Seventeen years ago, Greg Hansbrough's battle with a brain tumor -- and his determination to walk, talk and play basketball again after its removal partially paralyzed the left side of his body -- set an example for his two younger brothers that has never waned. Work hard, play tough, and never give up. (Raleigh News & Observer)
