The Amazingly-Heartwarming Story of Kevin Grow and The Philadelphia 76ers

Kevin Grow is an 18 year old senior at Bensalem High School in Pennsylvania, home of the Owls, where he is the basketball team manager…oh, and he also has Down Syndrome. During Senior Night at Bensalem, Kevin got the opportunity to play in the Owl’s last game, and he straight rocked it.

During the final minutes of the game, Kevin made 4 three pointers, one of which was a buzzer-beater. The video of the game immediately went viral, and overnight, Kevin became an internet celebrity.

Enter the Philadelphia 76ers. Once the team saw Kevin’s amazing game, they quickly put pen to paper, and signed the young man to a 2 day contract. The 76ers brought Kevin and his family to Philly, and treated him like a king, where he got his own locker, and his own #33 jersey. Then, the 76ers made Kevin’s dreams come true last night, as he was announced in the pregame pageantry, and led the team in their pregame huddle-dance. Watch the whole video, I promise you won’t regret it.

 

Thank you Philadelphia. Thank you for living up to your city’s motto; The City of Brotherly Love. Also, and for now, my faith in humanity has once again been restored.
