Pro player camps don’t always just benefit the attendees that get to see their favorite players and learn about the game and many times life. ┬áSometimes it’s the host and Pro Player that learns more or learns to appreciate more of life when they meet an inspirational attendee. ┬áThat was the case for James Harden when he met camper Cory Smith, who according to James has been through 4 brain surgeries.

Cory’s instagram handle is @MiracleMan5 and his story does sound like a miracle one. We wish him all the luck during his senior year.
