Utah Jazz sign 5yo to a one day contract
How is this for a nice gesture? The Utah Jazz signed 5yo JP Gibson to a one day contract.
Diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia in 2012, Gibson checked in to the game with 29 seconds to go in the third period of an intra-club scrimmage. To the roar of the crowd, Gibson gets the inbound pass and burns past first round darft pick, Dante Exum for a dunk in traffic.
I have never been a huge fan of the Utah Jazz but you simply have to respect the gesture. Treating the little dude and his family to a day they will remember.
It is moments like this that make you realise that in this day and age of self-centredness that there chivalry still exists; and those knights wear Jazz jerseys.
