Most of his opponents notice only Michael Jordan's basketball skills, but all a 6-year-old boy saw was the star's big heart.

Jordan, a member of the National Basketball Association Chicago Bulls, took time out before a game with the Detroit Pistons on Friday to visit with Kevin Hardiman, who traveled by ambulance to see his hero. The boy has been paralyzed since he was hit by a car March 1."He came right down to the ambulance," said Elizabeth Contreras, one of Hardiman's physicians in the pediatric intensive care unit at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Troy, Mich. "I can't believe he really took the time to care for a child. It really shows he has a big heart."
