DeRozan, Lowry & Masai Ujiri Join in Surprise for Autistic Dancing Barista

An autistic 17-year old got a surprise from Ellen DeGeneres with the help of the Toronto Raptors. Sam, who is a dancing barista with autism at a Starbucks in Toronto was featured on today's Ellen show to share his inspirational story. Sam had always had dreams of being a barista and had the opportunity to make that dream come true when his boss Chris had helped employ the 17-year old.

Ellen had a few surprises for Sam that included a trip to Japan and also a surprise for Chris from the Raptors All-Stars Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and GM Masai Ujiri.  Shoutouts to Ellen and the Toronto Raptors for such a nice gesture to two good people!
