Dallas Mavericks Star Chris Wright Is The First Player In The NBA To Have MS

| Filed under: InspirationBasketball

Sometimes the impossible just isn't impossible, and Dallas Mavericks star, Chris Wright is proving that every single day of his life!!

The 23-year-old athlete has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and despite the fact that doctors told him that he would NEVER play in the NBA, Wright made himself stronger than his illness and is now the first jock with MS to play professional basketball.

MS is a disease that effects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, which in turn makes communication between the nerves extremely difficult.

People with MS may lose the ability to speak well or walk comfortably, and even though there's no cure, Chris is doing his best to live with his illness, and still hoop it up!

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) for all the deets on Wright's condition!
