a slighly similar note, I saw Dallas has a fantasy camp where you can become a maverick for a day. You run drills, get jerseys, get to play scrimmages. Wish the rockets could do something like that.

    Memphis should trade him to a contender.

    It definitely is a nice and touching story to hear, but at the same time makes you realize this is one of so many other kids that are sick in the world that possibly never get the chance to do the things they wish.

    Hopefully they can help more and more.

    The Knicks were the first to do this... they signed some handicapped dude and his lil bro to long term contracts! Although I heard they recently released lil bro... :(

    (not to make light of this great story... just taking a shot at the Knicks/JR Smith)
