Basketball enables us to bring down our diversity; gender; status… Your own self, the ball and that basket up there are what matters. Basketball gave much to the guys of Vigevano’s Special Team (Italy): it created a group; it forged friendship and unity. It changed their lives. Where diversity might have meant isolation, exclusion, the sport created a vision: family, fellowship, passion. As soon as they enter the court (proudly wearing their uniform) they’re not “special boys” to other people’s eyes anymore. They’re players.
