this is a very cool story and huge props go out to the Philadelphia 76ers organization.
At the team's practice facility, the Philadelphia 76ers announced they will sign Bensalem High School senior Kevin Grow, who has Down syndrome, on Monday to a "ceremonial two-day contract."
Grow, age 18, was featured in a Feb. 8 YouTube video in which he drained four three-pointers in less than two minutes for his high school's varsity basketball team, the Owls, on Senior Day, according to Philly.com's Matt Breen.
With every shot Grow made, the crowd and his teammates erupted in what was a quintessential display of unity. More importantly, it wasn't an anomaly or singular act for the Owls. This type of unification, this connection between Grow, his teammates and the game of basketball extends into traditionally menial activities, such as practice.
