Great article by Jessica Camerato. Well written. Leon Powe-esque in its evocation of admiration and respect.

After you read the article, you really appreciate the following quote and can't help but root for Barbosa:

Today Barbosa is one of the friendliest faces in the Celtics locker room. Fellow guards Avery Bradley and Courtney Lee both used the word "positive" to describe him, and noted his approachability and kindness to his teammates.

Always sporting a smile, Barbosa gives no inkling to the turmoil he suffered in his past and is currently coping with in his personal life. Instead, he emits the optimism his parents instilled in him as a child.



Enjoy.

Really hope we keep him.

They have been through a lot. They and he deserve some breaks.
