Have you ever wondered what it would be like to practice and hang out with the Chicago Bulls? That wish became a reality this week for 13-year-old Parker Stevens, a Florida teen battling renal disease who loves the six-time champions.
Stevens, whose mother is from Chicago, was given the star treatment after signing a special one-day contract with the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Not only did he get his own press conference at the Advocate Center, the Bulls’ practice facility, but he also got to shoot around with the team and share some locker space with Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler.
It sounds like a dream day for any 13-year-old kid, let alone one that has to battle this terrible affliction. My hat’s off to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Chicago Bulls for creating such a special memory for Parker Stevens. Just look at how much fun he had.
