JP Gibson isn’t your ordinary 5 year old boy. Gibson was diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Which is one of the many horrible diseases in the world we live in today. The Jazz wanted Gibson to have a chance to play on the NBA court and they signed him to a one day contract which allowed him to play in the Jazz scrimmage game. Check out his highlights down below:

Gibson came in for Toure Murry. It’s always nice to see that the NBA cares and shows why it’s one of the best organizations in pro sports today.
