Yitizi Teichman was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer and had a tumor removed last year.
When the Make-A-Wish Foundation approached him, he knew right away he wanted to be a member of the Lakers.
The basketball team signed the teenager to a special one-day contract that was announced at a press conference on January 31.
As a baby, “my first word was Kobe,” the teen told reporters.
The team gave him his own jersey, a chance to shoot with the players and a courtside seat to watch the Lakers play the Charlotte Hornets.
Even though the Lakers lost, the team gave this teenager a win he will never forget.
