When it comes to NBA pregames, it really doesn’t get much sweeter than this, as a little boy named Brayden Whitley, who happens to be a Dallas Mavericks fan, was spotted in the AAC audience on Thursday by Dallas assistant coach Darrell Armstrong. What D.A. saw? The boy’s sign, proclaiming that his doctor’s advice to “watch Luka Doncic play” could serve as a cure to the boy’s epileptic seizures. Our friend Dorothy Gentry of Texas Metro News records the moment, capturing the video of a little boy with epilepsy … and his interaction with Armstrong and then, eventually, onto the floor with Luka, the budding NBA superstar who leads in the early voting for the All-Star Game, is an early MVP candidate in just his second NBA season, and obviously has a soft spot for kids … as does D.A.
Armstrong’s foundation has donated over $1 million since 2002 to help AdventHealth for Children and its programs that assist families with premature babies. It’s a cause near and dear to Armstrong, since he has a son and a daughter who were both born prematurely. A guard for the Magic from 1995-2003, Armstrong knows of the financial burdens and stress and strain that goes with having a premature baby and simply wanted to step up and help in any way he could. Since his foundation started, Armstrong has opened three child development centers in Central Florida and has also purchased an ambulance to transport children from one hospital to another. “This foundation has been blessed, and in so many ways we also have blessed a lot of premature babies and a lot of families to give them the extra help and care that they need, and that’s what you want,” Armstrong told Mavs.com in an exclusive interview. “I want babies, I want kids to have a future and have a chance to make a difference in this world, and I believe we are giving them that chance.”
