Normally here at That NBA Lottery Pick, we focus on the off-the-wall and funny stories but every once an awhile we have to do a heartwarming one.
Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert is making one wish come true for 11-year old Lee Eddins of Sacramento, California.
Eddins has stage four leukemia and was planning to go see Roy play in an upcoming game but the disease is preventing him from seeing the game. After hearing the story, Roy felt compelled to plan a visit to see the youngster:
“Once I heard he had a dying wish, I knew I had to do something more than send him presents and Skype with him on the computer,” Hibbert said.
“I’m usually uncomfortable going to hospitals when the Pacers do events because it’s pretty tough to see kids in that situation. Once I heard about (Lee), I realized I had to get over it and do it for him.”
