We just learned that the NBA has promoted the story of Lorelei Decker's cancer battle and her wish to be coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder to the top spot on their national website! NBA.com/caravan.
Yes, indeed, her battle is indeed "Bigger than Basketball." Thank you to the NBA for promoting the story of this truly inspiring 17 year old. And thank you to Make-A-Wish of Oklahoma for making it all possible in the first place.
It's been such a blessing to watch how wonderful Coach Scott Brooks and his entire coaching staff have been with Lorelei. They took her in and treated her like one of their own. For this one day she was not just "Lorelei with Cancer" but "Lorelei, Coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder." It was also quite fun to watch the Thunder as they quickly learned that Lorelei knew her stuff.
