Lance Allred was the first legally deaf player in the NBA. At almost seven feet tall, you might think he was blessed with a lot of natural talent, but his road to the NBA was not an easy one. Lance gives a lot of credit to Mrs. Aston, a 6th grade teacher who helped him look beyond his hearing impediment and use his natural grit and determination to succeed when others might easily quit. He also has a message for teachers who may occasionally wonder if they are really making a difference the lives of the kids they teach. - - - - Music Attribution: "60's Quiz Show" by Podington Bear is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license ( Artist: Meditation Impromptu 03 by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license ( Source: Artist:
