Re: Mavs give Chris Wright a shot
 
Wright became the first-known NBA player to acknowledge having multiple sclerosis when he signed a 10-day deal with Dallas and joined the Mavs in San Antonio. That's a fact that Wright is especially proud of after earning a call-up from the D-League.

"That's definitely one of the things I pride myself on, being the face of it and being an inspiration and motivation for people to keep fighting." said Wright, who averaged 15.5 points, 7.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.6 steals for the Iowa Energy this season to earn a D-League All-Star bid. "I made history with this."
