Thaddeus Young Dunk Makes Philadelphia 76ers Fan Go Crazy (VIDEO)

After a disillusioning week in sports, this video of a young 76ers fan reacting to a Thaddeus Young dunk will remind even the most cynical fan why we continue to watch.

No stranger to the throw down, the Philadelphia forward capitalized on a missed three-pointer with a one-handed slam that sent the boy into a fit of sheer, screaming joy Wednesday.

One hopes the young fan has enough excitement left over to celebrate his team during the regular season. Regardless, it was the best in-game reaction we've seen since a 6-year-old Ukraine fan celebrated Andriy Shevchenko's goal against Sweden in Euro 2012.
