This will definitely bring a smile to your face.

The Utah Jazz signed 5-year-old JP Gibson to their roster for a day to fulfill his ultimate wish of playing for his favorite team.

Gibson was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2012. But thanks to the kind folks on the Jazz, he was given a uniform and allowed to play with the team during their scrimmage game.

JP’s mother, Meagan Gibson, spoke out about her son’s big day.

Before the game JP and his family were treated to a press conference for the contract signing.

“JP loves most sports, but basketball is definitely his favorite,” said his mother Megan Gibson. “When he was just over a year old, he would sit with my husband Josh watching games. He started insisting on shooting hoops for an hour each night before bedtime when he was just 15 months old. He knows he has to be six before he can play Junior Jazz, and he reminds us all the time that he can’t wait until he’s six.”

Gibson also stretched with the players…

Had some laughs with the team…

And scored a dunk with the help of Rudy Gobert.

It’s safe to say that the little guy had the best day ever.

Check out the adorable moment in the video above.
