A 13-year-old kid with brain cancer got introduced with the Wizards

Saturday March 28th, 2015

The Wizards had a very special guest at their 110-107 double-overtime win over the Hornets on Friday. The team signed Nitin Ramachandran, a 13-year-old boy from Virginia with brain cancer, to a one-day contract. He got to hang out with the team throughout the day and even got introduced as part of the starting lineup.

Nitin watched shoutaround and helped coach up the big men. 

John Wall better hope Nitin doesn't take his spot permanently.
