The struggles -- and triumphs -- of Chris Carrino

Adrian Wojnarowski --who we should always remember got his start covering the Nets-- offers a compelling portrait of the Nets radio play-by-play announcer, Chris Carrino Friday, detailing how he has taken his struggles with FSHD, a form of muscular dystrophy,. and turned it into a crusade for a cure.

The video includes not just his challenges as a radio announcer, but his relationship with Tim Capstraw, his long time analyst; his wife, Lauren; his son Christopher (who has a 50 percent chance of contracting the disease) and the medical researchers he has funded through the Chris Carrino Foundation.
