Teacher, basketball great Phil Ford team up on childhood obesity research center


North Carolina basketball legend Phil Ford was looking for a cause for a foundation he wanted to set up when he thought about a kid he’d befriended at one of his basketball camps. Ford said he felt bad because the boy was obese. “The ball wouldn’t fit between his legs,” he said. In the afternoons, Ford would draw plays for the boy and everyone would cheer him on.
