NBA Star -- Praised By Disabled Man ... 'Courtside Seats Were Amazing'

EXCLUSIVE

The disabled man who made headlines after releasing a video showing the harassment he endured on the streets of Toronto just spoke with "TMZ Hollywood Sports" about the V.I.P. treatment he received courtesy of NBA star Greivis Vasquez ... and it's a pretty cool story.

As we previously reported, Vasquez reached out to Andre Arruda after seeing the video online ... and invited him to a Raptors game over the weekend.

Now, Arruda -- an actor/comic -- is talking about the experience with "TMZ Hollywood Sports" ... telling us why he thought the whole thing was a joke at first ... but then found himself sitting courtside.

Arruda also says the guys plan to keep in touch.

Make sure to check out the entire interview on Reelz tonight at 8 PM ET ... 5 PM PT!!
