The NBA Has A New Youngest Player, And He's Adorable

File this under one of the cutest heartwarming stories you'll see all year. The Utah Jazz signed five-year-old JP Gibson to a one-day contract. Gibson has been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and was able to play with the Jazz as a part of photographer Jon Diaz's "Anything Can Be" project that creates storybooks for kids with cancer.

Gibson even made a highlight play in a team scrimmage--courtesy of a little assist from 7'1" center Rudy Gobert. Gibson can now say he's dunked in an NBA game. Not a bad accomplishment at all.
