"India's Yao Ming"

I have absolutely no investment in basketball (or sports in general, really), but when I read this story--about a giant young boy awakening India to the sport by virtue of his natural born height, his budding talent, and his humble sweetness, I smiled the whole way through. There's just something so gently reminiscent of all the best fairy tales in this story, and I appreciate a writer who can just enjoy a thing, as Mark Winegardner does here.

Satnam is between 14 and 16 in this picture.
