When Chris was young, everyone told him that he was too small to play basketball. He would never be able to jump as high, shoot as far, or run as fast. Just quit, they all said. But Chris wouldn’t listen. With the encouragement of his family, he worked twice as hard as all the other kids and made the team. And he even though he wasn’t the biggest or strongest, he stuck with it and become one of the world’s best players. And this is the true story of Chris’ struggle to make one of his first teams.
