Special Olympian Alex Blauet had a blast at a recent Detroit Pistons game.
The 14-year-old is autistic and lives with his parents and sister in Livonia, Mich., about 20 miles from Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. His love for basketball began when he started doing unified sports at his school, which puts people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team.
