The Memphis Grizzlies made history over the weekend by drafting the youngest player in NBA history.
8-year-old Charvis Brewer has cerebral palsy and can't walk on his own, but that didn't stop the Grizzlies from making his dream come true.
With the help of the Make-A-Wish foundation Brewer signed a contract and is now attending games and practices. He also got a whistle, a draft hat and he's even starting to take on a coaching role.
