Video: Kerry basketballer’s story is unbelievably, heart-warmingly inspirational

This special, special Killarney teenager will raise the hairs on your neck

Every once in a while, someone comes along and defies everything you think you know about this cruel world.

Every once in a while, someone pushes limits so far that you have to question every single thing you once thought impossible.

Jordan Lee’s story is just incredible.

Perhaps making the national development squads is a fine achievement for most.  But, for the 14-year-old Killarney man, his inclusion onto the Irish basketball U15 panel could change the sport as we know it.  And, do you know what, it could change the way most of us look at the world.

This incredible Kerry youngster has a dream and, no matter what cards he has been dealt, nothing is stopping him from chasing it.  Nothing.

Watch this spine-tingling video from Basketball Ireland.  It is the best thing you will do with your day.
